This book of haikus is a celebration of books themselves, and of libraries and reading and all of the feelings that come with them. This is a book that you ensure you read in your favorite reading spot so that you can be mindful of what makes the experience so meaningful to you as the author does the same through poetry. The accompanying photos frame the setting of each haiku, and further draw you into the mind of the author as she muses with you. Together, you and the author help each other to appreciate the power of the written word.
This was a Goodreads.com give away. My first copy did not arrive for some reason and the author was kind enough to send me a replacement at her expense. I'm grateful. Gregori is a librarian who writes library/book themed haikus. Each page has an artistic photograph and one haikus. Fans of the poems themselves can find many more on Gregori's website. Being a former library employee, I can appreciate her feelings about dog ear pages and children with crayons. Lovers of books and libraries will enjoy this one. It would make a handsome gift.
A very well put together book, filled with wonderful haikus, ranging from touching to down-right funny! Many of them I found I could personally relate to! I highly recommend taking a look at this book - it's sure to put a smile on your face!
