A Life Well Read - Giveaway
I'm running a review and giveaway at Thyme for Herbs. I thought some of you might be interested too!! Here's what I wrote:
Have you heard of A Life Well Read, My Personal Journey Through Books put out by A Life Unplugged? I thought my gardening and cooking friends would especially enjoy it. A while ago a friend showed hers to me, and I knew right away I had to have one for myself.
It is an extremely well thought out concept for book readers of any kind. It comes in a beautiful box with a floral design. Inside you'll find large cards that you use as bookmarks for each book you read. You fill out the cards with the title and author of the book, where you got it, and when. Then you can make notes on your thoughts and ideas as you read. On the back there's a place to fill in your lending history (who you gave it to and when it was returned), and a section for book club dates and comments. When you're finished with the book, you file the card in one of several categories; My Books, Books on Loan, Books I Want, Books To Give and My Favorites. It even comes with blank dividers so you can create your own category.
I was excited to see two kinds of elegant bookplates that say either " from the personal library of ---" or "this gift is especially for---". This wonderful set even comes with a very nice pen!
I've said it before, I'm a compulsive list maker. A Life Well Read has made it possible to keep track of all of my books -- from garden books, to herbal books, to historical fiction and mysteries. Besides being functional, it's so beautiful, I really enjoy using it.
