"She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain."
Louisa May Alcott
I hope this blog, Book Diva Books, will help foster a love of reading among those that discover it.
I have worked hard to create a culture of reading within my family. Several years ago, the Book Fairy (complete with English Accent, sparkling tiara and pink gossamer wings) started visiting our home. Later, she wanted a new look, and her friend, the Book Diva (who wears elbow length gloves, a lot of bling jewelry, carries a black feather boa and talks like Zsa Zsa Gabor) began visiting. Now, the Book Diva often sends the Bookaneer (who sports a fabulous red and black tutu and a custom made pirate hat) in her place.
I feel like a rock star when fifteen minutes later, mild-mannered Mom returns to see all five children curled up on our worn, comfy couch immersed in their Book Diva books!
The Book Diva gets books from bookstores, online bookstores, second hand stores, the library, and online used book stores. My closet is actually called “
” It does not matter where the book came from, it does not matter if it is new or a library book. The book talk creates excitement, as does the actual unwrapping of the gift. Book Diva Land.
