A Tiny Barnes and Nobles


It’s 6:30am and I’m up doing my morning ritual of checking for new updates on Tumblr. Every now and then I look at trending topics for any interest. If there was nothing I would go to Recommended Blogs. Tumblr always changed their blogs and topics, so sometimes, you never know what you come across. Fortunately, I found an adorable blog known as little-literature.

It turns out this blog is a small business that sells book charms of famous novels and series. As a bookworm and a lover of miniature things, that IMMEDIATELY caught my attention. Seeing miniature things on Tumblr wasn’t anything new, but it’s fascinating that these charms are based on famous books. You can even order a set based on a series such as Harry Potter

Most of Little Literature followers have asked whether these charms can open like a real book. Business owner and designer known as Abby says that all the charms she makes are made sealed, however, upon request, she has made charms that actually do open.

Here is charm of the first Harry Potter book that contains the first chapter inside.


With these surprising discovering, this shows that you never what you find on blog sites like Tumblr, Pinterest, or WordPress.

Here’s Little Literature Tumblr and official website:

See if you can find your favorite book as a charm!

    I think this idea is genius. I’m sure her business is doing very well, profit wise. There are many people that love reading novels, and I always see a type of charm hanging from their keys or bracelets that represent the novel. Having the actual book in a miniature size is great for the fans. I also love the idea of the designer creating the book so it opens upon request. You would think they would not open, but to have that option available, only makes the business and book charms that much better. These are fantastic. Great Find!

    This is one of those ideas that you wish you thought of first! It’s a an idea that’s very cutesy and smart. As a generation that enjoys wearing and showing off their interests in the many forms of merchandise already, this creation has a ton of promise. Imagine doing the same thing with your favorite video games and CD’s. Cool post!
