Reading without Books?

So this is the inevitable post that was going to come up on a blog about a love of books and a love of going green... the Kindle/Nook revolution.  Our debate about this goes back and forth constantly.  Both of us love the good old fashioned page turner AND the new fangled light weight portable library.  To sort out our dialogue and hopefully to inspire some of you to chime in with your lovely opinions, we are going to do a little pro list for both options.  Please, feel free to comment with anything you feel we have missed on our list or which you prefer.  We would LOVE to hear from you!! 
Tod & Copper

PROS: Kindle/Nook
-light weight
-green, very green
-convenient to carry all your books with you in one place - carries up to 1,500 books!!
-great for the jet setter
-sleek style 
-you can style it up by buying your own designer cover
-not only can you get over 500,00 books but you can also get newspapers, magazines, and blogs
-3G wireless network links you up so you can buy new books in over 100 countries
-you can sync your device with all your other life altering technology (i.e. iPod, iPad, blackberry, etc.)

PROS: The Good, Old Fashioned Book
-tangible, page turner
-libraries! we love libraries! 
-if you like, you can mark, highlight, doodle, draw... whatever you want in them!
-book smell 
-without books, we would lose book stores and who doesn't love sitting in a book store
-when the books are no longer readable you can reuse it and make fun, creative, charming things out of them (thats what we are all about HERE)
-no matter how big the Kindle/Nook get, they will never have all the books... we love the obscure, random finds in the darkest corners of your bookstore
-authors can't sign your kindle

Chicago (the city and the band)
the can can
The Cardigans
Craig, Daniel (as in Bond, James)
calling cards
chemistry (between people)
Carl Jung
crickets chirping 
clocks (see here)
can-do attitudes

Mother's Day

Since Mother's Day is quickly approaching and because I love my mother I have decided to look into a really cute card for her.  She LOVES a good hand written note so its kind of important to get just the right one.  So, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce our contenders (all are from etsy btw)...

Pillow Talk

I honestly thought of this post because I liked the idea of the title Pillow Talk.  But as I got to searching for cute pillows online I was overwhelmed by all the great options!  If you are going to rest your head on something why not choose one of these adorable decorative pillows!  These are all different styles and all different price ranges so there is something for everyone. Which are your favorites?? Do you know of any other charming options to rest you head on?  

Etsy Love: emmakisstina

Looking for some simple, girly, inexpensive decor?  Well, we just fell in love with emmakisstina on etsy.  She does prints of original ink drawings of jewelry, bags, perfume and much much more.

I don't know if its because she sells images of all our favorite items, but she has drawn us in as one of our favorite esty sellers.  The best part?  They are super affordable!  From $12 to $24 you could fill a room with these lovely images and bask in the beauty of being a girl!!  I think I need the Miss Dior Cherie perfume image desperately.  Which do you wear?  Which are your favorites?

Hello Again

Hi everyone!! Its Tod here.  Sorry for the hiatus... my fantastically wonderful boyfriend was in from London for the week and I wanted to spend as much time with him as I could.  Plus, I hit a hard core blogging wall.  But it is good to be back!!

-Copper and I are together for a bibliochic fest for the next 10 days!! We are so thrilled to spend our time together and working on the blog and our etsy store.  We love this so much and we are excited to dedicate a whole week and a half to nothing but being bibliochic!
-Our etsy store is doing great!  If you haven't checked out the shop already please do! We love having new visitors. 
-Bethany is the lucky winner for our giveaway at Classy Covet.  CONGRATS BETHANY! She is receiving our beautiful bright blue book clock.  Go and take a look at it here
-Green is Sexy included us in a post about etsy products that are fab for reduce, reuse and recycle.  We were featured as the reuse!! We were so grateful for their support and for all they do to show us that green really is sexy.

Green is Sexy

Hi friends, this is Copper filling in for Tod!  She asks your forgiveness for being MIA this past week.  A special someone has flown across the ocean to be with her so they are enjoying every moment they can.  So sorry about our little hiatus, we are now back up and will be blogging regularly.  And, what exciting news to blog about!  Our etsy shop was spotlighted today by one of our favorite blogs! is an amazing blog where you can read about all kinds of tips on being green and finding green products.  They think that the small changes each person can make will have a big impact.  Being green (and sexy) ourselves, we just can't get enough.  Today they did a piece on etsy stores that reduce, reuse, or recycle and our store was picked for reuse!  We are so ecstatic and can't believe it!  Go check it out for yourself here and rememeber, being green really is sexy!
