Levenger Brings Back E.B. White's Dachshund Bookend

Hey literature fans, if you missed it the first time around, fear not, E.B. White's Dachshund Bookend is back in stock at LEVENGER, tools for serious readers. This was new to the market last year, and all 1,000 of them sold out in just a few months!

The bookend is sculpted from a drawing E. B. White made of his dachsie Minnie, for the family's 1950 Christmas card. Inscribed on it is White's poem to these petite pooches. One more treat: a freestanding mini booklet containing White's delightful essay on living the good life with his little creature: "[Minnie's] idea of life is a warm bed, preferably with an electric pad, and a friend in bed with her, and plenty of shut-eye, night and day."

Thanks to our friends 'Clancy' and Mim H. for letting us know! TIP: make sure to search the net for Levenger coupon codes.

Love this quote! There is quote from E.B. White on the wikipedia page for dachshunds, too. It is about their occasionally stubborn nature. Seems like he really loved his Minnie!
