Do you ever look at a person in glasses and try to guess what type of books they read? Sometimes, a pair of glasses frames immediately calls to mind a certain  book or genre.

Ok, so maybe it’s just the bookworm in me, but when I browse through our selection of reading glasses, I definitely associate particular styles with particular novels!

Take The Brookside for example:

This pair would be perfect for reading Jane Austen. They just look like a pair of frames that a Jane Austen heroine would wear – stylish but not too ostentatious; intelligent-looking, but also pretty.  I can just imagine reading the pages of Lizzie and Darcy at the ball in these glasses!

With  The Dash glasses, I imagine reading something a little more modern.

This pair is very sleek and contemporary.  These specs look like they should be pulled out in a trendy cafe in some great metropolis to read a “New York Times” bestseller – on an ipad, of course!

Do we have any readers of poetry out there?  Then let me tell you about The Bookworm

Rather classical and learned-looking, but not at all stuffy,  I can just imagine these glasses bent over a volume of Wordsworth or Yeats, or maybe Shakespeare’s sonnets.

So what pair of glasses will you be wearing the next time you pick up your favorite book to read?
