Reading is Breathing: May Exclusive Tee and Bundles

MAY EXCLUSIVE: Reading is Breathing

“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.” – Harper Lee

The exclusive design for May is my original painting “Reading is Breathing“.

When I first read this line in high school (TKAM was required reading for my Junior AP English class), it struck my soul. I was born a reader. As a kid, my nose was always stuck in a book – I was teased for it often. So when I read this quote, suddenly I felt seen. I felt understood. And it has been my favorite quote from literature ever since. My love of classic literature was born in my Junior and Senior english classes. I will forever be grateful to my teachers who assigned such incredible books to us.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a fantastic book, and if you haven’t read it yet – now is the time. Grab my May Book Lover’s Bundle (option 1), which includes a thrifted copy of the book, because I will be hosting a readalong for it at the end of May!

The Exclusive Bundles this month will come in three options: the Basic and the Book Lover’s Option 1 and Option 2.

Included in the Basic Bundle: Reading is Breathing shirt in your chosen size, a 5×7 print of my Reading is Breathing art, and a set (4) of bookplates in the same design.

Included in the Book Lover’s Bundle, Option 1: All of the above, PLUS a thrifted edition of a To Kill a Mockingbird.

Included in the Book Lover’s Bundle, Option 2: All of the items in the Basic Bundle, PLUS a surprise, thrifted edition of one of my (Haleigh’s) personal favorite books. Because TKAM is such a popular and well known book, I thought it would be fun to have a Book Lover’s option including a different book in case you already own TKAM. Since this quote has been a cornerstone of my reading life, the books included in Option 2 will be formative books I’ve read over the years – the books that have changed my life. Think Edith Wharton, Dodie Smith, Rebecca du Maurier, CS Lewis, etc. It will be a total surprise! But not a book that is super mainstream (like Pride and Prejudice). It will be a novel of classic literature. Think of it as a sort of “Blind Date with a Book.” 😉

The exclusive tees and bundles will be available on May 1st at 12pm cst, and will only be in the shop for the month of May.
