50 Novel Innovations Inspired by Reading and Publishing

— January 22, 2009 — Lifestyle
Books are compilations of words that tell our history, our interests, our concerns. They record our greatest ideas, our petty peeves, our pain and our joy. Whatever human beings are can be found in books. If you love books, you know that you need things to go with books, like reading lamps and bookcases.

So many things are made for books or inspired by books that I decided to gather up the ones we’ve discovered here for everyone to enjoy.
