Read It Forward’s Kira Walton tells the story of her first bookplate and talks about why she loves them
“I’m not the kind of reader who hoards my books,” Kira admits. “I give them away all the time and don’t expect them back. I like to read it forward, after all!
It’s not about marking ownership of a book, not anymore. I use bookplates because they are a lovely, old-fashioned way of honoring the book. They remind me how much I like holding a book in my hand. And they mark time. I can travel my library and instantly know when a particular book came into my life by looking at the bookplate.”
