Purchasing this teapot for one is one of the best things I ever did for myself. It is the perfect size so the tea can be consumed before it gets too cool. The knob on top the pot is delightful since it is two volumes stacked one over the other. Scrawled randomly over the exterior of the pot are select authors' names and book titles. Also scattered on the surface are various-sized books in teal and loden green (two of my favourite colours). All in all, this is much better than expected.

I knew as soon as I saw it I would have to have it. I read everyday and drink tea. My supervisor also reads and drinks tea as well. She had helped us with some projects, so I thought it would be a good idea to purchase one for her, to say thank you. When I checked it was on sale, so I bought two. My boss just loved it. Mine is sitting in the dining room on top of the china cabinet. It is well made, with incredible detail.

This is a wonderfully imaginative product for the book lover or simply the tea lover but after two attempts, the items arrived broken. Communication was had with the Customer Service department of the company and their attitude was apathetic. They put the emphasis on me to PROVE the items were broken despite my multiple orders with them. I was not impressed. I will NOT order from this merchant again.

I love the design and concept of the teapot. I should have read the description more carefully: it was much smaller than I thought. It was just above full size mugs in the same pattern in the catalog, so I thought it was a full size pot. It is not, but I am still very pleased with my purchase.

This teapot is adorable, BUT,the first one arrived and the finial on the lid was broken. That was fine, anything can happen. I returned it. Within a few days I received and e-mail stating that the replacement was on its way, BUT this time they had the wrong delivery address. When I called customer services I was met with a snotty attitude who argued with me that they were sending the second one where the first teapot was sent. I work so I'm not home during the day and have all of my packages delivered to my office. When I told her that, she told me I was wrong and that the first one had been delivered to my home. Howver, when I started to give her my office address, she was able to complete it for me. Ignorant woman! Two days later the second teapot arrived and again, it was broken. The inner rim that holds the lid was broken off behind the spout and laying in the bottom of the pot. There is insufficient packing to cushion a breakable item. The only cushion was a piece of styrofoam on the bottom and

You really can't make tea with it because if you put it in the microwave the handle will be to hot to hold. I am keeping it and maybe give it to another friend who collects teapots. This teapot is great but just a collector's item.

We are a family of readers so this little teapot appealed to us in several ways. Gave it as a Christmas gift and the receiver was thrilled. Couldn't wait to get home, make a pot of tea, get in the comfy pj's and curl up with the latest book. We even loved the box it came in, all covered in books. I ordered this rather late but it got here for Christmas. I hope it will still be available throughout this year becuase I have several birthdays of friends and family coming up and I'd order this again in a heartbeat.
