Any book lover knows it’s well worth the shoulder strain to schlep around your favorite reads. Whether it’s that brand new hardcover that weighs 50 pounds (What, this 3,000 page autobiographical novel? It’s not that heavy!) or a slim, tech-savvy e-reader that spares you the chiropractor bills, you want people to know you are serious about reading.
These totes do the trick. Not only are they ideal for all-purpose lugging, they’re a beacon to fellow book lovers that they’ve spotted a kindred spirit in the wild. Scroll through our slideshow to find your new literary carryall – and wear your bookishness with pride.
