The excitement of September has never left me, even though I haven’t been in school for over 5 years. Every year as September draws closer the main things I think about are the fun times I had picking out new clothes, getting my backpacks ready and not sleeping much due to the excitement of a new adventure. But one of the big things I remember fondest is my father’s insistence on reading and teaching us to care for our books. For him, and now for me, books are precious and you take care of something that’s important to you!
I admit I have a bit of OCD when it comes to the condition of my books. My friends may even call me a little psychotic, lol, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with caring for your books. I’ve hit a point that my soft covers barely look read, even though I read some of them yearly, and my hard covers are precious! Heck, my most loved hardcover novels are stored a glass china cabinet LOL. The thing I have always hated the most is getting a bend in the cover of my soft covers. The culprit usually was my backpack and other books. So my dad and I started making these handy dandy book totes to put in our backpack and carry our books. They keep the pages and covers from being bent and help you keep your books looking nice: Artsy You! Keep Creating!!! Angie
