Gifts for Book Lovers!

If you come and visit my book blog, there are lots of chances you love books and book gifts!

So please read the following guest-post by Melissa, the founder of Literary Book Gifts. And at the end, she offers a very nice coupon code to you, my readers!

Literary Book Gifts was started based on my eternal love of literature, but also based on the characters, settings, and overall style of each novel. I started the company because I wanted readers of all ages to have a way to connect with each other on the shared mutual interest of books. Placing the novels and authors as designs on shirts seemed like such an amazing way to do this because it brings about the possibility of open ended discussion from simply wearing the shirt of your favorite novel!

Featuring some of literature’s greatest characters from Moby Dick to Sherlock Holmes there really is something for everyone in the collection! 

I’ll talk just a little about a couple of designs and items in the collection.

Book-End-T-ShirtBook End T-Shirt
This shirt is a fun one because it shows a part of books that not everyone thinks about but is always there. The words read The End, and the vintage style alludes to the fact that all books, even those from thousands of years ago always came to an end.

Every shirt comes in a wide variety of sizes and colors. Book lovers may have overlapping tastes, but bright blue shirt verses a plain white shirt suit quite different tastes in terms of apparel. This is why many of the women’s and men’s styles come in over 10 colors! Sizes are available in XS – 3XL for women and S – 5XL for men.


Headphone Tote Bag

Readers don’t just read from books. There is a huge community of people who prefer audiobooks, myself included. The Headphone Backpack is audiobook lovers everywhere!

Tote bags are made to last, with three great sizes to choose from, small, medium, and large!

Use this coupon code: WORDSANDPEACE20 for 20% off at Literary Book Gifts there is no expiry date!

Book review: The Word is Murder

The Word is Murder

The Word is Murder

(Hawthorne #1)

by  Anthony Horowitz

Genre: Mystery & Detective
Pages: 390

Author’s website


It’s hard to believe: I have already read and thoroughly enjoyed five books by Anthony Horowitz, and only talked to you about The House of Silk, on this video. This summer was totally crazy, so this could partly explain why I recently read two other mysteries by him and did not write about my experience. I actually wonder if a deeper reason could be that I was so stunned by the quality of the book that I didn’t know how to start reviewing it. I’m still very much aware my two-cents sound very poor to give you an idea of the greatness of The Word is Murder, but let’s try anyway.  Click to continue reading

Arsene Lupin

Eiffel Tower Orange

Yesterday, I explained to you how 2017 was a Sherlock Holmes year for me.  He seemed to pursue me even further, as the latest Classics Club spin, #16, fell on Arsène Lupin, gentleman-cambrioleur, a somewhat French equivalent to the detective adventures, as I explain below. I obviously read it in French, but present here the cover and the title in English: Arsene Lupin, Gentleman-Thief.
