Making Your Books a Bit More Personal
I love getting lost in the fresh, crisp pages of a brand new book. I’ve worked over the last several years to build a nice library of special hardcover books, and wanted them to have special designation showing how I acquired them – whether they came as a gift from a friend or relative, or I found them in a unique bookstore or on a trip somewhere. So, I decided the best way to add that special information was to label the inside cover. I was hesitant to insert my scribbly, scrawling handwriting with a permanent pen and decided instead to make stickers that have my name and left just a simple line where I could write in the date that I either got the book or read it, and a line for another special notation. As a bonus, if I ever loan the books out, the borrower always knows where to return them – perfect for book clubs!
From that initial idea, I’ve expanded out to books that I give other people. My favorite go-to graduation gift is “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss, and these labels are just perfect to place inside the front cover with the date of graduation and the graduate’s name. They’ll remember that special occasion each time they open the book.
Our friends at How About Orange have a great template that you can download from their site and then upload using the FedEx Office Design & Print Center (did you get all that tech lingo, download then upload?). Labels for books can be printed in large quantities for a low price (140 for $16.99), so you’ll always have them available for your own books and books you’re giving as gifts.
Here’s to some happy reading!
