          For serious book readers, the literary glasses are a perfect gift. Our long time friends were just delighted with this set after hosting us in their home. Book Club attendees will use them often as will guests at other gatherings. Our friends plan to use them without a word to guests at first, to watch what happens when the first person notices what they really are.

            Bought two to share my favorite wine or scotch and one of my favorite literary characters with friends and family. Add "To Kill a Mockingbird" and I'd have the perfect set of glasses!

                My husband loved them - got the Constitution glass and Declaration of Independence glass for his oath ceremony gift. Also got him the Sherlock Holmes glass for fun because he enjoys reading those.

                  I decided to grab this after it caught my attention in the catalog. Fan of Jane Austen and I just love it. Would make a great gift for your favorite book lover. May have to order the Sherlock one, too.
