The Greatest First Lines of Literature Ever Mug

#UF6502     $12.95

Call me Ishmael. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." "All this happened, more or less." Our bookishly cool mug features twenty-four memorable opening lines - in different colorful fonts - from iconic novels including A Christmas Carol, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Great Gatsby, Lolita, 1984, Ulysses, and Gravity's Rainbow. On the bottom of the mug you'll find the sources for each quote. What a great way to savor some great morsels of literature with your morning cup of joe!

    Comments about Bas Bleu The Greatest First Lines of Literature Ever Mug:

    I bought 5 of these mugs to give as gifts (with one for myself). They are practical and fun. The recipients of these mugs have loved them. I use mine all the time: soup, coffee, to show off my knowledge of literature ;)
    It all gains a comment from someone, and an expressed desire to get one for themselves.
    Would highly recommend this mug to anyone.

        No negative remarks about this product. It is original, thought provoking and fun. I purchased a similar mug from you about Shakspearean insults. The price is right and worth the fun.
