Wearable Puns: Sport a Book Bag, Old Sport!


I absolutely love my Book Messenger Bag and Book Billfold from ThinkGeek 🙂

One way to show off your love of books is through your accessories. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received over my “Book Bag” that my husband bought me for Christmas. I use the messenger bag in the picture above as my school bag, and my students love a good book pun just as much as I do (bless their little literary hearts). I’ve received the “of course you have a bag that looks like a book” from many a colleague, and I just smile and take the compliment with pride.

So I figured I would share my love of bookish bags and find some other great options if you want to sport a book bag of your own.

  1. The Book Messenger Bag and the Book Billfold are both from the geniuses over at ThinkGeek. Here’s a magical picture of the cute billfold that I use as a clutch…if only it had a wand holder…20160329_161743-01
  2. I know some of you may think this is sacrilege, but I can’t help but fall in LIT & LOVE with these beautiful hand-crafted real book clutches from Bagsy Me First!

  3. Here is another Etsy option if you feel like getting a real book bag from Bookarelli. I’m obsessed with the Harry Potter one!il_570xn-822290075_be6kil_570xn-825509202_62cw
  4. If you’re looking for a more casual, indie vibe, check out this subtle book purse from Modcloth!5f3b9b3ba67f0debef7e1a13729124d2

  6. This Apothecary Book from British Designer Lisa Angel has to be one of my favorites 🙂disaster-designs-apothecary-mini-book-bag-o21a7079-472x472
