It’s the time of year we’re thinking about and preparing for the new year. Of course, for many of us, it’s also the time we’re picking out the perfect way to launch the new year of possibilities with the perfect wall or desk calendar. For book lovers, there are so many options available for the perfect literary calendars, and it seems there’s no time like the present to round up some of the excellent options out there.
Literary calendars range from daily boxed style to monthly wall style, as well as plenty of portable planners, and I’ve included a little bit of everything here. There are broad-ranging literary calendars, as well as more specifically themed calendars.
In other words: there’s something for every kind of reader.
