16 Fabulously Bookish Literary Scarves

If I could, I would wear a scarf year-round. I like the way they look, I like the way they feel, I like being able to pull a bit of fabric up over my face if there’s a cold breeze or unpleasant smell (or if I need to hide my identity) (that has never happened but it could). Scarves are just so useful! They protect your neck and décolletage from the elements! They look good! You simply cannot have too many scarves. And the best scarf is a literary scarf. Here are 16 of the best literary scarves.
