welcome to bookstack.
if you love all things bookish -their stories, their characters, their writers (and readers), their pages and covers and type and design, their smell and slick pages and hefty spines – then you will feel right at home here.
whenever someone i love gives birth, my gift to the babe is a bookstack. a bookstack is not just a pile of books. oh no. it’s a group of carefully selected books, specifically designed with the reader in mind. for baby kana rene’s bookstack there was pat the bunny and stranger in the forest and goodnight, moon and secret garden (for when she’s older). baby kana’s mom is a gentle soul, with a soft voice and tender heart. the stories in that bookstack seemed just right somehow.
our bookstacks change with our lives. long ago my bookstack was filled with what to expect when you’re expecting and the first three years and raising a gifted child and how to survive your teenager. this month you will find the poet’s companion and literacy and longing in l.a. and the courage to write and war and peace.
wow. quite a smorgasbord.
so settle in and pull up a chair. at my house we often drink while we read – sometimes coffee or tea, occasionally a glass of chardonnay. please help yourself.
now tell me…what’s in your bookstack?
