    1. Floating bookshelves that are more or less just a mounted bracket for an optical illusion that'll showcase your current faves.


    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately 5–7 hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time." —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $22.40+ (available in two sizes).

    2. A scratch-off poster that'll double as wall art and a reading challenge. So visitors will be able to see if you've read the gothic classic Wuthering Heights and then know if you can discuss Tom Hardy as Heathcliff. (Plz fetch my fainting couch.)

    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $15 (available in 100 Books or 100 Kid's Books).

    3. A library card pillow for snuggling up with as you figure out which library book you're going to read first.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.95.

    5. An approps candle for anyone who walks into a used bookstore, pauses, and takes in a big-ass whiff. (I too am one of those people!)


    My friend has one of these and it indeeds smells *exactly* how you'd expect! So how does it smell? Like cherry blossoms in full bloom, stone-faced buildings, and leather-bound books in a sunlit library. Aka, heaven.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    6. Or a saintly candle of your favorite authors so you can light one up for 'em when you're diving back into one of their tomes for the umpteenth time. (Books get better each time you read them, do not @ me.)


    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in Edgar Allan Poe, Jane Austen, Kurt Vonnegut, Virginia Woolf, and William Shakespeare).

    7. A matchbox set in honor of some famous banned books because your literary candles need some fitting companions!

    Out of Print

    Get them from Out of Print for $8.

    8. A book-like nightlight you can use as some comfort when you awaken from a nightmare that is definitely thanks to that scary-ass book you're reading.

    LOL if I didn't wake up from nightmares while reading Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. It's sooooo good!

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with nightlights and this one is among my favorite ones. I love the unique design of the book, which makes me feel so calmed and peaceful. Both light colors are good for evening use and the lightness is just at the perfect degree. Very easy to turn on and turn off the light by simply opening and closing the book! It looks just like an ordinary book while it has light in it! The battery doesn’t last very long. Need to charge it after one week of use." —Eloise

    9. Shot glasses featuring famous literary drinkers that'll help liven up things AND technically count as decor if you leave them out on display ;).


    Get them from Amazon for $16.95.

    10. Agate bookends to showcase your current reads at home. Really though, how do people only read one book at a time?


    Promising review: "Based on everything I read in the description and reviews I decided to get the 7–8 lbs. set. I'm happy with them and the look nice in my space. (See photo) One was a little bigger than the other one but that would be typical for such a unique product. A product like this at West Elm or Z Gallerie would be half the size and double the cost, so this is a great value. It would be very helpful if others would post the photos of what they received, as that was the biggest struggle in making the decision to purchase. Knowing this is a natural stone and no two will be alike." —Savvy Buyer

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in six colors and four sizes).

    11. A Brothers Grimm magnetic poetry kit for anyone who's into the OG fairy tales with the gore and terror before Disney starting making cartoons.

    Promising review: "I had an ugly workspace, complete with a tangled array of cords, and wires, and even after lassoing them into a single strand, the cords were still an eyesore. So I purchased the bookshelf tapestry, and voilà! My area was transformed into a cozy reading cubby! Now everyone at work is purchasing their own tapestry to disguise their ugly wall." —Cyn
