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.

Cup of Tea and a Book

A cup of tea and a book? How about a teacup made from a book? I know. I know. Some book lovers are horrified by the thought of pages being torn from their books. But if the purpose is to recreate something beautiful from those old pages, then the book lives on in a new form, kind of a literary reincarnation, if you will. That is precisely what artist Cecilia Levy does. She uses books in a novel way (pun definitely intended). From the pages of old books spring lovely, new works of art like the one pictured above. Now that is a wonderful way to recycle.
