I am a serious bookworm. I got rid of tons of clothes when we were moving from Germany to the USA, but I kept most of my books. Point at one on my bookshelf, and I can tell you where I bought it and during what time of my life I read it! True story!
People are trying to push me into the eReader century, but maybe it is because of my profession: I love books. I love the haptic.
I love the smell of a new book. No fancy eReader can beat that feeling!
M always says if I pass away before he does, he will bury me in a book shaped casket. Morbid sense of humor, I know.
I read a lot! Funny thing: In Germany I was mostly reading English books, and now, living in the USA, I mostly read German books. 4 German, 1 English so far, to be specific.
Since it's a known fact there are a couple of fellow bookworms reading my little blog, I got the opportunity to review an amazing online store for book lovers: GoneReading.com!
"GoneReading markets a unique collection of gifts for readers and book lovers – what we call brilliant products for the reading lifestyle – many of which can only be found on this site at GoneReading.com. If you love to read, you’re going to love GoneReading.
We don’t sell books. Rather, we sell products that enhance your reading life. From functional reading accessories to bookish home décor, GoneReading improves the quality of your reading experience and surrounds you with delightful bookish-ness you won’t find elsewhere.
Unlike other shopping sites, GoneReading was founded specifically to spread the magic of reading in the developing world. That’s why we’ve pledged 100% of after-tax profits to fund reading related charities, especially the work of our good friends at READ Global and Ethiopia Reads.
Although we have a particular fondness for the printed book, GoneReading supports all types of reading formats, including e-readers, tablets, printed newspapers and magazines. We believe that access to great writing – regardless of the format in which it is consumed - is what really matters most."
I was allowed to pick one of the original book and reading-themed t-shirts out of their huge selection. All the shirts empower you to "shout out" your love of reading to the world. Each shirt features a clever design and slogan to reflect a particular aspect of the reading lifestyle. Only readers will know the inside joke! 100% cotton, 100% Money-Back-Guarantee.
I decided to get this one (because... that's just 100% Anni).
Shipping was fast: my shirt came in the mail yesterday! It's a great t-shirt. It's very high quality preshrunk cotton, so no surprises after the first trip to the laundromat. The color and print are exactly the way I expected them to be from the picture shown above.
If you are looking for a father's day gift, or birthday gifts, go ahead and check out GoneReading.com! They have some awesome items!
And here is what you were waiting for: One of my lovely readers can win one of these awesome & "bookalishious" t-shirts as well!
