And now for a little more about Literary Book Gifts, from Melissa.

When and why you started it?

I started Literary Book Gifts earlier this year as a way to combine my love of literature and design. I think that great books are meant to be shared and it seemed like a great way to spread awareness about books and reading in general through design. Displaying vintage designs of books and their covers on shirts and tote bags is a great way to get people talking about books.

Why classic novels?

I love classics. Some of my favorite reads have been classic novels, such as Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Classic novels are appreciated and read by a huge range of people which makes them great for an online store that can have many sizes and colors to choose from.

Literary Book Gifts sells totes and t-shirts for a number of different classic novels, so if the ones I've chosen for Halloween aren't really your (tote) bag, perhaps you'd prefer Peter Pan, Black Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Les Misérables, or any other the many other classic novels featured. Do browse through the online shop for something that better suits your tastes, and don't forget to use ONCEUPONABOOKCASE20 at check out for your 20% discount!

So what do you guys think? I'm quite partial to the Dracula T-Shirt and the Edgar Allan Poe Tote! Anything here catch your eye? Do you think you'll be buying anything? Let me know!
