As I said in my post yesterday, I’m going to give a little post on my other blogs. There’s only a slight correction: through playing around on wordpress, I found the option to import my blog posts (reviews, etc.) from my tumblr blog. I only did this with my primary blog. My other blog, titled From Inside The Pages, I left in order to keep those posts separate from my reviews given their different nature. The purpose of this alternate blog is simple: sharing things I’ve found in the books I obtain. As of now this isn’t including any winning books from giveaways since they are bound to have little messages or an occasional bookmark. It would be too easy to post those and become boring quite quickly. Also I have many more interesting pictures and posts to add when I get around to it. I was going strong with a few a week then slowly got lazy. That’ll change soon, as this blog will pick up activity soon. For now here’s the first post from From Inside The Pages to explain it’s inspiration and aim. For more just click here
“A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the website http://bookinscriptions.com/. In the site’s “About The Project” section, the inspiration for the project of the site is explained as well as how to help further the project. In short the point of the project is to create a collection of messages written in books.
This idea appealed to me right away. Ever since my collection of books began to grow, I tended to enjoy reading what was written in books by the people who once owned them. In a way it’s a window into the past, but also a window into the books life and travels.
With my love of used books and what they’ve been through, along with the finding of the Book Inscriptions Project’s website, I decided to create a blog that follows a similar reasoning for being.
“From Inside The Pages” is a place to find what I have found in books. That’s fairly simple to figure out. It will be a collection of pictures of business cards, letters, receipts, and anything else that I’ve found in the books I’ve bought.
If those reading this have anything to add to this assortment feel free to post or email me with a picture of your find or just share your thoughts on this blog or books in general. “
