The Christmas roundup begins!

It's time once more for the festive book and library related gift listing. I know, I know, it's only November, but if you want some of these presents to arrive in good time, you'll need to start shopping now.

So, lets begin with bookends. Lumps that stop books from sliding off shelves by their sheer weight, or fancy tricks by the makers. Sometimes, they're pretty, sometimes they're fugly. Form your own opinions of the ones here (although I've mainly aimed for cool/funky/unusual, I allowed a few odd ones to sneak in)....

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour! Dollshouse insta-library (including 50 Shades of Grey, and the Hunger Games trilogies) Miniature haunted library Miniature Victorian library Still one of my favourites: themed mini
