I like how from the sounds of that title I have a number of bookish items people have given me. In reality, it’s just one thing. I tend to ask for books more than bookish items, and according to the Buying Ban Challenge post list, books don’t count for this months topic. Probably for the best because I can barely remember which books were given to me and which weren’t.
So what’s this mystery gif?
The cute owl bookends!
Mum bought these for me sometime last year. She found them in a random two dollar store. They were surpsisingly expensive ($20 each!) but they’re adorable so it’s totally worth it. The owls have been tasked with holding up my immediate TBR pile at my uni rental house.
Another item which probably qualifies as a bookish gift is my big, black bookshelf.
This was my birthday present a couple of years ago because I was about to start piling books on the floor.
