Belt Publishing’s illustrated, large-print book, “Folktales and Legends of the Middle West” by Edward McClelland is a series of eloquently-phrased stories for campfires. Enjoy reading aloud with family in the orange cast of logs burning in the fireplace. The large type size is perfect for all ages and reading abilities!


Liz Sabo microsuede throw pillows make reading nooks cute and cozy. The super soft cloth is screenprinted with a variety of playful prints, creating an ideal atmosphere for indulging yourself in a good book. We recommend investing in a matching set… that way you can read with a friend!


Show us your favorite classic and we’ll show you the corresponding “Well Read” book spine letterpress print by Letterpress Jess. English majors rejoice: there are five prints in the series, including titles by Dumas, Vonnegut, Bronte, Orwell, and Shelley… just to name few of our favorites.


What goes better with a day of reading than a hot cup of tea? How about a candle of a similar persuasion? Sweet Dish & darling’s Earl Grey soy wax candle is the perfect candle for turning a stressful day into a relaxing dream. A prelude of charred grapefruit and lemon notes lures you in, while secondary notes of bergamot and black tea round out the end. Our favorite part is the wood wick, which crackles like a tiny campfire. Pick from a 6 oz or 16 oz amber jar container.
