The Book Inscriptions Project

When I worked at the library I often attended the Friends of the Library’s semiannual book sales looking for like new books we could use as incentives for the summer reading program.  I was always saddened just a bit to find books with heartfelt inscriptions in the sale.  They spoke to me because someone had purchased a gift with the recipient’s interests in mind, and the next thing you know, the gift has been tossed away.

The Book Inscriptions Project is collecting such books I suspect for the very same reason.  The originator of the project found a book with a personal and intimate inscription and couldn’t help but wonder about the people involved and the circumstances surrounding the gift and its subsequent rejection.

I normally don’t mix politics with this blog, but this was too funny not to include.
