World Book and Copyright Day is a holiday created by UNESCO on April 23rd that’s, YES, a day dedicated to reading book. According to the United Nations, its official mission statement is “to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for the irreplaceable contributions of those, who have furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity.” While sadly, we don’t get a day off from it, there’s no reason why we can’t commemorate our love for literature in style and accessorize our day with bookish goodies.
1. A Booksleeve from BookBeau
Handmade in the US, this gorgeous sleeve comes in different sizes and can fit anything from a small kindle all the way to a large hardcover and iPad.
2. Belle’s Bookshop T-Shirt
Whether or not Belle from Beauty and the Beast is your favorite Disney princess, it’s hard not to relate to her love for literature. Who doesn’t want their own library?! This comfy shirt offers a fun blend of Disney meets books and is suited for every occasion. If Belle actually had a book shop, we’d be there in a heartbeat!
3. A Book Holder/Travel Pillow
Not only can you use this as a travel pillow, but this book holder makes travel reading so much easier. Not only can you manipulate it to sit at any angle, but it has a fixed page folder so you don’t need to need holding the book. Buying this for my next trip ASAP.
