Product Review: Knit Fingerless Gloves

Knit Fingerless Gloves

These gloves are honestly, absolutely great! I have a couple of pairs of fingerless gloves because my hands tend to get cold, especially in the winter, but I need my fingers free to type or turn the pages of my book(among other things). Fingerless gloves is a perfect solution to that. My hands stay warm, I can still work, win/win. My biggest problem has been finding ones that don’t overheat my hands or get too itchy after wearing them for too long.

These are lightweight and easy to carry around in my purse. I’ve used them at work where I do a lot of typing and answering the phone and they’ve stayed in place. Actually, most times I forget I’m wearing them because they’re that comfortable. I did want to wait a little while after receiving them before posting a review, just to make sure they were something I would keep using. I didn’t want to use them for a week then have them sitting on my bookshelves untouched after reviewing them.

I am happy to say I use these gloves quite a bit. I can definitely see me using them even more in the Fall and Winter when it really starts to get cold, but for now, I use them on cold days. Either at work where my area always seems to be on the cold side, or at home where I curl up next to the window to read on rainy nights.

This is definitely a product I can see making its way into my Christmas shopping for some of my bookish friends.

I feel the need for a contemporary binge soon. So much fantasy lately.

Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten unpopular bookish opinions. I don’t think I have a lot of controversial opinions so these are more opinions that I’ve had to defend.

10. Read whatever you want. I can’t stand when people book-shame. If the book sounds good to you, read it.

9. You can learn life lessons from YA books, even as an adult.

8. Not every book needs a romance.

7. Reading isn’t a competition. It’s not about how many books you read or how many ARCs you get. You could read 10 books a year but still get more out of those 10 books than someone who read 100 books.

6. Problematic books should be talked about without the fear that someone will harass you for doing so. Nothing will change unless we talk about it.

5. There’s not enough love for YA Sci-Fi. There’s been some amazing books released in the last few years that seem like they’ve been swallowed up by the fantasy and contemporary trend.

4. Hardcovers over paperbacks!

3. YA is for everyone. Stop judging!

2. It’s okay to hate a book. It’s also okay to stop reading a book you’re not enjoying.

  1. Listening to an audiobook counts as reading it.
