“And I Think It’s Fly When Girls Just Read All Summer.”

Yea, yea, yea, those may not be the exact lyrics to the song, but it’s much better this way if you ask me.  Since Valentine’s Day, I’ve been drooling over bookish gifts that could get me through a long summer vacation.  While my reading has hit new highs for the year this month, I still just want to spend all my money on internet goodies.  Most of these include handmade presents filled with bookishness.  So without further adieu, grab yourself a lemonade, or if you’re feeling funky a mojito, here is the Bookish Summer Gift Guide of 2013.  Soon I’m going to do one of these for the broke and the cheap because that’s the category I fit into.
