That’s why I’ve decided to do a summer-ish project – with a bookish spin, of course. You see, when we finally get our two days of sunshine and warm weather here (I’m being sarcastic – sometimes we get three days of summer…), I’ll be ready to take my unique bookish ballerina shoes for a walk in the park!

DIY Friday – Bookish Cookies

DIY Friday - bookish cookies

Welcome to a special DIY Friday here at A Little Blue Book. Today I’ve put the glue and the scissors away and instead I’ve been throwing around flour and juggling eggs.

As some of you may know, Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon starts tomorrow, and I’ve been making bookish snacks for this epic event. Reading for 24 hours will require energy and lots of it, which makes these cookies the perfect treat. These little beauties are also perfect for bookish birthday parties, cosy tea parties and anytime you want to spoil yourself with a tonne of sugary goodness! Continue reading

DIY Friday – The TBR pile decider!Welcome to another bookish DIY Friday here at A Little Blue Book!

Today I am tackling a (1st world) problem which many bookworms struggle with: choosing a book from their often massive to-be-read (TBR) pile! The struggle is real, and I often just look at my pile, torn between 7 different books that I want to read asap.

Luckily I have found THE perfect (and most ridiculous) solution! I present ‘A Little Blue Book’s TBR Pile Decider’! Yours for only $99.99.
Just kidding 😜 Continue reading

DIY Friday! Luxury dust jackets that get your message across

Welcome to another DIY Friday for bookworms here at A Little Blue Book! Today I’m tackling an age-old problem for bookworms.

Let me set the scene for you:

You’re sitting somewhere in public, reading your book. Just as the protagonist is about to jump into a flaming underground hole filled with apocalyptic zombies to save the world (only armed with a stapler), someone interrupts you… And then keeps interrupting you, unaware that you are only a few lines from knowing the fate of the main character (and the world) – All because you’re “only” reading a book… Yes, some people see that as a legitimate excuse to interrupt you. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Continue reading
