What a blessing it is to love books – Elizabeth von Arnim – Tote bag


SKU: N/A Category:


When Elizabeth von Arnim wasn’t pottering about in her garden, she was reading books. Or perhaps it’s the other way around?

This tote bag is the perfect library-lover’s accessory. It is made of 100% cotton with cross-stitching on the handles so that you can really stuff it full of books… Or baguettes. Or both.

Here’s the delicious quote in full from The Solitary Summer by Elizabeth von Arnim:

What a blessing it is to love books. Everybody must love something, and I know of no objects of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden. And how easy it would have been to come into the world without this, and possessed instead of an all-consuming passion, say, for hats, perpetually raging round my empty soul! I feel I owe my forefathers a debt of gratitude, for I suppose the explanation is that they too did not care for hats.

Be thankful you do not have a mania for hats!

.: 100% cotton
