Where Do You Keep Your Books?

Most of us carry our books with us at times, so we have them in our hands or in our cars or briefcases or purses.

This entry looks at some of the ways we store, use, and have fun with books. I had a good time looking at images and hope you have some fun with them too.  I am trying to figure out how to make a poll with these images and so wish me luck and it will change the entry.

We also have to recall that a book is technology, too.

As well as how we store them.

Blooks

Blooks are explored by a great news article from CBS News and about things that look like books. The curator Mindell Dubansky (Mindy)  was a preservation librarian at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and now has a show at Grolier’s for people who love books— Book Looking = Blooks! — but are not books. From a selection of 600 blooks she has spy tools, cooking, sewing boxes and camera books. She also has information on her blog About Blooks.
