And, I want to make it perfectly clear that Brad did send me three products so I could see the quality of the merchandise at GoneReading. There are hundreds of items for booklovers on the site. I will definitely use The Reading Woman notecards. (If you've ever won one of my giveaways, you know I send handwritten notes.) Here's the description.
The Reading Woman series features useful products for the modern woman, each adorned with classic paintings of women reading. This beautiful notecard set of 20 cards features the works of Albert Pisa, George Dunlop Leslie, Leonid and Olga Tikhomirov and Carl Olof Larsson.
And, if you're like me, and keep track of the books you've read, "Books I've Read: A Bibliphile's Journal" is perfect. It's not only attractive, but there's plenty of room for summarizing the books. From the website, "This simple, beautifully illustrated reading journal will empower you to record and preserve your bookish thoughts for years to come. Each entry provides you with two full pages of lined space. Intermittent artwork – based on Deborah Needleman’s book The Perfectly Imperfect Home – adds character and inspiration for your writing pleasure. Includes lists of award-winning books from the past, including Pulitzer Prize, Man Booker Prize, National Book Award winners and many more." (OK, I do admit I don't read literary books, so the award winner pages are only for professional interest for me.)
There are also gifts related to a few authors; Edgar Allan Poe gifts, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain. I have the Edgar Allan Poe inspired scented candle in a travel tin. "This travel candle features a unique blend of scents inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, the 19th century writer from the Romantic Movement. Beautifully packaged in a foil-stamped tin, this makes the perfect gift for readers of fine literature. Artfully blended with soy wax, scented in Cardamom, Absinthe, & Sandalwood, poured in a 3.5 oz. travel tin. Each travel candle includes two wicks."
Check out the picture. You can see the quality of the gifts. And, that's why Brad Wirz sent me a couple items. I'm a book lover who hates to shop. But, I wouldn't write about gifts for book lovers if I didn't know they were worth sharing with you. And, then, there's that philanthropy. A reader always wants to share the love of reading, and you can do that through GoneReading.com.
FTC Full Disclosure - Brad Wirz sent me the three items so I could see the variety and quality if I wanted to blog about them.
