9 Bookish Clocks to Help Track Your Reading Time

I’ve always been fascinated by analog clocks. I love watching the hands move, I love hearing the tick-tock in the background of everyday life, and I love getting a peek at the gears inside. But you don’t have to be a clock fanatic (just a book fanatic, ha) to appreciate these bookish clocks that’ll count the hours you spend reading.
