small home library
books and journals
to read at different times
some to reread
and some to give away
Last summer, I enjoyed creating a collection of books for Goodwill in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Books that may bless someone else.
There are books I will always keep, and sometimes I may order a copy for a library or friend. Small press journals may be new for many people, and may inspire someone to write.
Now I look at my small home library, and books I learned about from reviews and blogs are waiting to be read, or read again. Used books as well. Some covers are faded, some are new, all beautiful. Memories, gratitude, hope, and new inspiration. One or two books at a time now.
I hope to create another donation this year.
We also like to donate copies of Quiet Christmas Poetry which is both a site and large print chapbook.
