As vices go, we must confess we find books to be very affordable. Nonetheless, for ravenous readers, that book bill can add up quickly! Why not have a special stash of cash set aside to fuel your passion? Our 8"-tall ceramic Book Fund Piggy Bank
features a plump pink pig perched atop a stack of colorful books. To make a "deposit," simply slip your spare coins and folded bills into the slit on his back. And when the new Bas Bleu catalog arrives or your local library hosts its annual used book sale, just remove the rubber stopper hidden beneath the book stack to make a withdrawal. The bank makes a great conversation piece for devoted bibliophiles - and it's a fun way to encourage young readers to spend their hard-earned allowance on something other than toys and video games!
