Book World Weekend: Jan. 5

I wanted something that showcased the happenings around book blogs and sites by week, special events in the reading community, a location to display stunning bookstores, libraries, and others. Basically anything to do with the wonderfully huge world of books. Can be posted anytime on the weekend, Friday - Saturday - or Sunday.  Feel free to grab the button and join me!


Bookish-World Places

The Kansas City Library is definitely a place where those who live in this city won't forget. How can they passing gigantic books while driving? Featuring classics and greats, this library was innovative, creative, and didn't spare any expense in making a bookish impression.

Bookish-World on the Web

A lot of people have started their challenges, so be sure to keep checking out the newbies as they're posted.

Kim Harrison has posted a contest in her blog post to narrow down the finalist for her to visit that city for the signing of Ever After. Be sure to check it out and vote.

From the site:

Kim is having a grudge match between Atlanta and Minneapolis to decide the last tour stop. First store to have 150 committed buyers gets her!
Price includes shipping to get it to you on release week, and you bring it to the event to get it signed.

Bella's Bookshelf posted a particularly deep post, Holidays that aren't merry bright


Bookish-World Creativity

How cool is this? Never would have thought of it. Building little bookshelves around a couch? Brilliant. Especially would be well furnished in a modern or country style living room, and of course a home library.
