Bookin' It Poem
B ooks, books, and books galore
O utside, inside, and some more
O ver the shoulder, under the table
K eep it handy, 'cause it's sturdy and pretty
B loomsbury is the name
A nd canvas and leather what it's made of
G ifts for readers, too!

I once met a lad named Bloomsbury
And I know we are destined to marry
With his rugged good looks
And the way he totes books
We will honeymoon at the library!

One of Levenger's Best Offerings
I believe this is one of the best items that Levenger offers in terms of value, functionality and quality.
I chose Beige and am happy with the color, as well as how the leather trim coordinates. The bag is very well made, sturdy and stylish. I'm very happy with the amount of storage, and am thrilled with the number, size and placement of the smaller storage pockets; I feel Levenger got this exactly right.
I was also pleased with the accessories I received because some, such as the bookmark bungee, were on my wish list and others I hadn't thought of buying but were very useful.
In truth, I am using all of the accessories that came with the bag for the three books I'm currently reading and other related writing projects, but I'm not using the bag for books: I'm using it as a knitting bag. It is roomy enough for me to carry more than one project and the pockets allow me to have all of my different tools on hand, organized and secure.
In summary, considering the excellent construction, style, versatility, accompanying accessories and price, I feel that this is one of Levenger's best offerings, am very satisfied with my purchase and have no complaints or suggestions to improve the bag.
Thank you, Levenger!

Great Sturdy Product
Well made, very sturdy. Love the pockets. Wish it had a removable shoulder strap.

Lifesaver for the Avid Reader!
I bought this bag because I read all the time and almost everywhere and take ample notes. This tote bag with its handy size and pockets allows me to store everything I need for reading in one place and then just take it wherever I go: from the living room to the bedroom; from the porch to the car; I even bring it to the park with me. It is truly a life saver for me.

Should Have Bought It Sooner
I have been wanting to purchase this bag for some time and finally "bit the bullet". I love the outside pockets so I don't have to go rifling around in my bag to find things that I need frequently (like my cell phone and notebook). It was a bit smaller than I thought it would be but it is quite roomy. It is also made of sturdy material and should last quite a long time. If you are thinking about purchasing this bag - go ahead, you won't be sorry. I only wish it came in a broader range of colors.

My New Favorite Bag
As a woman who loves a great bag and loves extra goodies, this was a product I have had my eyes on for quite some time. Once I finally caved and purchased it, I couldn't be happier I did; it's roomy but compact, sturdy yet functional, comfortable and stylish. It's my go-to bag, and the extras were a definite bonus.

One of my friends, who has everything, was given this, by me, for her birthday. I really wanted to keep it, but had to stick with this gift idea. Recently, I purchased one for myself and I LOVE THIS BAG. I am a reader and so often I need to carry books with me to the salon, doctor's office, office, airport or anyplace I can take out a book to read. Its practical and oh so cute to carry. The colors are great! You can put everything needed for reading in this bag and still have room for your water, fruit or mints. it's light weight and its sturdy handles all together make it a class act!

I use this bag a few different ways, and it gives me just what I need each time. I take it to the Arboretum and/or Botanical Gardens stocked with a book or e-reader a journal & pen, snacks and a beverage. I also take it on hiking & sketching outings filled with a sketchbook, pencils or portable watercolors, snacks and a beverage. I enjoy the bag very much.

Great for hobby gear
I could of course haul books with this, but what I bought it for is to carry my weaving equipment when I travel to teach or go to workshops. The main compartment holds cones of yarn and larger tools, and the outside compartments hold shuttles, hooks, scissors, etc. The fact that the bag will stand upright is very useful when I am sitting on a bench at a loom and need to reach for a tool. I can see this holding tools for other hobbies, as well. I may need to buy more.
