Another inky evening's here...

the air is cool and calm and clear.
Brian Lies, Bats at the Library

As I am temporarily otherwise occupied, this seems a serendipitous moment to post:

It is never too early or too late to introduce someone you love to the joy of collecting books autographed by our current crop of extraordinary writers & illustrators.

I agree!

Awww... thanks, Leslie! I've got a couple of signed Barbara O'Connors in MY collection... :-)

Someone I met in my travels in the last month told me of a thing she does when there's a newish young person in her life: she gives that child an inexpensive BOOKSHELF and a few starter books. I think this is brilliant--not only helping cement the joy of reading, but also planting the idea of filling the rest of that shelf space.
