Custom Pet Bookmark

Brielle’s Gallery – $19.50

This shop takes a picture of your dog and turns it into a custom bookmark – even the tail! The bookmark is laminated for added durability and has a magnet to keep your spot securely.

Wooden Dog Bookmark


Everose Woodcraft – $11.99

“All I need is a book in my hand and a dog by my side” could pretty much be my motto in life. Although it is two dogs by my side!

Fabric Dog Print Book Cover

book cover

Fabrics Accents Designs – $15

I get most of my books from the library and I am also quite prone to spills, drops, general messiness. Enter the book cover! No more covering your books in paper grocery bags (did I just date myself so bad?), Fabrics Accents Design makes these beautiful book covers to protect anything from a small mass market paperback to a large hardback (five sizes are available). Plus – they are washable!

Note: This shop is taking a break now but will be back for the holidays. Bookmark this page!

Dog Lives Book Sleeve

StoryHero – $19.99+

I’m not alone in this right? This sleeve comes in 3 sizes and you’ll find one to fit most books (and some e-readers as well).

I can not stand when an animal is harmed in a story and won’t read anything if I know it’s going to happen. If you feel the same, there is even a website called – Does the Dog Die where you can search whatever you are reading or watching to make sure you can finish it!

Padded Book Sleeve

book pouch

Harper and Press – $17+

Prefer to feel that cover against your fingertips? This book sleeve protects your book from bag gunk (come on, I know I am not the only one who has spilled lotion inside their purse!). It is lightly padded for added protection of pages and covers and comes in three sizes.

Read More Books, Pet More Dogs Tee

tee shirt

Westside Chi Chis – $20

What fantastic advice! This shop also donates a portion of their sales to rescue.

This tee comes in 6 sizes and there is also a blue one! If you buy them both together, get free shipping!

Dog Glasses Stand

glasses stand

Everose Woodcraft – $47.99+

While not every reader wears glasses, if you do, this stand is a must! I am always losing my glasses and I need a dedicated place for them. I am obviously partial to the German Shepherd one but there are many breeds – Cocker Spaniel, Corgi, Husky to name a few or you can have a custom one made!

Some Girls Are Just Born With Reading and Dogs in Their Soul Print


Miri Vintage – $14.35+

It’s me, I’m some girls. I have been reading since I was 4 and have barely put a book down since. There’s not much that I love more than curling up with the dogs on couch and getting lost in a story!

Coffee & Books & Dogs & Naps Candle


The Black Dog Candle Shoppe – $25+

One of my best friends just got me this candle for my birthday and I had to include it! Perfect for some cozy reading ambiance! You can choose from 18 scents (mine is lemon squares) and a black, frosted or white jar. It is a Michigan made product and it’s soy.

Dogs & Books Tote

dog tote

Barkley and Wags – $25+

I am just such a sucker for tote bags! I mean, there’s just so much you can do with a good bag – namely large library (or book store!) hauls. This bag comes in two sizes and two colors!

Custom Ears Tote

dog tote

Barkley and Wags – $25+

Besides books… when we go anywhere we have approximately 300 dog things to tote along. So throw them (and your books) into this custom ears dog tote (once again, you know how I feel about dog ears)! It also comes in two sizes and two colors.

Kindle Case

kindle pouch

Aphrodite Book Club – $27.95

You know, I said I would never buy a Kindle and I do prefer a book book but I gotta say, they are so darn convenient! This pouch (in a limited edition print!) will protect your device and show the world you are a dog lover.

Kindle Paperwhite Cover

kindle cover

Ohio Design Space – $26.36

Another way to keep your Kindle protected, this fun printed case wraps around your device. You can even personalize it!

Happy Sewer Gifts – $23.41

Prop your device up for some hands free reading (especially if you have the automatic Kindle page turner!) with this machine washable fabric stand.

Carley Designs Co – $9.50
