It’s no secret we here at Storied Threads are avid readers and draw a lot of inspiration from our favorite books — and we’re definitely in a literary frame of mind as Boskone, a Boston-based convention that focuses heavily on genre literature, is coming up in a few weeks.

(Sorry, folks, we won’t be there vending, we’re just going to actually go to the con as guests. That’ll be a new experience!)

bibliophileSo this week we’re spotlighting some items that should be of interest to our reader friends, starting with the Bibliophile Geek Merit Badge ($7). We also offer variations of this design on an embroidered bookmark and on a messenger bag. FYI, we haven’t made tablet or laptop sizes in this design yet, but if that sounds like something you or a fellow reader would be interested in, drop us a line and ask about a custom order!

me-timeSpeaking of bookmarks, we have several designs listed in our Literature section, but I’m going to spotlight the “Me Time” bookmark ($8).

We came up with this idea after hearing a lot of stories — too many, in our opinion — of people being harassed in coffee shops and on public transit while they were just trying to sit and read in peace.

Make sure the top of this bookmark is peeking out and send a clear message that you’re not there to chat, you’re there to read.

 

 

Nevermore Messenger Bag

As it happens, the basic messenger bag is the perfect size for holding a hardcover or trade paperback size book!

Remember, these and other designs are also available as stickers, laptop skins, T-shirts, and more at our Redbubble store.

ArcaneLoreThe best books are the hardest to find. Buried in used bookstores and the locked rooms of libraries, full of secrets and whispers and bound in who-knows-what. Just be careful – some pages are best left unread.

This new Geek Merit Badge design is available as a patch in our Etsy shop and on our website, and is available as a sticker on Redbubble.
