So last week the wonderful Brad from Gone Reading asked if I wanted to check out and review a few of their products. If you haven't been on their website yet- they are a website haven for bookish people. They have bookish shirts, action figures, toys, stationary, gifts, and a TON more!
I love how much fun stuff they have for readers.
When Brad asked me what I might want to review from the site, I told them to surprise me- and surprise they did:
I got some awesome stuff!
This Edgar Allan Poe lunchbox is full sized (not one of those mini ones) and is made of metal. It is so fun! It has different pictures on each side (even on the long sides) and is very well made! It would be such a fun lunch box for a book nerd (or even fun to just display or to use as a gift box!)
Inside the lunch box was another surprise!
So what does Edgar Allan Poe smell like? Really really strong "Poepurri". Just a friendly hint- if you are gonna take a whiff of this- don't stick your nose directly on it.... I may or may not have gagged. It is a pleasant scent- a generic potpourri scent... but I am pretty sure I inhaled part of the air freshener when I sniffed it- WHEW! So, a little goes a long way with how far open you cut the plastic wrapping.
The last thing that I got from the lovely people at Gone Reading was a "Take me to your Reader" shirt. This shirt is well made, and is a key lime color without looking neon. I am surprised at how nice the quality is- I sometimes doubt shirts that you buy online (I have had a bad history with Top Chef and Kitchen Nightmares shirts for past presents). The only downsize- I asked for the wrong size! I usually wear a XL in Hanes and other "printed" T-shirts. These run a teeny bit smaller than Hanes or other shirts (like the tees you can get from AC MOORE or Michaels). So be sure to check measurements before you order- they go up to a 3XL - seriously, how awesome is THAT!
So what does this shirt not fitting mean?
I AM GIVING IT AWAY! Want a chance to check out the quality of this shirt- it is super simple- head over to the Gonereading.com/ website and and pick out what you would love to buy for yourself or get as a gift. Then come back and let me know what you picked! Fill out the Google Doc below and you are set! Only one entry per person- no tweeting, no following- just a simply entry! US only please (sorry, shipping is brutal!) Disclaimer: I never tried this shirt on- just held it up to me... so fear not, it hasn't been worn! It would fit a size L- XL (who isn't smuggling cantaloupes under her shirt like me ha ha )
(Contest ends at 11:59pm on July 15th. Winner will claim via their chosen method within 24 hours. 13+only, US only)
Thank you so much to Brad and Gonereading.com for sharing all of these fun items to review!
