On the Books

Why have coffee-table books when you can add novel charm to any surface that needs hardcover protection? Featuring the covers to 8 of America's best-known and most-beloved books, these coasters will let you show your prejudice for good literature with pride. From Aldous Huxley's foreboding Brave New World to Joseph Heller's retrospective Catch-22, there's something that every bookworm, writer, or teacher can enjoy. When not in use, they become the pages of an adorable, canvas-wrapped "book case," blending in perfectly right next to these titles on your shelf. Made from heavy weight, water-resistant cardboard stock, these coasters will ensure there's no way you will miss the mark(s)! Made in China.

    If you're a book person, these are super-cool. They work exactly as you would hope. Nice thick stock. Water-resistant.

        Because this is a gift, I didn't open the package, so I can't really speak to the water resistant quality of the coasters. I really wanted to keep these coasters, but alas, I got them for my daughter, an English teacher. I know she will be thrilled. They would be a good conversation starter at a party, as in "Have you read. . .? I also like it that every Out of Print purchase helps send books to Books for Africa.

        I'm sure they work well. I just love the site for providing such unique ideas for gifts. That's why I come back. If the quality of the stuff becomes a question, that's when I will no longer come back to the site. Until then, this is a tremendous site.

          Disappointing

          • Cheap-looking
          • Flimsy

          Best Uses

            Comments about LITERARY COASTERS - SET OF 8:

            I'm glad that I had ordered these for myself & not as a gift, because they are not high-quality in appearance nor in function. The design is cute, & I do like the fact that they come in the little book cover, but the positives end there. They are thin & much flimsier than I had expected. Also, when they get damp from the cup or glass, they stick to the glass when I pick it up. These things have fallen to the floor numerous times already, after attaching to the cup & then falling off before I realize what is happening. It was an inexpensive purchase, not worth the hassle of returning, but needless to say am disappointed by this product & the way it was not accurately advertised/portrayed online.

              Since it's made out of cardboard, I expected these to warp and bubble when wet but so far they're completely waterproof and can just be wiped dry. Storage is easy in their little book box, and the design is cute!

                    This was a gift for a friend who is a book lover. I wanted to get something practical and useful...that she can leave out on her coffee table. It is great for any book lover. These are sturdy, pretty and I liked that they are water resistant. They also fit into the little book for storage. Just adorable.
