    This Tuesday we're here to help you become the hero of your own story – compete with your own custom-made cape!

    A nod to The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, this red over-shoulder cape is perfect for the heroine who’s saving the day on her own terms. With a comfy tied closure, this cape sits well on all body types without catching around the neck. Get ready to don on a cape that even Edna Mode will approve of!

  • Editor's Note: Because bookish leggings and tights are never out of style, we're bringing back this post. Originally posted on 10/21/2015.

    “It’s better to be happy in leggings than sad in jeans.” – the Tumblr community

    It’s a basic fact of life that tights and leggings are better than any other pant, because what other pant cradles your legs in soft, warm fabric that makes you feel fashionable AND like you’re leaving the house in pajamas? We rest our case.

    But what’s cooler than legs encased in coziness? Legs encased in bookish coziness. We’ve rounded up some awesome pieces so you can stylishly rock the map of Westeros on your booty, if you’re so inclined. 

  • ‘Tis the season to get crafty! The holiday season is the perfect time to get creative, whether it’s with decorating, baking, hand-making gifts, or even just hand-wrapping them with a new spin. For bookworms, it’s also a great time to show your love of the written word and do something with those books you are waiting to upcycle. Whether you are trying to add a subtle literary touch or go all-out for a specific series, we’ve got the perfect alternative wrapping ideas for you.

  • Happy book birthday to Cat Castles by Carin Oliver! To celebrate the book’s release, we’re sharing some exclusive downloadable decals to add holiday cheer to your own cat castle. Pick up a copy of the book and personalize your cat’s new habitat with a string of lights, icicles, snowmen, and pine trees! Pro-tip: the lights and icicles are tile-able so you’re able to make a continuous string.

    You can find the PDF here. Enjoy!

  • Warning! This post contains images of books that have been recycled into crafty decorations, which some readers might find disturbing. If you can’t stand the thought of a book being torn apart for decorative purposes, you may not wish to go on.
