Get Lit

As in “literature.” I don’t understand people who say they don’t read. I get so much enjoyment out of it that I want everybody to like it. There are books out there for everyone, on just about any topic you can think of. Some authors are better than others (and don’t we love to argue about that), and getting recommendations based on people or topics you’ve previously read is a great way to find new stuff.

It’s said that there are only seven basic stories in fiction, yet look at how much has been done with them. Authors still come up with original characters, settings, or perspectives. The U.S. Library of Congress has sixteen million books (not counting other media such as music or film), and there are more than 300,000 original titles published every year in the U.S. alone.

If you’ve ever wanted to contribute to that number, you’re in luck! November is National Novel Writing Month. Participants try to complete a 50,000 word manuscript in thirty days, either as a whole novel or a big chunk of a novel to be finished later. And what keeps you alert and energetic while writing? Coffee! Check out these book mugs.

1. Building Blocks

Correct grammar is very important for clear communication. You don’t want people to stop reading your book because they’re confused. Other grammar mugs are here.

2. Non-Fiction

I’ve seen user manuals that would qualify as novels just from word count. Technical writers are usually forgotten about, but their work is just as important.

3. Own It

There is absolutely nothing wrong with loving literature for its own sake.

4. The More You Know

Being able to answer weird or obscure questions is very satisfying, especially when people ask “Why do you know that?”

5. Shakeswho?

From “Beowulf” to Chaucer to Donne to Swift {deep breath} to Shelley to Dickens to Kipling to…

These are just a few of the bookish mugs we stock. Getting one for everybody in your writing group or reading club? Remember that U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
