on a few shelves
I enjoyed creating a collection of books for Goodwill. History, memoirs, letters, biography, inspirational, novels, and poetry books were included. A book may belong to more than one category (history, biography, memoir).
Reading about another person’s journey can be a great encouragement. There may be a long time between books. I may read a poet and admire craft – and then the poet shares about many revisions. And sometimes the art is simply a gift. So this is a good time of reflection as well.
Now I am thinking about music, and small press books and poetry journals. For example, I have Christmas CDs by Amy Grant – maybe I will donate one CD. And I have more than one copy of some journals – perhaps received an extra copy as payment for work or a donation – and can share with others.
