Excuse Me, Is Your Book Wearing a Thong

I am not sure if you noticed, but I was MIA this weekend. I had a last minute getaway to celebrate this beautiful country. I have had quite the day today catching up with everyone elses wonderful weekends. The blogging world goes on without me, but I tell you what I was really missing it. It is glad to be home.

When I was reading though I stopped by Debbie's at Cranberry Fries she is having a contest.

It really got me thinking about how all my books in my reading pile must feel. They are all just laying there unadorned* when they could have been wearing one of those fancy up the crack thongs. Now I admit when I first heard the term book thong I was kinda confused. Was this a thong which I could wear that was meant for carrying books**? Or a thong your book was supposed to wear? And if it is the second, could someone explain to me why my books need underwear? But after viewing Stupid Shiny Designs etsy shop I was somewhat disappointed. It was definitely not a thong for me to wear that would hold my book for me; it is in fact underwear for my book. I may not be 100% accurate in that statement. Anyhow if your books don't have any underwear you should definitely go over to Debbie's book thong contest and enter to win.


* That isn't completely true some have the slip from the library stuck in there as a bookmark
** I think I need to invent book carrying thong underwear and have Kristina P market them for me. They would go great under a snuggie.

I wondered if this is the thong you were talking about!

I replied to you on my blog, and said that if you say thong, I'll be there. (MJ reference thrown in for free.)

Kristina - I think we need to invent a real thong for us to wear (well not together that would be weird) but a thong that a person can wear to carry their books. :)

I'm still confused about what a book thong is. Is it a book mark?

Amber Lynae said...

Yes the book thongs are actually just beautifully designed bookmarks that have beads and pendants and help keep your place in a book.

I've never heard of a book thong. It sounds interesting. I'll have to go check out Debbie's site!

Debbie said...

I remember when my friend told us about them a few years ago, we went to google it....bad idea. Haha. Thanks for the shout out, you're super sweet!

Sigh of relief! I envisioned something lacy and red hanging out of my book. *whew * I'm glad it's not!

Chantele said...

You are so funny!:) I went and entered. Book thongs are awesome! What a fun idea!

I haven't made anything out of red lace, but I do have something red and sparkly!

Amber Lynae, thank you so much for checking into my site, I'm sure the clearification of what a 'bookthong' really is put your mind at ease. And yes, Deb, googling 'thong' is a bad idea...(oh my eyes! it burns!)
