Readers, it’s the weekend! I hope you are having a leisurely coffee, perhaps chewing on a croissant.
Christmas is a month away, and I thought I’d help you out with the Christmas Present List. Do you have a bookworm in your life? Who am I kidding, you read Any Other Wedding, you probably ARE a bookworm. If so, you can thank me later – your Christmas shopping can be done in one fell swoop at The Literary Gift Company. It’s a beauty of a website, a “one-stop-shop for all book lovers”, with a whole range of gifts for the readers and writers in your life…from a homeware, to stationery, to wrapping paper, to jewellrey. They are particularly interested in promoting products which recycle, or ‘upcycle’ abandoned or out-of-date books.
From this Louisa May Alcott canvas shopper (they have a whole range), which I refuse to wander round London without:
All my presents must henceforth come wrapped with Virginia Woolf parcel tape… with the quotation “Life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope which surrounds us from the beginning of conciousness to the end” (from ‘Modern Fiction’ (1924)). The quotation “loops endlessly around the tape in this beautiful hand-lettered design”. Um…yes please.
