To celebrate Book Riot’s  first birthday on Monday, we’re running our best 50 posts from our first year this week. Click here for the running list. 

Editor’s Note: Brenna has collected her favorite picks from the first year of Book Fetish. Enjoy, kids


1. Book Table: Designer Lisa Finster has created custom coffee tables that doubles as a bookcase to house your favorite books. By cutting precise spaces for each book, Finster has given a whole new meaning to coffee table books.

2. Postcards from Penguin: Everyone loves a Penguin Classics cover. The publisher released a set of postcards that feature 100 different images of Penguin cover art, all in one box.

3. Book sets from Juniper Books:  Customizable book sets by Juniper Books; these special edition collections will brighten up any bookshelf.

4. Bookish bobby pins: These bobby pins make for a super cute accessory for any book lover.

5. Typewriter laptop sleeve:  It’s not quite stealth but at the end of the day this is a pretty cool way to protect your laptop.

6. Newspaper nails: Create this look with regular nail polish, rubbing alcohol and a newspaper.

7. “Nerd” bookends: The folks at Knob Creek Metal Arts have created a collection of handmade metal decorative items and their bookends are not to be missed.

8. Book rug: Artist Pamela Paulsurd has crafted a rug made out of recycled book spines. (via Recyclart)

9. Scrabble pillows: A nice addition to a home library or reading room from Etsy.

10. Great Drinkers Shot Glasses – Author Edition: This set of shot glasses celebrates the great literary figures who knew how to throw down the booze.
