Packing the first day's books for shipment

Go then, my little Book, and show to all
That entertain and bid thee welcome shall,
What thou dost keep close shut up in thy breast;
And wish what thou dost show them may be blest
To them for good, may make them choose to be
Pilgrims better, by far, than thee or me.

Louise May Alcott, from the preface to Little Women

Celebrating a wonderful first week for Lanier’s Books and all the book children en route to new homes. Thank you for making our launch such an overwhelming success! And you can look for new titles in the Bookshop next week!

    Ooooh! How I would love to order a book just to get a beautiful parcel like that. I have in mind a particular title but it isn’t yet on your list. But I shall just wait and see if it arrives. πŸ™‚ In the meantime, congratulations.

    Lanier, I just LOVE my new book! I’ve already decided that if (and when) I ever get some hens, the first one will be named ‘Miss Read’! I can just hear the chatter ‘over the gate’ … Thank You!!

    Are you planning to make a little button-thingy for bloggie-friends to pop in their sidebars? Because if you ARE, I’d love to sign up … πŸ™‚
