Today I'm featuring a guest post for all you bookworms to make your reading experience even better. Do any of you keep these items on hand while reading? I like to have a book journal on hand for the nonfiction books I read.

If you’re a bookworm, you probably just need a good book to be happy. However, there are a bunch of extra things you can buy to make reading even better. Here are eight crucial items you need while reading.
When you finish a good book, all you want to do is talk about it. But if you don’t know anyone that has read the book, you’re going to feel frustrated. That’s why you should buy a book journal. After every book you read, you can jot down your thoughts and reflections. This is a great way of living your life through the books you read.
A Huge Mug
Some books can keep your attention for hours. You don’t want to interrupt the fun because your mug is empty! That’s why you need a huge mug. Fill it with your favorite hot drink, whether it’s cocoa or coffee, and you won’t have to resurface for hours. And if you want it to stay warm, get a custom Yeti mug.
An LED Book Light
If you like reading at night, you absolutely need an LED book light. This allows you to read anywhere, without turning the lights on. LED book lights are especially useful if you share a bed with someone that needs to get to sleep first.
As a bookworm, there are few things more annoying than losing your page. That’s why you need a stack of bookmarks to hand. But don’t just get any bookmark. You should get bookmarks that fit your personality. That way, you’ll get a little boost every time you place one on your favorite page.
A Bookish Tote Bag
You’re going to need a bag to carry all of your books around in. Whether you’re going for a reading session at the local park or jumping on a train, it’s great to have a tote bag to suit your books. Tote bags are perfect for carrying books around because they won’t get squished together. So, if you care about keeping them in great condition, this is the way to go.
Books aren’t that heavy. But if you stack a bunch of them on a weak shelf, it’s bound to fall down. To stop this from happening, install high-quality shelves to hold your books. There are many different designs of shelves and bookcases to suit your interior decor.
A Book Stamp
Books are a very personal item. If you want to put your mark on them forever, you should consider getting a personalized book stamp. This will help you keep track of your books when you lend them to friends and family. Plus, it’s a nice little ritual every time you buy a new book.
A Book Sleeve
If you regularly take your books out into the world, you should consider getting a book sleeve. This is a fabric cover that protects your book from ripping, crushing, or bending.
Even if you don’t take a lot of care over your books, this is an important item because it will make them last longer.

I really enjoyed this article. I didn't realize what a bookie bookworm I was. I have all those things except the last two, the book stamp and the book sleeve.ReplyDelete
