I was having serious doubts about the direction of my life before I saw this mug. Then I bought it for a friend and everything changed. No one has any clue how potent the force of a new mug in your life is. It's probably better than therapy*

We loved the concept of this product, but it falls just short of greatness. The blackened areas of the mug are arbitrary. What would make this mug perfection is if more title words could be seen when the mug is cool so that the titles themselves form a narrative or a statement - something that can be appreciated once the coffee/tea cools. It wouldn't be that difficult to achieve and so - just short of greatness.

Comments about UncommonGoods Banned Books Morph Mug:

This is a great mug. Really fun to see how many of the banned books you've read. Beware, however, that it is not dishwasher safe (don't know about microwave).

    We gave it as a gift to the school librarian. We wanted something different than what everyone else would give her, but not break the bank either. It was the perfect gift. She loved it.

    This was a perfect gift for my sister. She is in school to get her degree in library science, so this was right up her alley! The mug is a good size and the "morphing" effect worked well.
