Booklicious: Out of Print Coasters

January 31, 2012


You guys, I am so tired right now. It's 9 p.m. the night before this post will go live, and all I can think about is burrowing into my duvet and letting my 10-ton eyelids slam shut. This has nothing to do with coasters, obviously, but everything to do with what will now follow.

Literary coaster set from Out of Print Clothing (they also make these!): $20
Eight water-resistant coasters. Vintage book-cover designs. Handy book-inspired storage case that turns each coaster into a page. Lovelovelove.

Now, to bed!

I bought these just last week! They're super nice. Good quality. I'm totally pleased about them.

Awesome to hear! It's always disappointing when the real thing doesn't live up to your expectations, but Out of Print seems to put out great products — I can vouch for the quality of their shirts.

I have the Darwin t-shirt. Very pleased with that too. (And with Darwin. That dude was pretty okay.)

Curiousity: which one did you buy?

I bought the Great Gatsby shirt. Confession: I had to immediately sell it to a coworker, though, as the measurements apparently didn't take slim-but-busty into consideration, and I didn't want to pay double shipping just to buy and return it. So I can't speak to its longevity – though I can ask its current owner, just in case any readers are truly interested.

This is pretty much the most awkward comment I've ever posted.

Seriously, that's your most awkward? A t-shirt didn't fit your boobs quite right? This is the internet! You're going to have to be into furries or multi-camera sitcoms if you want to gbe in the running for awkward on the internet.

I'm British - even hugging makes us tense. Also, my boobs did things to that shirt that would have required librarians to rethink the book's category in the Dewey Decimal System - it wasn't that I was flipping my hair over the life-ruining experience of not fitting into a size 6. But hey, if tales of my unsuccessful attempts to fit into hipster-proportioned lit-inspired clothing is what it takes to make me rich (or make a single dime off this blog), then I'll try on all the ill-fitting clothing it takes.

Ha - I have a dear friend who's a Brit and sometimes I hug her just to mess with her. She HATES that. Brits are weird.

Oh, this is your blog? I didn't even realize. Nice blog! I added you to my feed a couple weeks ago. I like stuff about books - coasters, weird shelves, all that stuff you often post about. (I mean, I like actual books too, but I talk about those over on Goodreads.)

And, yes, awkward boob stories will almost certainly make you rich.
