I have read soooo many books. One of the questions everyone always asks me is how do I find time to read with the amount of kids that we have.
The answer is that I’m a Reading Ninja and I read all the time. I keep my e-reader with me and sneak read whenever I have to wait. With 5 kids that are all involved in lots of activities my life consists of a lot of waiting.This makes me one of those difficult people to buy a book for. By the time the book is on the shelves to buy I’ve had it on my ‘to-be-read’ pile for ages.
To make it a bit easier for the people that buy me gifts I’ve made a wonderful list of bookish things that I would love to receive. All my bookworm friends can thank me later. Just mail the link of the post to your significant other. They can thank me later as well, maybe with something from the list. (wink, wink)
I am still mourning the fact that by the time I learned about Hogwarts I was too old to receive a Hogwarts letter. I’ve been on every adventure with Harry Potter and it is one of my favourite things to discuss with Gamer Boy. On my Christmas list will be this mug from GlassBlastedArt
Or these Hogwarts house onesies from FanFash on Etsy.
If I receive a Hogwarts onesie for Christmas I would curl up with a book, pretend that my life isn’t chaos, that I don’t have five kids and I will just read till New Years.
Which means I probably need one of these. Eat sleep read T-Shirt from IndieBound.org. Just in case I need to put the onesie in the wash.
Or if I suddenly have the urge to go to gym. This T-Shirt from Lookhuman.com
I might also need some of these from Paddywax.com. Just to set the mood.
And definitely some book luminaries from Oldendesigns on Etsy.
And some lovely banned book socks to keep me warm and cozy from Outofprintclothing.com
And of course I need a cover for my ipad from Twelvesouth.com
There is not a lot of things that are as pretty as an old book, but if you can’t carry all your favourite books with you, you can wear this beautiful bracelet from ALikelyStory.
And when I finally decide to lift my nose out of a book and take a walk in the real world again what better way to do it than dressed up in these beautiful bookish heels from lyst.com.
Matilda is an intricately detailed platform with gold embossed illustrations, entitled with ‘enchanted’ and ‘book of spells’ spine heels
What reading Ninja or bookworm would not melt for these beautiful shoes and just read the description. I want to wear them just for the ‘book of spells’ heels.
There you have it. Ten bookish gifts for your Ninja Reader friends.
And one extra for my teenager who has been reading Harry Potter since the first book came out and I know will be re-reading it for years to come. This Harry Potter wand from Barnesandnoble.com. This will have to do till I can find that bloody owl that got lost with your Hogwarts letter.
If you come across interesting, bookish things that you think I would love please let me know.
