My Favorite Bookish Mugs

Last week, my friend Jen from YABooknerd saw the Epic Reads mug post and created her own epic post about her favorite mugs which you can see here.  I got inspired and decided to show off a few of the great Librarian and Bookish mugs that I've either bought or been given.  It's not a HUGE collection, yet (which is probably good for my cabinets) but they do make me smile every time I drink out of them.

So, here we go! 

This one makes me giggle EVERY SINGLE TIME I USE IT!  It's so hilariously wrong.  If I ever actually heard someone try to use this pick up line I might vomit...and yet... it does make me laugh! 

Enough said. 

The mug I'm sure almost every Librarian I know owns.... somewhat ironic, and yet somewhat true.  I am a first-class Librarian and most days I am proud to be a public serving, friendly, book (we don't stamp anymore) checking out, softly politely spoken, helpful, well read Librarian... 

My giant (slightly stained!) Winnie-the-Pooh mug that is used every time I feel sick, too full, freezing cold, etc. and need a double cup of tea (or sometimes hot chocolate).  It keeps the giant vat o'liquid surprisingly warm for a long time and keeps me from having to get up too, too often... definitely a favorite mug. 

And, this one's not at all bookish, but my friends will know that I love it dearly nonetheless:

MY FAVORITE MUG EVAH.  EVAH. EVAH.  Can you tell how much I love it??  My sister-in-law, Shannon, and her fiance gave it to me and I LOVE IT.  See that little giraffe in there?  He peeks out as you drink your coffee, tea, whatever, and it is the coolest thing I've ever seen. LOVE. 

Do you guys have bookish mugs that you adore?


  1. My Kate Spade library books mug:

    1. SO cute! Might have to have someone buy me that for my birthday... LOL.

  2. I don't ever drink coffee. So I don't have very many coffee cups. Only for guests. I need to get some more cooler ones.
