Shopping for the Bookworm: Marcel Proust Edition

“For a long time I used to go to bed early. Sometimes, when I had put out my candle, my eyes would close so quickly that I had not even time to say “I’m going to sleep.” And half an hour later the thought that it was time to go to sleep would awaken me; I would try to put away the book which, I imagined, was still in my hands, and to blow out the light; I had been thinking all the time, while I was asleep, of what I had just been reading, but my thoughts had run into a channel of their own, until I myself seemed actually to have become the subject of my book: a church, a quartet, the rivalry between Francois I and Charles V.”-Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way

  1. Oh I loved the quotes! The Scrabble pendant is adorable. You always find the most unique lit gifts. I still treasure my Walt Whitman paper doll. He needs a few more outfits, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks! I decided to change it up for this one. I might do the quotes again. I love lit gifts, so I just curate this section with things I want for myself. I’m glad that Walt Whitman has a nice home with you. If you find or make more outfits for him, you’ll have to post them on your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
