Confessions of a bookblogger #7 – I don’t really like bookish goodies

Yep, I’m not the biggest fan of bookish goodies. Sure, there are things that I like, but mostly something related to books won’t really make me happy. I’d rather just have a piece of chocolate, or a book of course.

Somehow I’ve a bit of a thing against anything that I can’t use. This means that certain things, like pillows and tote bags, I’m a big fan of. However, funkos… not so much. I love the way they look, don’t get me wrong, I just feel their useless (which I suppose technically they are). They’d just be standing there, taking up space, gathering dust… which means it’s something extra I’d have to clean – I don’t like cleaning.

I hardly ever wear jewelry, so bookish jewelry? Not for me. Different cell phone cases? Nope, I only use one anyway. I’d forget the change them and the other ones would end up in the back of a drawer.

It pretty much comes to this: if I use it without it being bookish, I’ll also use it when it’s book-related. However, if I don’t use it anyone, just making it bookish, isn’t going to make me like it.

  1. Yes, finally someone who understands the futility of may bookish goodies. I totally don’t understand why people like them. Whatever are we to do with stuff that’s just going to lie around. I’d rather buy a few more books with that money.

    1. Oh yea, I’m not a fan of the dusting either. All those tiny things, and then having to pick them up as well to dust the shelf properly and then trying to make sure they’re put back so it looks nice again. Nope, not my idea of fun neither.


  2. I don’t see the appeal of funko pops, so I don’t own any. In general I now have less decoration on my shelves and in my life than 2-3 years ago. I only own things that I truly love and/or that have a special meaning to me. Constantly buying new decoration or other little things is something I no longer do.

    1. I’m trying to get there as well: just owning things I love. I’m not quite there yet, but I’ve gotten rid of a lot of things over the past year for exactly that reason (so many shoes, clothes and books had to go!).
