Being a booklover is about so much more than just reading (although that is the foundation of it all). It’s about loving bookshops and libraries. It’s about how we stack our shelves at home. It’s about where we read, who we discuss books with… Being a booklover is a lifestyle. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we’ve put together a few wonderful gifts and gadgets that any certified booklover will want – all from awesome Aussie retailers that need our support right now.
A Library made from Candles!

Canvas bags are perfect for booklovers, especially if they’re stopping off at the library on the way home. This stunning tote takes library bags to a new and eye-catching level.
