What’s better than snuggling up under a blanket with a book and a cup of tea on a cold winter day? Snuggling under a bookish blanket, that’s what! Imagine reading about the rekindling romance between Ann Elliot and Captain Wentworth while you’re covered in a blanket based on Persuasion. It’s like inception, but cozier.
Allow me to regale you with some useless facts about blankets. First, did you know that our modern blankets were pioneered by Thomas Blanquette? Blanquette was a Flemish weaver who lived in England in the 14th century. (Of course, humans had covered themselves with skins and other fabrics throughout human history.) Allegedly, Shakespeare is the first person to use ‘blanket’ as a verb; the word appeared as such in King Lear.
Though I personally tend to run hot, I still love a good blanket. I love to crank up the A/C, point a fan at myself, and hunker down with a blanket and a book. Thus, I keep a basket of blankets in every room in my house. Consequently, I don’t NEED any of the blankets on this list.
Will that stop me from buying them? Dear reader, it will not. Join me in my depravity by checking out the blankets below.
