Are you a nerd if you enjoy reading, or are we past that as a term of belittling and have instead embraced it with pride? Whatever the case, the fact of the matter is if you love reading, you’re both a nerd and a badass. As such, chances are you’re proud of being a book lover and don’t mind displaying that pride wherever you go. You won’t want to miss these badass book stickers for reading nerds.
Find below an array of great bookish stickers, ranging from library- and bookstore-themed to fun, vintage, and otherwise humorous takes on the reading life. Pop these stickers on your laptop or its case, on any notebooks you’re using (or blank notebooks you’re not using), your water bottle, or anywhere else a little flair might be necessary.
I’ve not included stickers that are specific to a book or an author, as I wanted to encompass as broad a love of books and reading as possible. You can find some additional library stickers, as well as some awesome Shakespeare stickers, in these posts.
Who says stickers are only for kids? The fact is maybe we enjoy them even more as adults because we don’t encounter them as frequently as we should.
