We all have the things we can’t leave the house without. Our phone, keys, wallet, sunglasses. For bibliophiles, the must have item is a good book. Two if you’re close to finishing the first one. Here’s the process I go through to find the perfect bag to put my things in.
- Pick up your favourite series. Preferably with more than three books. Don’t go overboard because ten is a little unrealistic. For me the series I go purse shopping with is the Percy Jackson and the Olympians boxed set. That’s five books. I wouldn’t recommend the Harry Potter books because they’re thick enough to account for about eleven books and need to be carried around in a trunk rather than a purse.
- Go to a store which sells purses. Doesn’t matter which one. I went to Marshalls for big cute purses for cheap. (I was not paid to say this btw). When my sister shops for purses she’s more of a Kate Spade kind of gal but she’s also not a big bibliophile so she only takes about two books with her.
- Find a purse you like that fits all the books you want in it. It may be hard, but unless you want to be caught unaware without a book, it’s the best course of action.
And there you have it, the best way to buy books. Bibliophile style.
