Plates for books

What, oh what to give for the holidays?  Something that demonstrates economic responsibility but doesn’t feel repressive; something fun yet with substance; something personal but not icky.

A book?  Maybe even a signed one?

If that’s your choice, here’s for you: bookplates, of three flavors: with the cover of The Language of Bees or The Beekeeper’s Apprentice–

Beekeeper's Apprentice small

–or just  plain vanilla signed plates, with no specific book.

They’re yours, free, gratis, and without charge, if you send a self-addressed stamped envelope, with a note saying which of the three you’d like, to:

Laurie King

PO Box 1152

Freedom, CA 95019

Are you a bookstore owner/employee, or do you just love your local bookstore?  If so, we’ve put together bookstore packets of signed bookplates—and for stores, we’ll even pay the postage, how’s that for a deal?

For the store packets, just go here or else email me with the store’s address and a contact name at: and I’ll rush them to you.

And—happy holiday reading!
