A Cocktail & Conversation With TB&TB Crew -- Bookish Accessories?

Every other Thursday (errrr Friday this week) here at the Broke & The Bookish is  A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.

Jana asks: What's your favorite bookish accessory? Is it a particular tote bag, piece of jewelry, book light, etc.?

Bridget says: I'm going to go with the pillows my future in-laws bought us for Christmas this year. We got Edgar Allen Poe and Jane Austen (pictured below):

Jane actually creeps the hell out of me, but Edgar isn't so bad. Couldn't find a picture of him though.

Jamie says: This necklace that my friend Jen got me -- it's a quote from John Green's Looking For Alaska! It says "When I look at my room I see a girl who loves books."

Paula says: My favorite accessory is necklaces. I am a necklace fiend. So my favorite book related accessory is also necklaces.
So I have the Hogwarts seal, the Deathly Hallows, Hansel and Gretel, and Brave New World (my hands down favorite book). I also have a pair of "I <3 Neil Gaiman" earrings. And comic book shoes that I made (and shared here before). In the future I am planning on making a book clutch so if you ask me again in a few months I might have a different answer :D Oh gosh I have so many book related things that I love that I could list here actually... I'll spare you though!

What about you guys? What are YOUR favorite bookish accessories? Tell us...and maybe link us so um maybe we can do a little shopping??


  1. I've never seen any bookish accessories in South Africa. I look and look but can't find any. One day when I'm big I'll import them myself :P

  2. I have a couple of book earrings that I received a few years ago that I love, so guess those would be my current faves!

  3. I love that John Green quote ;) I have tons of bookish tote bags, I'm not sure if those count as accessories?
    -Scott Reads It!

  4. Love this post!! I have an Edgar Allen Poe pin that I often wear on my lapel...being a librarian means it isn't TOO strange to do things like that LOL! I must ask you Paula, where did you get the Neil Gaiman earrings?! I NEED THEM. NEED. :)

  5. I really like the pillow. I want author pillows too!

  6. Mine is my I Capture the Castle canvas bag from the Literary Gift Company. It has the first line written across is, and I Capture The Castle is my favourite book ever. It fits everything in and is super strong so easily filled with books.

  7. I have a Mockingjay pin and a Shadowhunter tshirt! There's also a Pride and Prejudice scarf I've got my eye on! :-)
