When I became a mother, one of my priorities was sharing my love of books with my children. Here are three of my favorite children's books about books.
I joined the Book Club of California last week and received an envelope filled with back issues of their newsletter, journal (letterpress printed and edited by Peter Koch, no less), and other information from past publications, talks, and exhibits.
This weekend I finished Books: A Memoir, by Larry McMurtry. The book was recommended to me last year by a rare book librarian in my California Rare Book School class at Berkeley. To have lived a long life surrounded by books and to have the thrill of getting in new stock and the pleasure of browsing through it - I can't imagine a more rewarding day of work.
