11 Gift Ideas For Your Book Lover
Today I'm Bobbi

There are many of us out there, the book lovers, the people who absolutely adore books and cannot be in a bookstore for less than three hours. But what do you do when you do not know what to buy your book lover for Christmas? Here are a few things that they will love:

1. Gift cards

Get them a gift card from your local bookstore or from a larger bookstore like Barnes and Noble or Books A Million. (Not Amazon!)

2. Literature Posters

You can find these almost anywhere, just search Google! It's an even better gift if you get your book lover one with a quote of a book they love!

3. Bookish Candles

There are so many scents and colors, all of which I've found on various Etsy sellers. All with fun scents like "Christmas at Hogwarts", "Leather Bound Books", "Enchanted Library", and so many more!

4. Jewelry and Accessories

I can't tell you how many of these wonderful items I have seen and wanted, but I do not wear jewelry so they would just end up being trinkets on a desk. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, etc. There is so much out there!

5. Clothing

Once again, just search Google and you will get many pages filled with shirts, hoodies, leggings, etc. all of literature-inspired quotes or designs.

6. Other Accessories

Bags, phone and iPad cases, pillows, throw blankets, and so much more! I use Society6 personally for pillows and throw blankets.

7. Journals

Every reader I know has loved getting a journal to be able to write in, even if they are not a huge writer. It is a good go-to item!

8. Bookends

Fishbowls, dancers, animals, there are millions of different bookends out there. One of them has got to be something that your book lover likes!

9. Specialty Journals

Harry Potter coloring books, Wreck This Journal, 642 Things To Write About. All of these are similar to journals, but they have some kind of trick to them. Wreck This Journal you literally wreck the journal. I have so much fun with mine, definitely recommend.

10. Vinyl Figures

A lot of these guys are movie or television related, but some are from books too. The Harry Potter collection is from the books.


These are so simple. Plus you can personalize them, make them by hand, or buy really nice wooden bookmarks.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
