Bookish Ramblings: Cashmere Writing Gloves – Literary Book Gifts

Hello, my bookish peeps. It has been said that it is better to give than to receive. Almost everyone loves receiving gifts, whether it’s for a holiday such as Mother’s Day, an occasion like a graduation or a birthday, or just because. I’m sure many of you know book loving crafters, writers, artists, etc. that may suffer from cold hands no matter the temperature indoors or out. If you’re looking for a gift idea for a holiday, occasion, or just because, then Literary Book Gifts may have just the thing for you with their all new cashmere writing gloves, pictured below. These gloves are available in 13 beautiful colors including the lovely pictured heather purple. (What can I say, I have a thing for purple!) These gloves are made of a breathable knit of about 35% cashmere wool and include cotton, polyester, and microfiber blended in for durability. (This is a paid promotional post. I received free product in exchange for this post.)

These writing gloves are being modeled by my lovely niece, Ms. A (I had a difficult time finding the perfect hijab [head scarf] to use for the background, but I think the one I chose worked out well). Her twin sister, Ms. J., was just a bit jealous once she felt how unbelievably soft the gloves were. I’ve worn these beauties while typing up blog posts (including this one), reading, and doing some cross-stitch. They are incredibly soft, warm, giving, and didn’t interfere with any of my activities especially the needlework. 

Now, I’m not saying you should only gift these lovely cashmere writing gloves for you gift-giving occasion, but they do make a perfect year-round cashmere gift idea. If you need additional bookish gift-giving ideas, I’m sure you’ll be able to find the perfect something at Literary Book Gifts for the reader in your life.

Bookish Ramblings: Banned Books Week & Literary Book Gifts

Hello, my bookish peeps. I hope you’re all having a great week and getting some wonderful reading time in, and perhaps one of your reads this week or month will be a banned or challenged book. 

What is a banned or challenged book? A banned or challenged book is any book that has been restricted or removed from schools or libraries due to “objectionable content.” The problem is that what is “objectionable” to one person is perfectly “acceptable” to another. Most people presume that if you don’t like the content of a book then you simply won’t read it, whereas others feel that that the book should be restricted or completely removed so no one will be able to read it. I know, kind of silly, but there you have it. Nationwide, libraries, schools, bookstores, publishers, authors, etc. are acknowledging the “freadom to read” with #BannedBooksWeek.

Normally, I just post something about #BannedBooksWeek on social media and leave it at that. This year, I’m doing something a little different. I’m pleased to announce that in conjunction with Literary Book Gifts, all The Book Diva’s Reads blog visitors can receive a 20% discount at Literary Book Gifts by using the following coupon code: THEBOOKDIVASREADS20 (no expiration date).
