This week’s Book Fetish is sponsored by What the Dickens?! by Bryan Kozlowski
Dickens penned close to five million words in his lifetime and possessed a vocabulary as wide and whimsical as his imagination.Culled from his fifteen classic novels and hundreds of short stories, What the Dickens?! is a literary romp through the twisty alleyways of the Victorian vernacular. Following the etymological trail of “fogle-hunters” in Oliver Twist, dining at a “slap-bang” in Bleak House, or taking care not to get “burked” in The Pickwick Papers, readers will be escorted through a linguistic tour of Dickens’s beloved world. The book will include 200 words alongside pithy commentary, and 30 duo-toned illustrations throughout.
Pippi Longstocking Watch: Part of their fairy-tale inspired line, Swatch has released a double wrapped watch to match the long pigtail braids of the famous ginger heroine.
Harry Potter Owl Shirt: You know Hedwig always wanted a Gryffindor scarf of her own.
Book Lover Totebag: Kinky.
Book Lamp: Is it a book? Is it a lamp? No! It’s a book lamp!
Bookshelf Shower Curtain: I know I’m not the only one that’s taken a book into the shower. But when your bathroom looks like a library, that’s not so weird anymore.
