The One Item I Take With Me Everywhere

**There’s info about two different giveaways kicking off on today’s post, so make sure you scroll all the way down to enter! 


I’m an introvert. I’m a people-person, and I can make a friend just about anywhere, but I’m an introvert. I can spend days on end by myself and I need time alone or I get overwhelmed. But, even with time alone, I never ever get bored. Because I always have a method of escape with me. And while it’s certainly important to have some basics when out and about, you know… like a license and house keys, there’s another item I place pretty much just as highly: my Kindle.

“I read books not because I don’t have a life, but because I choose to have many.”

This. This is exactly why I love to read. I’m an escapist. I love my life quite dearly, but I love to imagine others as well. Be it real or fantasy, small town or big city. Reading enables me to meet people I cherish, visit places and join cultures that fascinate, and imagine lives that are so different than my own.

And that’s exactly why I take my Kindle everywhere. So that I can escape. So that I can live all these different lives, meet all these great characters. There is no such thing as down time when you have a book to read. And while I completely know the value of a tangible book, the smell and feel of one, there is so much to be said for having hundred of books fitting in a small clutch instead.

I stumbled upon this shirt on Groopdealz, and while they had loads of the prettiest dresses and tops, this is what won me over. Turns out they offer cute book tees all the time! I spoofed up the graphic tee with some fun, vibrant tassel earrings, and intend to recreate this combination soon:). They’ve currently got two different collections for sale, here and here.
