A Non-Bookie Holiday Gift for the Bookish

I received a $25 gift card from HomeGoods & BlogHer to shop for a holiday gift and share my finds.

Every year when my husband's aunts, uncles and cousins come to visit for Thanksgiving, we eat, hang out, play games, spend time together- and shop, because, well, it's kind of fun. And while I do a lot of book shopping, sometimes I like to have little accessories to make my reading and relaxing time even better.

First of all, if I'm going to settle in with a good book, I need to be comfortable:
I found this great pillow at HomeGoods for $16.99. It matches my sofa nicely and it's very, very comfortable. But as anyone who knows me, knows well, I also love to bake and curl up with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea when I read. So I needed these, too:

I collect Christmas cups and mugs and thought this little matched set was adorable. At $3.99 each, they were also a great bargain.

Here I am enjoying my finds:

Now all I need is a book! I wonder where I can find one of those.
