I might be alone on this one, but I have never been a fan of personalized license plates. Of course your idea for the most awesome personalized plate sounds cool in your head, but the only people who ever see it are other drivers (like me) who won’t get it most of the time.
However, one day while I was driving to work, I saw the license plate that made my feelings about personalized plates do a total 180. Are you ready for it? The license plate read “GR8 GTSB.” Isn’t that amazing?!
Celebrating books on license plates is personalization I can get behind, and seeing that license plate inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby inspired me to think of other book titles that could be put on a license plate and look so boss with these bookish car accessories! Here are some of the ideas that popped in my head, because it’s really hard to make book titles work when you’re limited to 8 characters.
