My Favorite Bookish Things: Handmade Book/Kindle Sleeves, Book Markers Pouches and Book Markers Made by Norma and our Mom Linda

November 14, 2020


Hello my friends! Today I am talking about my favorite bookish things and they can be yours too!! Norma has taken a turn from reviewing books and is now making book markers and managing her Etsy shop selling handmade bookish things that her and our Mom Linda are making. Christmas might be a bit of a challenge this year and it might be time to start thinking about gifts so I would like to share some of my favorite things you can find in their shop or have it custom made in any of the fabrics they have available for someone special on your Christmas list. Also I heard this year people are thinking of self gifting this year!! Use SISTERS20 at the checkout for 20% off. AND of course I am going to talk about books as well.

I chose this fabric to feature in their Etsy shop and I requested the book marker made to go with it. I use the book sleeve for my book or my iPad. Now about the books, I am currently reading Homegoing and I love it! It’s heartbreaking and eye opening and I can’t believe it has taken me so long to finally read it. I just finished and posted our reviews for Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy and we highly recommend it as one not to missed for thriller readers!!!

My favorite thing is my kindle sleeve. I love, love it and it goes everywhere I go!! Well I really don’t go out much right now. I do have a couple other ones that my Mom made me because I like to have chooses and options but this one is my go to one. I also have the same pattern in a book sleeve because I like things to match. I even try to match the book cover to my book sleeve. Norma made the book marker to go with the sleeves. I am currently reading The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai on my kindle and I love it too!! I also just finished but haven’t reviewed Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi. It’s a is a powerful, raw, intimate and deeply layered story that explores love and grief experienced by a Ghanaian family in Alabama.

I keep Norma pretty busy making me book markers and I love all the book markers she makes. So I have a bit of a collection of them now and love the bookmarker pouches my Mom makes to keep them safe in. Here are some now available in their  Etsy shop 

This one here is one I have with a few of my book markers I have collected.

Some book sleeves they have available and many more are in their Etsy shop

I hope you all get a chance to check out their shop and see what other great items they have for yourself or a gift! Use SISTERS20 at the checkout for 20% off.

  1. Beautiful! My daughter just sent me a book sleeve that she found on Etsy, and I love it. I love the idea of a bookmark pouch — I may need to treat myself. Thanks so much for sharing the link and the discount code!

    Made with the loving hands of Mama no wonder you love! Maybe you need to send me the link B! I think when you have these special book marks and pouches for them it’s just so sweetly organized. Norma does so well with the characters and the quotes!
    I love buying from a person rather than a big operation company, the product is so pure 💗
    I love that you gals have grown this into something unique and beautiful!
