The Best Coffee Mugs for Book Lovers (The Best of Book Riot)

Much of the good ship Book Riot is off at Book Expo America this week, so we’re running some of our best stuff from the first half of 2013. We’ll be back with reports from BEA next week and our usual array of new book-nerdery.


Wake up, fuel up, and READ ALL THE BOOKS after you’ve caffeinated with these awesome mugs for book lovers. More to recommend? Drop a link to your favorites in the comments.
