for the love of literature.

book-lover

I’ve said it before and I will say it again.

I love books.  I’m a reader.  I read anything and everything.  I began my love affair with books about 8 years ago.  I liked books before that, but hadn’t truly cultivated a desire to read fine literature.  One day, I closed a book and had a totally different outlook on life.  From that day on, I was hooked.  Hooked on the possibilities of what a book can do.

I have a book club.  I read each day.  I love the smell of books.  I love the look of books.  I love that each book offers something.  I love that I become different each time I crack open their spine. I love that I can’t part with my books.  I part with furniture, pictures, bedspreads and clothes with ease….yet I can never get rid of a book that I have read.  It’s a part of me.

I love them.

I want Kensington to love books too. When I was asked by my friend, Sarah, if I would like to participate in a kids book exchange, I was SUPER excited.  I’m not usually game for the “chain letter” concept, but in this case, I’m a BIG fan!

Basically, you send one childrens book and you get 36 back!  WHAT??!!  FABULOUS.

You get a letter, make copies, send books to the first person on the list, move your name to #2…blahblahblah…you know the drill.

And in about two weeks, you get your books.I can’t wait to pick out a book for our “person” and I can’t wait to see what we receive in the mail.

Here is where I thought of you, blog readers: If YOU would like to be one of the six people that I send a letter to, comment or email me.  I want people that are excited and interested to participate and I figure some of you would love this idea as much as I do!  The first six people to respond will get a letter and be able to have this cool opportunity! Who doesn’t want 36 brand new books for their child!  For the price of 1.

**Thanks, but all 6 spots are filled! **

Let the reading begin.

Problem solved:

If you are like me and have so many books it hurts, you lose track of who you loan them to.  This makes me cranky when I am trying to find it.

Problem solved by my wonderful cousin when she purchased me this STINKIN’ ADORABLE BOOK LABELS.  Go get em’!
