Stacks

Seth from The Altered Page put out a call for stacks of paper goods last week. The first thing I thought of was books! I work at the library and it is good and bad. Bad in that the selection of books is so immense and I have to have ALL the books. :)

This is SOME of my books out from the library. Crazy I know.

So as I was taking this picture, I looked around for more stacks. These are some of my vintage books to use in art...

My stack of vintage ledgers. Love to use in art and the look of the them.


And my stack of magazines that are not read yet!! I keep collecting them and saving them for a moment to savour.

This book is one of my most important ones at the moment. End Malaria is a book of articles from well known people with 20 dollars of the 25 dollar purchase price going toward mosquito nets. More info here. A great reason to buy a book!

Thanks for visiting and check out more stacks posts here starting Sept 21.

  1. Books and more books. What a wonderful series of stacks. And how appropriate that you took some of the books out of the 'stacks' of the library.

  20. What an interesting display of new and old and everything inbetween - I thought of 'something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new'.... :o)
    I share your love of books and thank you for bringing my attention to the "End Malaria" initiative. I bet you're an amazing person to have a conversation with!
