Heading back to school? Do it in style, but don't let your love of books go unnoticed this school year. Show off your love for all things literature with a cool literary T-shirt. What better way to tell the world that you're a well-read genius than by wearing your favorite book-inspired t-shirt? Forget regular graphic tee's. Literary shirts are most certainly the way to go.
Whether you're a Potterhead, a tribute, or a Twi-hard, there is a shirt out there that let's you show off your fandom. No longer does your love of literature have to be confined to your blog/diary/Tumblr page, because you can express it through your clothing instead. These shirts are even great conversation pieces. From pick-up lines to fangirling, there is a host of conversations to be had. Who knows? You may meet your (literary) soulmate. Star-crossed lovers who meet over a T-shirt? Now that's a book I'd like to read. Whether you pair it with jeans, a mini skirt, or a blazer, all 13 of these tees below are perfect for adding to your back to school wardrobe.
