10 Bookish Umbrellas for Your Rainy Day

You can never have too many bookish umbrellas.

It’s been an unseasonably rainy summer where I live; every other week has been a wet, humid, tropical nightmare. We’ve got umbrellas by each door, umbrellas in the car, umbrellas in my purse, umbrellas drying in the bathroom. In fact, if an umbrella’s not drying out somewhere, one of us is probably using it.

But all of those umbrellas are boring. So I started looking for cool, bookish umbrellas, and — although pickings were slimmer than I expected — I did find some pretty neat ones.

Check ’em out, because rainy days are great for just three things: reading, writing, and — when you absolutely have to go outside — accessorizing.

(Interested in comics-themed umbrellas? That post is here.)
