If you’re like me and you love books (like actual hold-in-your-hands-with-covers-and-pages-you-can-flip-and-smell-books), then you likely have a grand selection in your home that you’ve collected. And if you’re really like me, you share these books with friends and family because you love them (the friends, family and books!) and want them to experience what you’ve read too. If so, how do you keep track of the books you give out?
Here’s some of my book collection:
Do you have a home-library sharing database? Do you have one of those books that helps you list all the books you have, and when someone borrows one you fill out the book? I wish I had the time and patience to have one of those books!
Instead, I have this:
A personalized home library rubber stamp, hand-crafted and mailed to me from The Future Primitive. I found out about the classy cool designer, Jessica Define from The Future Primitive, in one of the home magazines I was reading. I think it was Country Living.
Here’s what it looks like in a book:
I love that it’s hand-crafted.
I love that it’s personalized. I even got a lovely hand-written note from Jessica in the package! Too sweet!
I love that I got it in a fun package in my mailbox.
I love that it will last forever (so long as I have ink).
I love that when the books from my library get passed around people will know where they came from…whether we get the books back or not (the great ones usually never return).
How do you label your home-library books? Are you a sharer? Or a library user?
