GreenBeanTeenQueen Gift Guide: Bookish Gifts

You don't just have to give books for the holidays-you can give book lovers all sorts of bookish gifts. These are some of my favorites.

Postertext posters are great for any booklover! It's a poster that features a books text and made into very cool black and white artwork. If you don't see your favorite title listed you can make a suggestion-right now the focus in on classics. The hard part is figuring out which poster you want!

Unshelved has lots of great library t-shirts, but I think this catalog one is my favorite! Sure to make any librarian laugh!

Cafe Press is one of my favorite places to look for bookish gifts. Search "librarian" for loads of gift ideas that are great for the librarian or library lover in your life. You can also search for "booklover" or "reading" for more great ideas.

Journals Unlimited has a great reader's journal. I have one and I love it because it helps me make notes on books I've read that I can use later in my blog reviews (since I should write reviews right after I read a book but don't always do so!) If you like keeping track of what you read, this journal is for you!

And what's a bookish guide without entries from Etsy? I love this banned books locket! What about this adorable book charm bracelets? What about a bracelet that shows off your favorite reads? And I really think I need this print for my office/home library.

Have any other favorite bookish gifts? I'd love to hear about them!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
