The Bookworm’s T-Shirt Collection

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons.

There is no afternoon better spent than with a book in one’s hand. We bookworms know this as a fact of life. We love to spend hours locked away, rain slithering down the windowpanes and pattering on the rooftop, with a hot drink in one hand and a well-loved book in the other.

Books are an open door to another world. That’s why we read them. They give us insight into the minds of people we might not meet otherwise, and take us to places we may not ever be able to go – whether that’s across the ocean, into a jungle, atop a mountain, out in outer-space, to the past, to the future, to a world that doesn’t exist…books can take you there.

Whether you’re the kind of book lover that likes to cuddle alone with your cat, or the kind of book lover that likes to read outside with plenty of natural light – there’s a book, and, consequently, a t-shirt for you. What kind of books do you love? Romance? Science Fiction? The Classics? Are you a solitary reader, or the kind that just has to read the same thing your friends are? We’ve got a tee for that.

We’ve gone around and collected all the best book-related t-shirts from around the web, so you can show your bookworm team spirit on your sleeve, even while you have your favorite novel tucked under your arm. Take a look, and if you know of a book-related tee and don’t see it here, please submit it so we can add it to the collection.

Stay awesome, and never stop reading.
