The Family Christmas Book Collection

Christmas is coming- we've had a little snow, carols are playing in every store, people are a little kinder to their neighbors. But for me the ultimate knowledge that the season is upon us is marked by one of my siblings carrying up the “Christmas box,” a gigantic appliance box circa 1982.

Anthologies for Pres(id)ents!

An anthology is basically the perfect middle way of gifts. Halfway between a specific book (maybe they love this author and will love the book and haven't read it before! But also maybe not) and a gift card (you know they love Northshire and reading and books. You're just not exactly sure which ones).

Buying for Kids Who Don’t Read

Shopping in the bookstore for a child who doesn’t enjoy reading can be very stressful for parents, especially book-loving parents. You might think it’s impossible for parents who love books to raise reluctant readers, but trust me, it’s possible. The following are my guidelines for helping parents select books for a child who “doesn’t read.”

Book Preservation Essentials

Tucked away in attics, basements, barns and storage units are countless bound volumes of prized ephemera. School texts, journals and diaries, long out of print books and antiquated family bibles, filled with the now-defunct practice of documenting genealogy and family history are retained, out of sight but not out of mind. Rarely are these family heirlooms pulled out of storage, but those who own them take comfort in knowing that they are there. Sadly, these books are typically not cared for as well as they deserve.
