For me, online shopping is a double-edged sword: on the one hand, it allows me to get my to-do list done without leaving the house, but on the other, its a trap makes it a whole lot easier to buy things I want but not necessarily need. Or at least, that is what it feels like everytime I start scrolling through the pages at
Urban Outfitters. One minute, I'm picking out a new lamp for my bedroom, and the next, I've filled my shopping cart with bookish accessories from UO that no reader could resist. As far as bad habits, it isn't the worst one to have.
I know what you're thinking:
Urban Outfitters and books, what do those two things have to do with each other? Despite its name, the clothing company has a lot more than graphic tees and ripped jeans to offer its literary-loving clientele. Not only does Urban Outfitters sell a unique variety of books but the retailer offers everything from beautiful journals and fun pencils to cozy reading blankets and perfectly plump pillows. Whatever your reading needs — or rather, wants — Urban Outfitters probably has just the thing for your, including these 19 bookish accessories you can't help but add to your shopping cart.
