“A Life Well Read” Set Giveaway

Congratulations to Lisa!  Enjoy the set!

I’m happy to tell you carp(e) libris reviews is taking a new turn!  In addition to the usual great book reviews and giveaways, I’ll also be publishing reviews and giveaways featuring items for the book lover.  Our very first giveaway for the book lover would make a fantastic Christmas gift.  A Life Well Read - My Personal Journey Through Books from A Life Unplugged is exactly the sort of thing many of us bookish types drool over.  Made to help you catalog your thoughts and ideas on books you’ve read, keep track of what you have, what you want, what you leant, A Life Well Read prooves to be a little piece of bookworm heaven.

For a few years now, I’ve written down every book I’ve read, keeping track in a journal.  I leave weird little pieces of scrap paper in books where I found something quotable or memorable, but it’s always a hassle to keep it all in line.  Using online sources and computer programs hasn’t really worked well for me.  After all, I read on the couch.  Not at my computer desk.  A Life Well Read includes handy notecards shaped for use as a bookmark so it’s right there where you need it.  Genius!  I hadn’t ever thought of that.  And for someone like me who reviews books?  This could prove a sudden addiction.  Here’s what this set includes:

An elegant, premium-quality keepsake box in the shape of a book which fits easily on your bookshelf to keep your personalized impressions for years to come. Share them with family and friends anytime!

50 pre-printed note cards to use as bookmarks and also record your “a ha’s!” about your favorite books 

Record your notes and impressions, quotes and page references, your personal rating, where you got the book, book club notes, lending history by title and author.

5 pre-printed (and 7 blank) dividers to organize your note cards into a an evolving readers’ journal of your best book content

(All) My Books, My Favorites, Books I Want, Books On Loan, Books To Give and three additional customizable blank categories for you to define for your own needs. Categorize by title, author and subject.

A classic, heavy weight ballpoint pen which fits neatly into your keepsake box so you are always prepared to capture a lifetime of reading!

56 elegant bookplates to personalize your books in your own personal library.

24 color gift labels to add a personal touch to your gifts of books to friends and family and fellow book club members.

3 double-sided gift-giving reminder cards which help you track to who and when you gifted a book
