My favorite clothing season after tank top season is hoodie season. I love the fuzzy insides of a good hoodie or sweatshirt, especially when I’m lounging at home with my current read. I also love to wear them to the yoga studio, peeling them off as the class progresses and my body begins to generate its own warmth. Of course, the only thing that makes a good warm top better is when it’s bookish sweatshirts or hoodies for readers.
Last fall, I pulled together a collection of great options for bookish hoodies, and earlier this year, I put together a library-specific shirts and sweatshirts collection. Given the incredible range of options there are for readers looking to get snuggly or add to their everyday wardrobes, I’m excited to highlight even more great options.
Find below a ton of different bookish sweatshirt and hoodies, any and all of which would make for great work-from-home outfits or excellent reading uniforms. I’ve noted sizes available where possible, but keep in mind that even small shops like the ones feature here pass on the (unnecessary) cost of larger sizes to those who need them.
These hoodies and sweatshirts for readers would make outstanding self-love purchases or make any reader’s heart melt if they received them as a gift any time of year.
