The Literary Shopaholic: Issue One

‘The Literary Shopaholic’ is a sporadic feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I highlight some of my favourite literary-themed items. From bookmarks to bookends, purses to posters and everything in between, I’ve selected a few things that will be at the very top of my shopping list this season!

Well, what do we have here? Could it be – A new feature?! As my friends and family can personally attest, if there’s one thing I love and have demonstrated an aptitude for (aside from reading), it’s shopping. So, when I began to brainstorm ideas for new features for Pop! Goes The Reader and I remembered how much fun I had putting together the Stuff Your Stocking event with Ginger, it seemed only natural to combine two of the things I love most in a series I’m extremely excited and passionate about. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get to it!

1) Arche-typewriter Socks ($7.99)

2) The Reading Dragon Mug by Stephanie Fizer Coleman ($15.00)

3) Reading Glasses Tote Bag by Caz King ($22.00)

4) Pencil Me In Flats ($97.99)

5) Penguin Bookends by Design Atelier Article ($47.35)

6) Living Proofread Ring Set ($9.99)

7) Kate Spade Expletive Bookmarks ($5.00)

8) Library Girl iPhone Case by Stephanie Fizer Coleman ($35.00)

9) Why Buy Anything Else? Print by Arielle Levin ($16.00)

So, what do you think? Would you be interested in seeing another Literary Shopaholic post in the future? Are any of these items now on your ‘must have’ list? Let me know in the comments – I would love to hear from you!

    1. Thank you, Jess! It was so much fun to put this post together, so it’s exciting to see it receive such a positive response.

      As someone who owns that exact pair of Jeffrey Campbell flats, I can personally attest that they are both comfortable and fashionable. I never fail to receive compliments when I wear them 😀

  1. Yes!!! I would LOVE to see this feature more often because as my family and friends can also attest to, I also LOVE shopping so it delights me so to see this pop up on my feed today. I immediately clicked on it! Everything on this is so adorable especially the phone case of the girl with stacks of books. I would love that, if I had an iphone. It also really reminds me of Matilda. And I love those Kate Spade bookmarks! Indigo’s collab with Kate Spade is literally my dream come true. I kind of fangirled a bit when I walked into Indigo for the first time and saw all those GORGEOUS Kate Spade products there. I even managed to get my hands on the eraser set and the notepad! They’ve been sitting there since December though and I haven’t even touched them once because they’re just too pretty to use!

  2. This feature is so much fun! I’m not great at shopping because I usually get tired and can never decide what to buy BUT I do love browsing around online and making wishlists. Please keep doing these – so much fun to see what you find! It takes all the work away from me having to go out and find stuff, so it’s basically perfect for my lazy shopping self 🙂

  3. The Literary Shopaholic is such a cute idea for a feature, Jen! Like you, I’m a big fan of shopping — especially for items that look this cute. I can’t even decide which item in this post is my favorite — and can’t even promise that I won’t wind up buying at least one thing on here at some point. I can’t wait to see more!

Hi! I’m Jen! I’m a thirty-something introvert who loves nothing more than the cozy comfort of home and snuggling my two rescue cats, Pepper and Pancakes. I also enjoy running, jigsaw puzzles, baking and everything Disney. Few things bring me more joy than helping a reader find the right book for them!
