Like most readers, my summer reading list has already gotten a bit out of control, and it’s not even June! Between Shelley Jane Shore’s transmasc paranormal romance Rules for Ghosting, Al Hess’s delightfully strange sci-fi Key Lime Sky, and a new rom-com from Casey McQuiston (!!!)… I’m already planning out my weekend reading time with care, let’s put it like that.

But that’s only half of what I need to consider. I’m a reader who, when possible, prefers the heft and feel of a print copy over an ebook. One paperback doesn’t weigh too much. When considering vacations or even a weekly library pick-up, though, it gets out of hand without a tote bag for all my books. I’ve misstepped and sent my stack of books flying over the library steps too many times to be without one, at least to avoid being known by other patrons as “that awkward short guy who doesn’t know his limits.”

Whether you’re similarly clumsy or you just want to carry your summer beach reads in style, you can’t go wrong with any of these nine bookish tote bags. Not only are they practical, but they give you the opportunity to make a statement about your favorite reads and perhaps make like-minded friends!
