Literary Stationery to Make Your Mail More Bookish

Everyone knows that the next best thing after book mail is bookish snail mail. Book Riot has rounded up a great list of literary stationery for all of your mailing needs, but we’re back with more bookish notecards and sets! So grab a pen and some stamps and get ready to send all your friends some book recommendations!


My favorite stationery find in recent years is the Card Catalog: 30 Notecards from the Library of Congress set! The notecards are facsimiles of actual cards for classics! Nerd out over the old-timey handwriting and typewriter printing! And the cute little box that, let’s be real, is probably the closest thing you can afford to an actual card catalog.

Check out these reading pun cards, for your bookish boo:
