The Book Fairies are celebrating #pride today! This copy of Days Without End by Sebastian Barry was dropped in Fernie today! 🌈 . 📚About the book: Thomas McNulty, aged barely seventeen and having fled the Great Famine in Ireland, signs up for the U.S. Army in the 1850s. With his brother in arms, John Cole, Thomas goes on to fight in the Indian Wars—against the Sioux and the Yurok—and, ultimately, the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, the men find these days to be vivid and alive, despite the horrors they see and are complicit in. Moving from the plains of Wyoming to Tennessee, Sebastian Barry’s latest work is a masterpiece of atmosphere and language. An intensely poignant story of two men and the makeshift family they create with a young Sioux girl, Winona, Days Without End is a fresh and haunting portrait of the most fateful years in American history and is a novel never to be forgotten. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram #readallthebooks #pride #pridemonth #pride2019 #bookfairieswithpride Смотреть полностью

Who was the finder in Newfoundland? 💚 . 📚About the book: Darwin's theory of natural selection issued a profound challenge to orthodox thought and belief: no being or species has been specifically created; all are locked into a pitiless struggle for existence, with extinction looming for those not fitted for the task. Yet The Origin of Species (1859) is also a humane and inspirational vision of ecological interrelatedness, revealing the complex mutual interdependencies between animal and plant life, climate and physical environment, and - by implication - within the human world. Written for the general reader, in a style which combines the rigour of science with the subtlety of literature, The Origin of Species remains one of the founding documents of the modern age. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram #readallthebooks Смотреть полностью

This book was chosen for the #fairybookclub for April/May 2019... join us as we read our way around the world 🌎 a new book chosen by country each time! A Book Fairy left a copy for a lucky reader on Main Street today! 📚 #repost from @youasamachine It’s the 15th of the month which is the day to drop books from the #fairybookclub . I left this copy of Brick Lane by Bangladeshi 🇧🇩 author Monica Ali at @hayanmug on Main Street. 📚 About the book: A captivating read from a debut novelist, Brick Lane brings the immigrant milieu of East London to vibrant life. With great poignancy, Ali illuminates a foreign world; her well-developed characters pull readers along on a deeply psychological, almost spiritual journey. Through the eyes of two Bangladeshi sisters—the plain Nazneen and the prettier Hasina—we see the divergent paths of the contemporary descendants of an ancient culture. Hasina elopes to a "love marriage," and young Nazneen, in an arranged marriage, is pledged to a much older man living in London. Ali's skillful narrative focuses on Nazneen's stifling life with her ineffectual husband, who keeps her imprisoned in a city housing project filled with immigrants in varying degrees of assimilation. But Ali reveals a bittersweet tension between the "two kinds of love" Nazneen and her sister experience—that which begins full and overflowing, only to slowly dissipate, and another which emerges like a surprise, growing unexpectedly over years of faithful commitment. Both of these loves have their own pitfalls: Hasina's passionate romance crumbles into domestic violence, and Nazneen's marriage never quite reaches a state of wedded bliss. Though comparisons have drawn between Ali and Zadie Smith, a better comparison might be made between this talented newcomer and the work of Amy Tan, who so deftly portrays the immigrant experience with empathy and joy. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfaries #monicaali #bricklane #fairybookclubdrop #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #vancouver #britishcolumbia #canada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread Смотреть полностью

Birds Without Wings by Louis de Bernières was left at Pūr Movement in Richmond today, also...it’s always fun to be able to leave more than one... 📚 Many thx to our book donors for sharing their once loved books and allowing us to spread the joy of reading by way of magic and fairy dust. 📚 Thx @earnesteverafter for this beautiful edition 💚 About the book: In his first novel since Corelli’s Mandolin, Louis de Bernières creates a world, populates it with characters as real as our best friends, and launches it into the maelstrom of twentieth-century history. The setting is a small village in southwestern Anatolia in the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. Everyone there speaks Turkish, though they write it in Greek letters. It’s a place that has room for a professional blasphemer; where a brokenhearted aga finds solace in the arms of a Circassian courtesan who isn’t Circassian at all; where a beautiful Christian girl named Philothei is engaged to a Muslim boy named Ibrahim. But all of this will change when Turkey enters the modern world. Epic in sweep, intoxicating in its sensual detail, Birds Without Wings is an enchantment. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #richmond #birdswithoutwings #louisdebernieres #earnesteverafter #pūrmovement Смотреть полностью

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi was left by the monument at Broadway Plaza next to Tractor - in Vancouver. 📚 Thx to @earnesteverafter for donating this brilliant book! 💚 About the book: Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #americanah #chimamandangoziadichie #feminist Смотреть полностью

Let us know if you’ve found this book —as you’ll get to read it before it becomes available to the masses in August!! 📚 @Regrann from @youasamachine - As promised, here’s the second copy of Knock Wood by Jennifer Militello! I left this spectacular memoir at the Broadway Plaza monument next to Tractor on this equally spectacularly sunny day! 📚 Thx to @dzancbooks for sending me two advance copies of the book to read & review and then leave for lucky readers to find!! 📚 About the book: Winner of the 2018 Dzanc Nonfiction Prize In Knock Wood, the first nonfiction collection by award-winning poet Jennifer Militello, a knock on wood to ward off illness sets in motion a chain of events and memories that call into question the very structure of time. Anchored by a wooden ring, Militello explores her life through the lens of three intertwined elements: the story of a mentally ill aunt in an abusive marriage; a high school romance with a boy who eventually dies of a heroin overdose; and an extra-marital affair characterized by an otherworldly connection. Cause and effect reverse as significant events―an arrest for a felony committed in high school, a trip by train to meet an illicit lover, and a suicide attempt on those same New York tracks―seem to influence one another outside of time and space. As Militello delicately threads each memory to the next, she explores the themes of family damage and the precarious ties of love. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #feminist #jennifermilitello #poetry #memoir #nonfiction #dzancbooks Смотреть полностью

Celebrating #bookfairiesinbloom in Calgary! A copy of A Gift from the Sea is hiding in Edgemont. 🌸 . 📚About the book: In this inimitable, beloved classic—graceful, lucid and lyrical—Anne Morrow Lindbergh shares her meditations on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment as she set them down during a brief vacation by the sea. Drawing inspiration from the shells on the shore, Lindbergh’s musings on the shape of a woman’s life bring new understanding to both men and women at any stage of life. A mother of five, an acclaimed writer and a pioneering aviator, Lindbergh casts an unsentimental eye on the trappings of modernity that threaten to overwhelm us: the time-saving gadgets that complicate rather than simplify, the multiple commitments that take us from our families. And by recording her thoughts during a brief escape from everyday demands, she helps readers find a space for contemplation and creativity within their own lives. With great wisdom and insight Lindbergh describes the shifting shapes of relationships and marriage, presenting a vision of life as it is lived in an enduring and evolving partnership. A groundbreaking, best-selling work when it was originally published in 1955, Gift from the Sea continues to be discovered by new generations of readers. With a new introduction by Lindbergh’s daughter Reeve, this fiftieth-anniversary edition will give those who are revisiting the book and those who are coming upon it for the first time fresh insight into the life of this remarkable woman. The sea and the beach are elements that have been woven throughout Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s life. She spent her childhood summers with her family on a Maine island. After her marriage to Charles Lindbergh in 1929, she accompanied him on his survey flights around the North Atlantic to launch the first transoceanic airlines. The Lindberghs eventually established a permanent home on the Connecticut coast, where they lived quietly, wrote books and raised their family. After the children left home for lives of their own, the Lindberghs traveled extensively to Africa and the Pacific for environmental research. #ibelieveinbookfairies Смотреть полностью

Book drop in downtown Peterborough for anyone curious about what makes Canadians, well Canadian. 🇨🇦 Celtic Lightning by Ken McGoogan offers some insights! 🇨🇦 . 📚About the book: Canadian roots and identity: Who do we think we are? He argues that Canadians have never investigated the demographic reality that informs this book—the fact that more than nine million Canadians claim Scottish or Irish heritage. McGoogan writes that, to understand who we are and where we are going, Canadians must look to cultural genealogy. He builds on the work of Richard Dawkins, who contends that ideas and values (“memes”) can be transmitted from one generation to another. Scottish and Irish immigrants arrived in Canada with values they had learned from their forebears. And they did so early enough, and in sufficient numbers, to shape an emerging Canadian nation. McGoogan highlights five of the values they imported as foundational: independence, audacity, democracy, pluralism and perseverance. He shows that these values are thriving in contemporary Canada, and traces their evolution through the lives of thirty prominent individuals—heroes, rebels, poets, inventors, pirate queens—who played formative roles in the histories of Scotland and Ireland. Two charged traditions came together and gave rise to a Canadian nation. That is when Celtic lightning struck. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #peterborough #ontario #canada #canadian #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram #readallthebooks #canadianauthor #kenmcgoogan Смотреть полностью

Show us which book(s) you’ve got planned for this long weekend. A Book Fairy in Vancouver is reading The Fairy Tale Museum by local author Susannah M. Smith. Sound on to hear the garden sounds in the second photo 🐦🎶 💚 @regrann from @youasamachine #thisbookfairyisreading and using #shareyourfirstpage 📚 About the book: Fiction. Structured as a series of interconnected galleries, THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM is a curiosity-cabinet-as-novel that showcases the original, spectacular, grotesque, endearing, and otherworldly. You'll meet bird-headed lovers, a cyborg cyclops, a fortune teller, revolutionary ventriloquists' dummies, a narcoleptic vampire, Eros and Thanatos, and a host of woodland creatures. This is a book that celebrates hybrids, creativity, and transformation--a manifesto against putting ourselves into boxes that limit who we can be and what is possible. "THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM has more in common with installation art than with any traditional literary genres... [this book is] an exercise in encouraging creativity."--Rain Taxi "In THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM, Susannah M. Smith has crafted a world as seemingly scenic and romantic as a snow globe--except this world can break, it can draw blood, and it can transform. This is a beautiful book, its beauty only deepened by its bite."--Derek McCormack "In Susannah M. Smith's fantastical, moody folkloric menagerie, you can wander slowly and savour, or leap randomly between surprising exhibits. Part Brothers Grimm and part Doktor Bey, part novel and part poem, THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM is a moving, exquisite sensory experience. This is an exciting book."--Stuart Ross 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #readthenorth #susannahmsmith #thefairytalemuseum #invisiblepublishing #invisibooks Смотреть полностью

In celebration of Independent Authors worldwide on May 11, this copy of #in dieauthor Daryl R. Stennett’s Behind The Steam was left at 🇫🇷Plaisir Sucré 🇫🇷 💚 About the book: Behind the Steam is the only complete account of a Vancouver icon, the Gastown Steam Clock. Author Daryl Stennett recounts the humour, the pain, and the joy of ordinary people who toiled with extraordinary commitment through design errors, construction mistakes, vandalism, and accidents. The idea for a steam clock nearly turned to water when the clockmakers of the day declared that “clocks and steam don’t mix!” Then, beset by disdain from artistic critics, anxiety over financial shortages, and the immutable laws of mechanics, the unique concept almost didn’t make it out of the workshop.

At a place where like minded creatives go to get supplies to build great works big or small, there awaits Behind The Steam: The Inside Story Of The Gastown Steam Clock by Daryl R.Stennett. 📚 At Dunbar Lumber Supply along the Arbutus Greenway 📚 About the book: Behind the Steam is the only complete account of a Vancouver icon, the Gastown Steam Clock. Author Daryl Stennett recounts the humour, the pain, and the joy of ordinary people who toiled with extraordinary commitment through design errors, construction mistakes, vandalism, and accidents. The idea for a steam clock nearly turned to water when the clockmakers of the day declared that “clocks and steam don’t mix!” Then, beset by disdain from artistic critics, anxiety over financial shortages, and the immutable laws of mechanics, the unique concept almost didn’t make it out of the workshop. Behind the Steam digs deep to reveal the story of how this clock broke the rules and found fame if not fortune. Illustrated by anecdotes, sidebars, and 177 images, the steam clock saga comes alive on the page, grabbing your attention and not letting go until the last anecdote is read… 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #dunbarlumber #darylrstennett #behindthesteam #gastownsteamclock Смотреть полностью

A lucky reader can find a copy of #indieauthor Vicky Nolan’s Scrapbook of an Unfound Songstress at The Bloomerie today!! 📚 About the book: You're a 15-year-old schoolgirl who has big dreams of becoming a pop star, and then one day you get your lucky break. Polydor records sends you to Copenhagen to make pop music - to make you a recording artist. You get back home and your future is looking brighter than ever - until the High Court writ hits the door mat - you've fallen out with your management and they have decided to sue. No, this isn't a dream, this is now Vicky Nolan's reality and fast becoming a nightmare, and all while still at school at the sweet age of sixteen. Read about the trial, the family, Hollywood, London town, the glamour, the dog (eh?) and most importantly, the music. Curiouser and curiouser? We always talk about 'making it' and fulfilling your dreams. The question is, what if you don't? What happens next? Ultimately, this book speaks about life and family; its hopes and disappointments, its ups and downs. Scrapbook of an Unfound Songstress is in some way a story that speaks to us all, because in the end, the best stories are always true. "I'm living my life as consequence of yesterday. And all of my choices compliment my life today. There may have been times I could have gone and lost my way, I could have, I would have, I should have, I don't care - I'm here now."

A signed copy of The Fairy Tale Museum by Susannah M.Smith was left in a relatively new, incredibly well stocked, Little Free Library at the corner of Balaclava St. & W. King Edward. 📚 Thx to Invisible Publishing for donating six copies of this book! 📚 About the book: Fiction. Structured as a series of interconnected galleries, THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM is a curiosity-cabinet-as-novel that showcases the original, spectacular, grotesque, endearing, and otherworldly. You'll meet bird-headed lovers, a cyborg cyclops, a fortune teller, revolutionary ventriloquists' dummies, a narcoleptic vampire, Eros and Thanatos, and a host of woodland creatures. This is a book that celebrates hybrids, creativity, and transformation--a manifesto against putting ourselves into boxes that limit who we can be and what is possible. "THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM has more in common with installation art than with any traditional literary genres... [this book is] an exercise in encouraging creativity."--Rain Taxi "In THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM, Susannah M. Smith has crafted a world as seemingly scenic and romantic as a snow globe--except this world can break, it can draw blood, and it can transform. This is a beautiful book, its beauty only deepened by its bite."--Derek McCormack "In Susannah M. Smith's fantastical, moody folkloric menagerie, you can wander slowly and savour, or leap randomly between surprising exhibits. Part Brothers Grimm and part Doktor Bey, part novel and part poem, THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM is a moving, exquisite sensory experience. This is an exciting book."--Stuart Ross 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #sharebooks #bc #britishcolumbia #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #susannahmsmith #thefairytalemuseum #littlefreelibrary Смотреть полностью

A book drop at the Scandinavian Home Restaurant (The Scand!) in Thunder Bay. Horrible Harry and the Dungeon by Suzy Kline is waiting for its next reader. 💚 . 📚About the book: All the kids from Room 2B are on fire to get their first glimpse of the school's mysterious new teacher, Mr. Skooghammer. With a name like that and a job as the head of the Dungeon (a.k.a. the Suspension Room), it's no wonder everyone's interested in Mr. Skooghammer--and even more interested to see whether or not Harry will become his first prisoner. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #thunderbay #ontario #thescand #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram #readallthebooks Смотреть полностью

Heads up Vancouver!! Check out what @bookfairies_vancouver has in store for you!💚 . . ・・・ We’ve got six SIGNED copies of The FairyTale Museum by Susannah M. Smith. 💚 Look for some during #bookfairiesinbloom 📚 Thanks to Invisible Publishing @invisibooks for the books!! 💚 About the book: Fiction. Structured as a series of interconnected galleries, THE FAIRY TALE MUSEUM is a curiosity-cabinet-as-novel that showcases the original, spectacular, grotesque, endearing, and otherworldly. You'll meet bird-headed lovers, a cyborg cyclops, a fortune teller, revolutionary ventriloquists' dummies, a narcoleptic vampire, Eros and Thanatos, and a host of woodland creatures. This is a book that celebrates hybrids, creativity, and transformation--a manifesto against putting ourselves into boxes that limit who we can be and what is possible.

That’s right fairies, #bookfairiesinbloom is back! Due to the amazing response last year, this time we want the celebration to continue for more than a weekend...so we’re dropping books near flowers throughout the months of May and June! 🌺 Book Fairies in Bloom encourages book fairies and book hunters around the world to head to their nearest park or green space… where books may be hidden! 🌳 Why not reach out to your local park groups to see if they’d like to join you as book fairies for the day? Or simply find a beautiful tree, bench or flowerbed to hide a special book! 🌻 Remember to use #bookfairiesinbloom and #ibelieveinbookfairies when you are hiding your books, and maybe include a few sentences about the park - perhaps it has history! We cannot wait to discover these beautiful green spaces and see all the book treasures you drop! Please SHARE THIS PIC if you’re joining us 💚 #instabooks #bookstagram #bookfairies #thebookfairies #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #readallthebooks Смотреть полностью

Looking For Normal by Karen Harmon is waiting for a lucky reader at the York Mills Second Cup for #WorldBookDay #ibelieveinbookfairies #WorldBookFairies #lookingfornormal . About the book: It's been said that we cannot choose our family members, but what do you do when the drama they bring becomes more than you want to deal with? You hop on the train that will take you to the land of promise, an alluring place across the mountains, called British Columbia. Looking for Normal is an account of two people, each struggling to leave the desperate and dysfunctional circumstances of life, to establish themselves in a completely different environment and location. It is a sometimes humorous, sometimes sobering, yet always intriguing true story of family drama, and love found in the midst of heartache, addiction, and mental illness. It takes us through the Depression Era of the 1930s, on through the War and Post-War years of the 1940s and '50s, to the Free Love of the 1960s and '70s. Against all odds, Vincent and Frances find each other in the land of promise, and begin the adventure of creating a new and better family experience, one filled with laughter, hope, and undying love. They find that family is not far behind, and through each new adventure of dysfunction, they create a lasting legacy of strength, hope, and love within their own children. This is a heartwarming true story that will encourage all of us to look on the lighter side and enjoy all that life brings, to treasure our family regardless of the struggles. . . #autobiography #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiestoronto #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread Смотреть полностью

A copy of The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware was left at Caffè Artigiano in Kerrisdale! 📚 Thx @katharos08 for donating this great book!! 📚 Do let us know if you’re the lucky finder! 💚 About the book: Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first, Lo's stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo's desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #igreads #thewomanincabin10 #igbooks #instareads #ruthware #caffeartigiano Смотреть полностью

When the Moon is Low by Nadia Hashimi was left at the new home of Moderne Burger: Burgerette 📚 About the book: Mahmoud's passion for his wife Fereiba, a schoolteacher, is greater than any love she's ever known. But their happy, middle-class world—a life of education, work, and comfort—implodes when their country is engulfed in war, and the Taliban rises to power. In Kabul, we meet Fereiba, a schoolteacher who puts her troubled childhood behind her when she finds love in an arranged marriage. But Fereiba's comfortable life implodes when the Taliban rises to power and her family becomes a target of the new fundamentalist regime. Forced to flee with her three children, Fereiba has one hope for survival: to seek refuge with her sister's family in London. Traveling with forged papers and depending on the kindness of strangers, Fereiba and the children make a dangerous crossing into Iran under cover of darkness, the start of a harrowing journey that reduces her from a respected wife and mother to a desperate refugee. Eventually they fall into the shadowy underground network of the undocumented who haunt the streets of Europe's cities. And then, in a busy market square in Athens, their fate takes a frightening turn when Fereiba's teenage son, Saleem, becomes separated from the rest of the family. Without his mother, Saleem is forced, abruptly and unforgivingly, to come of age in a world of human trafficking and squalid refugee camps. Heartbroken, Fereiba has no choice but to continue on with only her daughter and baby. Mother and son cross border after perilous border, risking their lives in the hope of finding a place where they can be reunited. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #nadiahashimi #whenthemoonislow #moderneburger #burgerette Смотреть полностью

At the beautifully manicured corner garden oasis of the Birch Book Exchange at 8th Ave & Birch a lucky reader or two will find a copy of Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt donated from @nanniesoncallcanada and The Passion Of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland donated from @earnesteverafter 📚💚📚 About the books: 💚📚💚 Scaredy Squirrel never leaves his nut tree. It's way too dangerous out there. He could encounter tarantulas, green Martians or killer bees. But in his tree, every day is the same and if danger comes along, he's well-prepared. Scaredy Squirrel's emergency kit includes antibacterial soap, Band-Aids and a parachute. Day after day he watches and waits, and waits and watches, until one day ? his worst nightmare comes true! Scaredy suddenly finds himself out of his tree, where germs, poison ivy and sharks lurk. But as Scaredy Squirrel leaps into the unknown, he discovers something really uplifting ? The Passion Of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland From extraordinary highs - patronage by the Medicis, friendship with Galileo and, most importantly of all, beautiful and outstandingly original paintings - to rape by her father's colleague, torture by the Inquisition, life-long struggles for acceptance by the artistic Establishment, and betrayal by the men she loved, Artemisia was a bold and brilliant woman who lived as she wanted, and paid a high price. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #donatedbooks #nanniesoncallcanada #earnesteverafter #susanvreeland #thepassionofartemisia #melaniewatt #scaredysquirrel Смотреть полностью

This book-finder was so delighted to have found a copy of A Girl Like That by @bhathenatanaz (from @raincoastbooks ) during our FIRST Birthday Anniversary Month last year 2018 that they kept us in mind when it was time to shrink their personal bookshelf...wanting others to be equally enchanted with the opportunity to find a book. 📚💚 Thank you for this beautiful and varied collection of donated books!! . We will enjoy hiding them on your behalf @katharos08 and look forward to all the bookfound posts💚 . 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #donatedbooks Смотреть полностью
The Book Fairies Canada A note from our newest Book Fairy who dropped a children’s book ever
Port Moody, British Columbia

A note from our newest Book Fairy who dropped a children’s book every day this week: seven spectacular books left in equally amazing locations!! 💚 Thank you!! 📚 @Regrann from @jenniferpownallauthor - I have had such a fun time leaving free children's books across the Lower Mainland this week. Thank you to Book Fairies and to Zuri Scrivens ( @zuriwriting ), who brought my attention to this wonderful project by earning her wings first. I will definitely be doing this again in the future, but for now the last drop can be found on the pier at Rocky Point in Port Moody as of 9:45am. ❤ 📚 Nannies on Call have donated four copies of Scaredy Squirrel to leave around Vancouver for the month of April! A Book Fairy had left one in Port Moody on the pier at Rocky Point. 📚 Let the Book Fairies know if you are a lucky finder! 💚 About the book: Scaredy Squirrel never leaves his nut tree. It's way too dangerous out there. He could encounter tarantulas, green Martians or killer bees. But in his tree, every day is the same and if danger comes along, he's well-prepared. Scaredy Squirrel's emergency kit includes antibacterial soap, Band-Aids and a parachute. Day after day he watches and waits, and waits and watches, until one day his worst nightmare comes true! Scaredy suddenly finds himself out of his tree, where germs, poison ivy and sharks lurk. But as Scaredy Squirrel leaps into the unknown, he discovers something really uplifting. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #portmoody #bc #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #childrenslit #kidslit #scaredysquirrel #melaniewatt Смотреть полностью

The Art of Tea by Osho is waiting at Mandy’s downtown Montreal! 🍵 📚About the book: Using the ancient Zen tea ceremony, Osho demonstrate the relationship between relaxation, alertness, and meditation. A cup of tea is the most ordinary thing in the world, yet Zen changes this ordinary thing into an extraordinary experience. Here, Osho shows how the art of tea is a form of meditation, telling Zen stories and anecdotes to explain the basic concepts behind the tea ceremony and the original purpose in the Zen tradition of each element of this gracious and refreshing way to gather together with friends. In addition, there are several simple exercises and meditation techniques to bring new vitality to the senses, to promote relaxation, and to enhance the appreciation of the simple pleasures of life. A practical section at the end of the book gives an overview of the different varieties of teas and what criteria to use in selecting them, plus a list of common herbal tea ingredients and their benefits. The book is illustrated with forty pages of color. #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #theartoftea #osho #montreal #quebec #mandys #downtownmontreal #booksofinstagram #instaread #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #mustread #bookstagram #readallthebooks #livredinstagram #instalire #pourlamourdelire #iglivre #lecteuresdinsta #bibliophile #livre #livres #goodreads #bookish Смотреть полностью
The Book Fairies Vancouver Our newest Book Fairy is out and about, as promised...look for a child
Port Coquitlam, British Columbia

Our newest Book Fairy is out and about, as promised...look for a children’s book everyday this week!! Today, find Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. . A message from the author: “My regular publisher felt that it was not really a kid’s book and I ended up doing it with another publisher. One day the publisher called up and said “This is very strange. It is selling very well in retirement communities in Arizona. It is selling in retirement communities where kids are illegal. This is supposed to be a children’s book. What is going on?” “Grownups are buying it for grownups!” In fact, it turned out that parents buy it for grandparents and grandparents buy it for parents and kids buy it for everybody and everybody buys it for kids. As a matter of fact, everybody buys it for everybody. That’s why it sells a lot of copies. I think it’s my best book. So far it has sold about 15,000,000 copies.” 💚💚💚 @Regrann from @jenniferpownallauthor - Day 2 of 7 - I left this well-known kid's book at Shaughnessy Pop-Up Park in Port Coquitlam at 11:30am. 📚 Do let us know if you are a lucky finder! 💚 About the book: An extraordinarily different story by Robert Munsch is a gentle affirmation of the love a parent feels for their child--forever. Sheila McGraw's soft and colorful pastels perfectly complement the sentiment of the book--one that will be read repeatedly for years. 📚 #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairy #bookfairies #thebookfairies #bookfairiesvancouver #bookfairiesbritishcolumbia #bookfairiescanada #sharebooks #booksofinstagram #fortheloveofereading #igbooks #bibliophile #bookworm #mustread #vancouver #childrenslit #kidslit #loveyouforever #robertmunsch Смотреть полностью
