Top Ten Tuesday — Bookish Wants

06 Nov

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

This week’s topic was a freebie.  With the holidays coming up, I thought I would take the opportunity to highlight some of my bookish wants.  Now this won’t be a list of books I want, but rather bookish gifts I want.  Enjoy the pretties…

And to any relatives or friends looking for gifts for me for Christmas, these are great ones.  Plus I have a wishlist posted on Amazon including specific books I want.

1. Jane Austen Penguin Classics — I know I said no books, but these are more like art than books.  I really really really want the entire set for my house. Check out those gorgeous spines… I especially love the feathers on Persuasion.  Link is to only Persuasion, but will lead to the others.

2. Out of Print’s Pride and Prejudice Shirt or the Matching Tote

3. Storiarts Persuasion Scarf on Etsy

4. Library storage bins from RoadsidePhotographs on Etsy

5. Hand Painted Necklaces from Heather Kent on Etsy — variety of designs

6. Vintage Dictionary Prints from TheRekindledPage on Etsy — Love the Alice ones!

7. Pride and Prejudice necklace from JezebelCharms on Etsy

8. Doctor Who and Alice mashup print from Parodies Lost on Etsy — two of my favorite characters in one print!

9. Red Riding Hood tee from binarywinter on Etsy

10. Beautiful handmade journals and sketchbooks from Bookgirls Studio on Etsy

    I got a Pride and Prejudice scarf for my birthday this year. I love it! I also love the Jane Austen penguin classics, but wish P&P wasn’t that ugly green color.

    I have been eyeing that story scarf FOREVER! So cute. And the Penguin classics are just beautiful. I stroke them every time I visit Anthropologie 😉
