The Bookworm's Haven

Mia. 17. Ravenclaw. Avid Reader. Communication + Management Major.

This is my book tumblr blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

Ideally, we lose ourselves in what we read, only to return to ourselves, transformed and part of a more expansive world — in short, we become more critical and more capacious in our thinking and our acting.

“Quiet” chair— a transportable book nook by the London-based studio TILT. Forget about Eames chairs, I would like one of these please. 



So I’m going off to college soon, and I thought it’d be best to reduce the size of my book collection. Being the off beat person that I am, these books were the best escape I could have. I’ve (of course) read every single one and loved them.

I know its books, not clothes or anything cool (well, I think they’re cool), but free stuff is free stuff.

So here are the rules:

  • I will pick a winner randomly. 
  • You don’t have to be following me. (But it’d be nice if you did)
  • Winner gets to choose any or all books from the collection.
  • If there are books left over after the person chooses, I will keep choosing random winners until every single book is gone.
  • Everyone chosen gets one free Strand Bookstore bookmark shown above. (where I’ve bought the majority of my books)
  • Everything will be delivered directly to all winners, free of charge via UPS. (Unless you live in NYC, then we can arrange a meet-up).
  • Likes and Reblogs all count. You can reblog it as many times as you want.
  • Winners will be chosen within the next month. 

I’m not expecting many people, but hopefully a couple avid readers who don’t mind taking a couple of these off my hands. Good luck!
