Hand Bookends

Can anyone ever have too many bookends?  I think these would be an interesting addition to a children’s bookshelf and they are only $12.95 from Barnes & Noble.

Book Lovers Clock

I’m thinking about taking this to heart until after November 4th.  That way I won’t be subjected to any of those annoying, deceptive political ads they’ll be running.

And this is quite reasonably priced at $20.

Wall “Art”

I’d love to do something like this but I currently don’t have the wall space for it.  The best part is that they are removable so you could take it with you if are a renter or decided to sell your house.  I found this on Wonderful Graffiti.  If you don’t see something you like on the website, you can also create your own designs.  Very clever, I think.

Bookmark Timers

Getting kids to read can be a difficult prospect for some parents.  When I worked at the library, we always offered a summer reading program to encourage kids to keep reading over the summer break.  We asked them to set a daily goal, based on time, and they could win small prizes for doing so.  I think these would have been a great prize!

 

They are a bit pricey at $8.95 each, but they do come with a battery!
