I have an OCD when it comes to books and there are a lot of types to my OCD. One of them is my fussiness about book covers. I hate my covers getting creased or dirty and dog-ears, they make me cry.

Particular about keeping my books pristine, I’ve been covering my books since I can remember. But keeping a book safe and clean aren’t the only reasons why I cover a book. There are those cheeky books with extremely naughty covers I read at times and I don’t want people to know about too, and covers are great for covering that up. 😀

I’ve used newspaper since way back to make for a simple cover for my books. Newspaper is great but it has it’s issues, like durability and reusability. Looking for other ideas, here’s 7 book covers I found, that look great, do the job and do a little extra.

10 Cool Bookmarks for Book-Lovers

I’ve had a thing for bookmarks since I was a child. Come to think of it almost every book reader would have used bookmarks before the advent of e-readers. It was the only way to keep track of progress.

Well, not true, there are those who will fold the page edge or dog-ear it to mark their spot (I cannot verbalise well enough my annoyance at this). And there are also those who will pick anything around them – a piece of newspaper, a laundry bill, a bottle label – to use as a marker (I am occasionally guilty of this).

But the inveterate reader is usually crazy about bookmarks and even has a favourite one. I’ve lost track of the bookmarks I have bought over the years and I know I will keep buying them because just like I can’t say no to adding books to my TBR, I can’t resist collecting bookmarks. 😀

Keeping with the spirit of hoarding bookmarks here are 10 more cool bookmarks you would want to get.

Bookends hold up books on a shelf and make sure they don’t fall over or off the rack. But they can be more than that, they can be pieces of art, collectibles you want to treasure.

Here are 10 bookends from my ‘I have to get this’ list. A collection of amazing designs and wacky styles in something as simple as a bookend.

The first three things that came to my mind were – bookshelves, bookmarks and bookends. If I could, I would collect these, in large numbers. 😀 But since I can’t hoard tons of these I decided to do the next best thing. (more…)
