Oh my gourd: Etsy has book pumpkin centerpieces for autumn that will delight avid readers. The (bestselling!) centerpieces are made from upcycled book pages and come in various sizes, with prices ranging between $12 and $22 depending on the small, medium, or large options. It also comes in a set of three (which comes in all three different sizes) for $40. Is there anything more autumnal than pumpkins and a good book (or some variation of) by a cozy fireplace? 

The thought of removing pages out of books might make bibliophiles flinch, but who could resist the dreamy end result? The book pumpkins are finished off with an orange tint, the words of the pages still visible. It’ll add a nice autumnal touch to any table, as well as serve as the ultimate conversation piece. Just prop them on a fireplace mantle, end table, dinner table, or bookcase, and the centerpieces will liven up any Halloween or Thanksgiving. 

Just note that the pumpkins will arrive flat, but there will be instructions on how to best fan the centerpieces out. Much of the reviews are positive, too. “These were a creative and adorable addition to my fall decor,” one reviewer wrote. “I got many compliments!” Another buyer noted that they purchased it for a classroom—the book pumpkins would also make great fall decor gifts for teachers.
