Novel Ideas

November is a very bookish month, with three different celebrations of all things literary!

November 1st is Author’s Day, where you can enjoy the latest from your favorite wordsmith, or revel in being one. On the 3rd, we readers will definitely not come together to observe Book Lover’s Day, as we prefer being alone with our favorite page-turner. November is also National Novel Writing Month, an annual challenge to churn out a 30,000-word novel over the thirty days. Luckily, there are no rules about it having to be a good novel.

If your idea of the perfect weekend involves a quiet spot, a favorite book, and a full cup of coffee, check out these mugs!

1. Own It

High school is no fun for kids who prefer reading to sports, but it’s time to stand up and be proud.

2. Font of Wisdom

Whatever the question or problem, you can be sure someone else has tackled it before. Readers build up a vast storehouse of useful information.

3. Go Away, World

Sometimes the best way to cope is to put your problems on the back burner and dive into a different reality for a while.

4. The Secret to Success

If you can read, you can find out anything you need to know. If you can apply critical thinking to what you read, you’ll be unstoppable.

5. Which Bronte?

There is an unbelievable amount of literature out there, and everyone loves to argue about what constitutes a “classic” work.

6. Unsung Heroes

Often overlooked, usually underappreciated. Technical writers are tasked with breaking down very complicated information and presenting it in a friendly, easy-to-follow format.

7. Words Mean Things

You can always claim to be using the term ironically, but that just leads to an entirely different argument.

8. Count On It

If you have individual items, use “fewer.” If you have an undefined amount, use “less.” When in doubt, ask a pedant.

These are just a few of the literary mugs we stock. Have a book club? U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping, so gift the whole group!
