These Books BLUE Us Away
We collected lots of books with blue covers for our book display. The customers at St Barnabas loved it 🙂
Next week I’ll be writing about Kaycee’s and Ella’s first book club instead of showing you one of my book displays. They’ve been sent 6 copies of James Patterson’s new children’s book, Jacky Ha-Ha and some other items to make the book club meeting fun.
Kaycee’s finished the book and Ella’s over half way. They’re both really looking forward to having their friends round to discuss the book. I’ve ordered some nibbles and drinks for them to enjoy 🙂
Box of Tissues
Read it with a box of tissues is a book display that showcases true life stories. I used to be a fan of those kind of books but since having children, I can’t read them anymore. Most of them are about the author having an awful childhood and they make me too sad.
I just don’t understand, after having three gorgeous babies and watching them grow into wonderful children, how anyone could ever mistreat their child.
I do understand why people read these books, though. They help bring awareness to the public so these things aren’t kept secret.
I suspect telling their story also helps the author move forward with their life.
I can’t get enough of Killer Thrillers at the moment. When I read the Lincoln Rhyme series by Jeffrey Deaver a few years ago and I moved onto thrillers from chic lit. I love the suspense and trying to work out who the killer is. I usually know when we’re watching shows about murder on TV but I’m never very good at it when reading!
Thrillers are very popular at the charity shop, St Barnabas, where I volunteer and this display did really well 🙂
Right now, the book display at the shop is ‘Blind Date With A Book’. I’ll be back with the photos next week 🙂
Have you ‘RED’ these yet?
Pinterest is excellent for getting inspiration for the weekly book displays I do at my local charity shop, St Barnabas.
This one was a display I did last year and it’s a play on words, Have you ‘RED’ this yet?
We saved up all the red coloured books that came in the week before 🙂
If you have any ideas for future book displays I can do, I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a comment 🙂 I’m planning on doing Date Night With a Book for Valentine’s Day.
Another idea is to wrap the books in colourful paper and do a book lucky dip. As an avid reader who struggles to know which book to read next from the huge ‘to read’ pile I have, this one excites me the most!
