1. Five of my favorite bookish quotes printed out on white cardstock in various fonts:
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you know, the more places you'll go" ― Dr. Seuss
“And every book, you find, has its own social group--friends of its own it wants to introduce you to, like a party in the library that need never, ever end.” ― How to be a Woman, by Caitlin Moran
“I always order the banned books from a black market dealer in California, figuring if the State of Mississippi banned them, they must be good.” ― The Help, by Kathryn Stockett
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” ― Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, by J.K. Rowling
“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.”― C.S. Lewis
(Note: I have since read the book of essays by C.S. Lewis where I believe this last one is taken from. It seems wherever I first read it had the wording a bit off, but I'm leaving it for now. The message is the same regardless!)
2. Two illustrated quotes printed from Goodreads' monthly newsletter:
"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library." ― Jorge Luis Borges
"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities" ― J.K. Rowling
3. A copy of my UK Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone cover.
4. An illustrated postcard of The Elephant House, the cafe I visited in Edinburgh, Scotland where J.K. Rowling wrote parts of Harry Potter.
5. A print that came with my collector's edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
