Are you the kind of person who can’t commit to something like a bookish sticker or a bookish patch because of the stress of finding the perfect spot for it to live? I love a good sticker, but I struggle with making a decision on where it goes, so I have a pile of great stickers that…I never get to see because I am too worried about being unhappy with placement. One solution for the anxious-about-commitment among us: bookish magnets. Pop one of those bad boys on a book cart or a fridge and move it around as much as you could possibly want.

I am a person who, when I choose my souvenir of choice, picks the magnet. It doesn’t necessarily need to be related to the place I’ve visited, but I love being able to actively use a thing all the time and take that walk down memory lane. The same is true for bookish magnets: I love looking at the ones I’ve collected and remembering what drew me to it or the story behind it. Gifting bookish magnets is fun, too: how easy to slide one into a birthday or holiday card or create a small stack of ’em for a full on gift. They’re small, portable, and useful. Plus, there are a billion styles, so no matter what kind of reading nerd you are, there is a bookish magnet out there for you.

Let’s take a look at some good ones.
