Best quotes about books – recommended sites

Etsy – it’s the top destination for anyone who wants to express the love for books. The largest marketplace with hand-crafted goods offers thousands of literary quotes – on posters, jewelry, personal items, electronic accessories, and clothes.

Redbubble – a marketplace for custom-designed items, including prints, stationery, cases & covers, or t-shirts. Opposite to other sites, such as CafePress, the quality of artwork is very high.

Zazzle – the site offers a huge variety of merchandise, from clothing, to home decor, to personal accessories. What’s more, users can upload their own image and create their own design.

Amazon Handmade – if you don’t want to sign up to other online stores, you can start exploring Amazon’s own section with hand-crafted items. It’s quickly growing, and you’ll find here posters, home decor, and stationery – also with book quotes.

Do you have a thought about books or reading that you’re particularly proud about? Make sure to share it in the comments below, together with a link to your blog or social media profile.

We are planning to create a list of book quotes from our readers. Stay tuned!
