Books Now!

News and reviews from around the corner to across the world



BOOKS NOW! will be going on vacation until mid-January, but I wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2014 before I fly off.

Thank you for supporting this blog and for your interest in all things literary. From humble beginnings in April 2013, Books Now! has grown to a readership of over 400, which is fantastic and very gratifying. I can’t wait to see what next year has in store. In the meantime, here are a few gift ideas if you’re still stuck for the book lovers in your life…..


Out of Print is a 27-year-old clothing company that sells t-shirts featuring vintage book covers, from Origin of the Species to Lolita. What makes this company special is that for every t-shirt sold, they donate a book to a community in need.


 In the Library scent (I kid you not…..) The description reads: “In the Library is a warm blend of English Novel, Russian & Moroccan Leather Bindings, Worn Cloth and a hint of Wood Polish.”

board game

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night Board Game. Each card gives you the opening lines to a famous novel, and you must identify the name of the book. It’s suited for all levels of literature lovers.

Book Cake

Book Cake for the sweet toothed.


Tile Coaster for procrastinators.

And finally……

book thongs

Book thongs/flip-flops –  never go anywhere without taking your books with you.

Be safe and I’ll see you in the New Year…….

  1. Have a very Merry Christmas, with thanks for your terrific blogs.


  2. Happy Christmas! That boardgame looks fab! I’ve never seen that before!

  3. Have a great holiday – I look forward to a report on what you read when you return. (Not full reviews if you don’t feel like it, but a little list would be great!)

  4. Happy Christmas to you. I went right off and ordered the dark and Stormy Night game for a relative!
