Mesmerizing Book GIFs for When You’re Too Stressed to Read

When my brain is going a million miles an hour, a book just won’t do. My eyes slide off the page and I am quickly back in my own mess of thoughts. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to indulge in my bibliophilia! I absolutely love gifs as an art form, and mesmerizing gifs manage to hypnotize my spiraling brain, at least for a minute. Plus, when they’re mesmerizing book gifs, it reminds me how much I love reading, which often leads to me successfully picking up a book! If you, too, like a calming/hypnotizing bookish gif, check these out:

More evidence that cats + coffee + books = calm.

This looks so cozy. And it suggests that corgis may be substituted for cats, if available.
