About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

Repurposing Books for the Holidays

Kudos to the Menlo school library in California where a makerspace day was held to create some gorgeous decorative items by repurposing old books. Word is they had so much fun that a second day is planned. Take a look at some pictures of the activity that were posted on Pinterest:

Interested in trying it for yourself? Just Google "repurposing old books," and you will find plenty of help and information. And if you're squeamish about destroying literary works, think about using old phone books or catalogs.

Have fun.
