I’m reading this next and hopefully it lives up to the promise in the blurb. The one last week — A Wicked Snow — had an awesome blurb that got me excited, but only half delivered.

Random question answer: I LOVE the idea of books being repurposed into something else! I was researching the Last Bookstore when I discovered book art and I fell in love with it.

Here’s one more! This decor seemed to unusual to me the first time I saw it, but now I think every store should do the same.
