BWW: May 26

An Original Paperback Stash Feature

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

Is this not one of the collect children library themes you've seen? I love it and spot Clifford the big red dog in there. I remember when my son was (briefly) into him.

The shining part of the display, however, is the nifty roller coaster of characters going over the door. Incredible. This scene is from the Cliffside Park Library.


Bookish-World on the Web

Last week was Children's Reading Week of 2013. This week is the upcoming BEA gathering in New York City, a chance for authors, publishers, and readers to get together for exciting panels, autographs, and events.

On the web, the Armchair BEA is being ran for those who cannot attend the physical event. Or, really, those who want to do both.

Check out my post about it here.


Bookish-World Creativity

A stunning Harry Potter birthday cake. No idea who made the cake, grabbed it from here.
