I recently read a shocking fact. Amazon has reported that the sales of their electronic books readers outnumbered their sales of actual books. Wow.
As an avid reader, I'm saddened to hear this! There is nothing like the feel of a book. I love to see font choices, experience the feel of the paper and the smell of the pages.
So, just to inspire you to go out an actually buy a beautiful book, here's a collection of gorgeous book accessories.
The Tempest - leather bookmark from immortal longings - $4.99
Dreaming Ophelia bookplate set from Stiletto Heights - $6.00
Reader's Diary from Green Chair Press - $10.00
Custom Initial Bookmark from Arete - $7.00
