How to Thank a Book
It's Children's Book Week all over the place and we at Puddle Jump Collective
want to join in the fun.
How do you thank a great book?
Talk about it!
Tell your friends!
Tweet about it!
Check it out from the library!
These are a few popular ways to support a good book and the hard-working people who made it.
Here are a few lesser-known ways to thank a book:
Play spine poetry.
Sock page holders.
I mean, even if it was dirty, it meant freedom for a house elf, right?
Uhhh. My bookish friends are tearing their eyes out right now.
Dropping in the bathtub?
Giving your favorite book a stunning bookmark lovingly made
by Puddle Jump Collective illustrators?
That is a beautiful way to thank a book.
And it will set you up for the ultimate way to thank a great book and the people who make them:
Read loudly. Read long.
Read in the car. Read on the train. Read and laugh. Read and weep.
Read and steep in every delicious word.
It's Children's Book Week.
Snatch your bookmarks.
Cut them on the dashes. Enjoy!
