6 Quotes That Sum up What It’s Like to Be a Book Lover
Oh, books. Glorious, glorious books. We can’t stop buying them, thinking about them, and of course, reading them. Now, you can wear your literary heart on your sleeve with I Cannot Live Without Books, a set of bookish tattoos.
Featuring bibliophile-themed quotes, mantras for book lovers, celebrations of punctuation, and more, these temporary tattoos let you outwardly express your love for reading in a non-permanent way.
Check out some of our favorite quotes from the set:
“The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.” —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Morituri Salutamus”
“A book a day keeps reality away.”
“There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away, nor any coursers like a page of prancing poetry.” —Emily Dickinson, “XVI. A Book”
“He never went out without a book under his arm, and he often came back with two.” —Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“When I get a little money I buy books. If any is left, I buy food and clothes.” —Erasmus
“Book lovers never go to bed alone.”

You can get these in (temporary) tattoo form here—and maybe you’ll even decide to make one permanent.
