Here are some sites that have some fun reading related items:

http://www.outofprintclothing.com

This site is worth visiting just for the slideshow of images of people reading when you first connect, but be sure to also click on “shop” and look at all of the t-shirts you can buy with covers of classic books like “The Catcher in the Rye”.

Just for fun, female readers can check out:

This is a site where members send in pictures of good-looking men caught in the act of reading books.  Don’t be put off by the name–there’s nothing objectionable on the site.     You can snap a pic of the man in your life reading and send it in as well.

If you like your clothing to reflect your love of reading, check out:

http://www.signals.com

Go to the site and enter “book t-shirts” in the search box in the upper right of the screen.   You can find many styles and sayings to show the world how you feel about reading.

Another site with an array of t-shirts, mugs, magnets and tote bags with reading-related themes.  My personal favorite is:  “I like big books and I cannot lie”.

And of course, there is always the store of the American Library Association:

Here you can find Celebrity Read posters–posters showing a variety of famous people reading their favorite book. The Jonas Brothers, Colin Farrell and Hugh Laurie are just a few examples.

Take a tour of some of the most stunning library buildings in the world.   It’s impressive to see and reminds us of the value that has traditionally been placed on literature and learning by the way in which books are housed.
