Authors Adopt!

From the wonderful Julia Quinn:

“I’m thrilled and honored to partner with Penny Reid for Authors Adopt 2020, a program that aims to give autographed books to the medical workers who are working so selflessly to keep the rest of us safe during this crazy time.Photo: Julia Quinn for Authors Adopt

“If you are a medical worker and would like a FREE autographed book, sent to you directly from an author, click here to fill out this form.

“It’s a small but heartfelt way to say thank you.”

I’m equally thrilled and honored to be donating my books as part of this wonderful program. At last count, nearly 1,000 authors are participating!

If you’re a medical worker, please feel free to sign up. And if you know any medical workers who might be interested, please could you share? Thank you!

A miniature bookshop!

What is it about miniatures that’s so fascinating? I saw these photos on Andy West’s Twitter and was instantly enchanted. Just look at his magnificent handiwork!

“A real labour of love,” says Andy.

 

He says: “It’s a kit made by a company called Imagine3d — not much about them online. It took about 18 hrs, over a month and HUGE patience. You need to buy extra glue, craft knife, 3v batteries and scissors. It’s so tricky and SO rewarding!”

Rewarding indeed.

Reading is good for the brain . . .

. . . As science tells us, and proves with MRIs and so on. Isn’t this a beautiful representation of the goodness too? :)

Loch Ness Monster ladles!

These are obviously not the least bit bookish, but I am so enchanted that I must post about them!

The whole family!

By the way, I bet it would be extremely difficult to say “Loch Ness Monster ladles” three times fast. ;)
