Announcing the Box of Bookish Things Subscription Box!

Announcing the Box of Bookish Things Subscription Box!

I admit it. I love a good subscription box. I love knowing it’s coming (ANTICIPATION!!!), I love wondering what will be in it (SURPRISES!), and I love discovering new things through it (INTRODUCTIONS!).

I’ve subscribed to food boxes…makeup boxes for my daughter…clothes boxes.


And there are a lot of book boxes out there too. Fantasy boxes. Kids boxes. Christian fiction boxes. Those are fabulous. Who doesn’t love getting surprised by books?? It’s a fantastic way to be introduced to new authors, get special editions, and be delighted by some items that tie in with the book, too.

But…what about a box that isn’t books…and yet is aimed at book lovers?

What about a box full of book-themed jewelry…and clothing…and mugs…and notepads. Book-themed pens…and bookmarks…and tote bags…and ornaments. What about all those bookish delights that make us go “Gasp! YES! I need that to proclaim my book-love!”

Introducing the Box of Bookish Things subscription box!

Well look no further, friends! I’ve got you covered!

Ever since I opened up the Bookish Things shop, I’ve been saving every single bookish product that makes me grin and gasp. And now, it’s all coming together in one box of delights, sent straight to your door!

This monthly subscription box will have seasonal items where appropriate, new things each month. A few of them you may have spotted on my site before, but most will be new, and very few of these things are available on Amazon or at other online retailers.

How to Sign Up

We’re launching the Box of Bookish Things with a waiting-list model. This first month there will only be TWENTY BOXES. Next month we’ll scale up to FIFTY.

Sign up for the waiting-list with the form below. The first twenty to sign up will be sent a private purchase link for this first month; the others will be offered first chance at next month’s box, as will this month’s purchasers.

Here’s what we have planned for the first few months!

September – Autumn Themed, with items that combine books and cozy delights
October –
Generally Bookish, to give you an idea of what’s in store!
November – Christmas Themed
, featuring ornaments and items that combine Christmas and books
December – New Year Themed, so you’re prepared for your next year of reading

Open your Box of Bookish Things
for only $29.99 for a small box
or $49.99 a month for a large box
(US shipping and tax included)!

International purchasers are welcome, but shipping costs will be extra.

Introducing the Bookish Things Shop!

Introducing the Bookish Things Shop!

Okay, guys, I am sooooo excited to tell you about this today! For the past month-ish, I’ve been working on expanding my shop, and finally, the results are ready to show you!!

It started when we were on vacation. For us, “vacation” is really just the best brainstorming of the year. 😉 As we were walking on the beach and chatting, one of the topics was how to make even more cool stuff available in my store. I had tons of ideas…but of course, the problem is that I only have so much time. So I can’t just make everything I think of (never mind that I don’t have the skills, LOL). So I decided to look some things up. And next thing I know, I’m hours into browsing products by other individuals and artisans and I have found SO MANY that are a perfect fit!

And that’s what I’m about to show you! I’ve put together a ton of cool stuff. Some of it ties directly to one book of mine or another…some of it appeals to a general bookish audience. A few are especially for writers. I have some Christmas merch too, including new designs I just unveiled this week! A few highlights:

    • Journals and notebooks
    • Pens
    • Book lockets and pendant necklaces
    • Nature-themed jewelry and goodies
    • Christmas ornament
    • Book socks
    • Book light
    • Book earrings

AND…I also just added a wishlist button to the site! So if YOU are the book lover in your life and want to drop a few hints to your loved ones for the next holiday, I’ve totally got you covered. When logged in, you can create as many lists as you like, make them public or private, email them to people, you name it! (If you don’t log in, it will remember you for 30 days as long as you’re on the same device.)

So are you ready to see some of the cool new stuff?? I’ve divided them into a couple different categories–the images below are just a few of them! Check out the full shop HERE.

(All the old stuff is still there too, don’t worry! I’ve just built out new pages and taken new product images in some cases.)

Would you like to see a tie-in item that I don’t currently have? Just send me a note through the contact form with your suggestion, and I’ll see what I can do. =)

Bookish Tees & Totes

I’m excited to have a line of bookish T-shirts and tote bags available now! You can buy directly from my store or through my new shop on Etsy! (The Etsy store is set up to support international shipping, so if you have a non-US address, this is the best option.)

Happy Reading and Enjoy Summer!!!

Announcing Tote Bags!

Announcing Tote Bags!

Actually, I’m not just announcing totes, I’m announcing a whole cute little division. 😉 Bookish Tees and Totes will soon be a store on Etsy as well (once I get lovely photos taken) and for now directs to the T-shirt page on my website. Y’all have already been introduced to my Codebreakers T-shirts…I’ll be adding general bookish tees as well, not specific to my books, and–as the subject line suggests–TOTE BAGS!

Right now I have 6 bag designs–the 4 Codebreaker ones you’ve already seen on t-shirts, and two bookish ones, which read:

It’s Not That I Have TOO MANY BOOKS
Saved the World / Fell in Love / Won the War / Beat the Bad Guy / Lived Happily Ever After
All of these tote bags are and will remain

(I do still have the Library card tote bag available as well, which is a higher priced item–I’m down to a couple of these in stock and will not be ordering me, so when they’re gone, they’re gone.)

Also, do note that t-shirts are now all on the same 3 colors:
Raspberry, Aqua, and Banana
What? Book-Themed T-Shirts??

What? Book-Themed T-Shirts??

Okay, y’all, I am SO EXCITED about this one. =) We’ve been tossing around the idea of T-shirts forever but have never actually put it into reality. Last week, though, I decided it was high time I actually put some cotton behind my ideas. 😉 So I’m excited to announce the arrival of Codebreaker T-Shirts!

Here’s How It Works

Right now, they’re set up for pre-order in my store, with a release date of February 10. That date is rather randomly chosen and could shift either direction–the actual deciding factor of when a shirt will go into production is when that design reaches 10 orders (enough to justify buying the screen to print them from). But order now, and you won’t be charged until/unless the shirts are made!
There’s also a pre-order sale going on to encourage those initial 10 orders. 😉 Regular pricing will be $19.99 for XS-XL (2XL $20.99 and 3XL $21.99), but from now until February 10, prices start at $14.99!

The Shirts

Right now I’m only offering 1 shirt style–a V-neck, super-soft, short-sleeve fitted tee that’s 60% cotton and 40% polyester jersey. I have one of these already, and I can assure you that it’s a great shirt! Each design comes in 3 color choices, and I’m offering sizes from XS-3XL. (These are fitted, so they’re a bit snugger than a non-fitted shirt. If you like a looser fit, go up a size.)

The Designs

I’m starting with my newest books, of course. So currently, the designs being offered are all #TheCodebreakers. Here’s what we have…

18. It’s The Number of Love.

Because the question “What’s The Number of Love?” actually has an answer. 😉
 Available in red, purple, and indigo.

Black Heart

Pilot wings and the title our hero hides behind… 
Available in olive, mint, and lavender


Our heroine says she doesn’t need a guard dog. Our hero’s reply? “Woof.” 
Available in grey, yellow, and aqua

Hero or Villain. Try to Choose the Right One, Will You?

Based on the advice our hero got from his brother that he just can’t shake.
Available in turquoise, raspberry, and peach
Have an idea for another quote for a shirt, for these or another of my books?
Fill out the form on this page on my website to submit it!
It could very well end up on a future shirt. 😉
Coming soon: general bookish, reader-love designs!
