  1. Emily, I LOVE this round-up! You know, I think there’s a lot of crossover between nerds and avid readers except avid readers are “classy” and nerds are, well, nerdy! I think I’ll be looking at your post to find some great inspiration for my loveable nerds too!

  2. Since my family is filled with book lovers, you’ve just inspired me with some gift ideas. Thanks for including my book hugger book marks.
