Read Between the Lines. Or Read the Lines.

Here we are passed Black Friday and Cyber Monday and everything in between and I have yet to buy one gift.

If you are in a similar spot, Out of Print may provide a snappy stocking stuffer.  Journals, featuring the covers of some literary favorites, use the opening sentences of famous novels as "lines."

They're clever for coming up with them, you're clever for ordering them.  Here.

Great inspiration!
I have bought a shirt for one of my sons there!
I love literary minded things!
The journals are lovely!

I'm winning--I have acquired two small presents--but I bought one for myself!!! Good luck with shopping--it just doesn't seem like Christmas, yet. Mary

I especially like the Rockwell Kent illustration of Moby Dick. My surrogate grandmother used to pose for him in the 1930's. (Kent--not Moby)

My father used to have the happy habit of giving me first editions on my birthday. Doesn't get better.

And oh, those Rockwell Kent designs for Moby Dick. So good.

Had never heard of this place before. Just placed an order -- perfect gifts for a number of people on my list. Also, people should know that this also has a charitable component. A book is provided to a school in Africa for every item purchased -- the seven gifts I bought mean seven books for kids in Africa. Great concept!

Thank you so much, new to your blog from Joni at Cote de Texas! Just ordered a book for my daughter from your post ... Lovely and so exciting to find something new and different, and that gives back! Now, I have purchased my FIRST Christmas present! I too need to get busy!

This is the perfect gift for someone I know. I have never seen this before, so thanks for posting it. Hope there is still time to order one.
