I know it is August. Before you come at me to inform me it’s summer and too early to talk about bookish fall decor, I’m here to say I know, I get it, and summer is my favorite season. BUT in a world where there are far fewer things to indulge in without shame or guilt, let’s back off and let folks who are ready to fall in love with all things autumn do just that.

Plus, if you’re going to order bookish fall decor, you want it to arrive in time for the season. Trust me when I say you’ll see some Halloween costume ideas appearing soon, too.

Whether you’re in full pumpkin spice mode or want to plan how you’ll add some autumnal touches to your home, you’ll want to click, save, and purchase some of this fun fall bookish decor.

Note that these items are from Etsy, but beneath the featured images, I’ve linked to some other great fall and Halloween collections that you can also find some sweet bookish goods within. ‘Tis the season.

If you’re looking for even more options, you’ll want to check out these spots:

Michael's advertisement, featuring bookish decor.

Michael’s always delivers on seasonal decor, and this year’s collection is packed with bookish fall goods. Snap up some fake books, cleverly used book pages, and, as peeped in one advertisement slide, a desktop replica card catalog.

Though this year’s collection of fall and Halloween goods at Target hasn’t gotten the same level of press as in previous years and it looks to have less bookish goods, you won’t want to miss perusing the online — and offline — options.

Image of At Home Halloween decoration collection.

Is At Home a little known gem or something I missed out on for years? My local always seems pretty empty and yet, it’s always a place that I know will come through when I have a specific home need. Their Halloween and Fall collections have some fun bookish flair options. In-store options may be different than what’s on the website.

Grandin Road is another sweet spot for Halloween goods especially. Pictured above are their vintage book boxes. Those and other bookish fall decor can be found on their website or if you’re in Ohio or Georgia, at their outlet shops.


You can find even more great literary fall decor here, as well as snap up some spooky bookmarks for your autumnal reads.
