Big snow is a-coming this weekend! Well, maybe. The meteorologists cannot decide whether we are in for 2.5″ or 23.5″…no joke! Regardless of the outcome, this wait-and-see situation has me dreaming of snuggling on the sofa with my beasties, a good book (or three), and a bottomless supply of warm beverages. With that in mind, I’ve curated a handful of cozy, bookish items for this Snowbound Edition of Shopping for the Bookworm. Enjoy!
Quick! A blizzard’s on the way, let’s gather some essential bluestocking supplies!
Loose leaf tea:
Decadent hot chocolate:
Eight timeless books:
And a few other ideas:
*Special treats for your furry friend(s)*
*Extra-thick moisturizer or lotion*
*A bottle of bubbly to shake up the hot drink monotony*
*Homemade gingerbread cake* (I use the recipe from A Christmas Carol Cookbook)

“Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person.”–Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
P.S. There’s delicious chai tea in the Little Women mug.
Lady at the Tea Table by Mary Cassatt, 1883:
My sweet momma’s birthday was last week, so on Friday I took her and my grandma to afternoon tea at Mozart’s Café.
A Cup of Tea by Lilian Westcott Hale for Collier’s Magazine, 1909:
I wish I could spend today drinking tea and reading books about awesome women. Alas!
The last few days have been pretty stressful, so on Saturday I popped in to the fabulous bakery that’s just around the corner from my day job. I saved this scrumptious scone for this morning’s breakfast. Between it, a cup of my fave tea, and a good book…I’m feeling a tad better.
