Thinking of a Brontë Christmas gift? Some things we have found around:
Decorative Literary Caricature Pillows

Lit majors will love these portrait pillows of Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë or Edgar Allan Poe, made out of recycled plastic bottles transformed into a highly absorptive, cotton-like material. Choose from a long list of writers, artists and musicians (van Gogh, Beethoven, Dickens, Whitman and others). $50 each; available at Uncommongoods.com (Source)
Pity that the Charlotte they sell is really Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

We are not really very fond of the U Star concept, but there are people out there that seems to think that this is a good way to introduce teens to reading the classics:
