5 Bookish Accessories You Can't Live Without

by Sara Voigt (@meaningfulmadness)

You know you are bookworm when you have to prioritize your bookish accessory purchases. Book darts, bookmarks, book lights, oh my! Today, I am bringing you a list of 5 bookish accessories you can't live without. Let's get started, shall we?

The small, but mighty Book Darts. Book darts eliminate the need for highlighting, marking, post-it noting, all the things we do to note an important passage, quote, or sentence in a book. Simply grab a book dart and slip it on your page. The design ensures that you will know exactly what specific line of the page spoke to you.

Boomarks. That's right, you heard me. Bookmarks have been around for a long time, but gone are the days that you have the same puppy, cat, or <insert cute animal here> as everyone else. These days you can use bookmarks to flaunt your personal style. Snarky comments? Check. Snarky comments with some spicy profanity? Check. (Note: Don't look at that last link if profanity is not your thing. Really. Don't do it.) Bookmarks that fit snugly on the corner of your book? Check. Personalized bookmark? Check. Bookmarks of favorite pop culture characters and/or book characters? Check and check. So, you get the picture. The bookmark world is your oyster.

Page Anchor. What the heck is a page anchor, you say? A little bit more expensive that other bookish accessories, page anchors are high quality bookmarks--to me they seem more like a paperweight--that hold your book open for reading. If you are reading big books or doing academic reading and annotation, this may just be the thing for you.

A Book Embosser. Is a book embosser absolutely necessary for a bookworm? No. Is it a super fun way to mark your most prized books? For sure. If you have an extensive library that you often lend out to friends, what better way to make sure there is no mistaking where to return it? Plus, it is so satisfying to perfectly emboss a page. Am I right?

Rechargeable Book Light. You know you want to read anytime of day or night, so a book light is a must. This rechargeable light lasts up to 60 hours. What I like about it is that it has different light settings so that you can adjust the brightness to your personal preference. A book light is a must for traveling and for reading in bed when your significant other is sleeping. A book light can be a reading life changer!
