In the wise words of Theodore Geisel (and yours truly): "You have brains in your head (debatable). You have feet in your shoes (sometimes). You can steer yourself in any direction you choose (which is normally all over the place)."

How about steering yourself toward some entertaining gear to help celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday today during the 22nd annual Read Across America celebration? Don't forget guys: reading on a Kindle absolutely counts, too!

Public Library Scented Candle

Ahhhh. Who doesn't love the smell of dust, old leather, ultraviolet lights, and the collective breath of a bunch of strangers? Now you can harness said soothing scent within your own home thanks to this made in the USA soy wax candle. Prefer something a bit more mysterious? Try the Edgar Allen Poe option that boasts of cardamom, absinthe, and sandalwood (rather than smelling like Poe himself who has been dead for nearly 170 years).
