As you are all aware, today is Independence Day in the US. It’s so neat to see all the patriotic bookish posts! You guys are so creative! I also was touched to see international friends paying tribute to our holiday. I know a lot of international holidays get missed (Happy late Canada to my Canadian peeps!), but your well wishes are truly appreciated.
Here’s my attempt at a bit of a holiday-themed post. I tried to create a bookish flag. After seeing everyone’s else bookish 4th of July post, I realized I could’ve done this a lot different! Oh, well! It’s the sentiment that counts, right?
I also thought it was fitting to include this tote I got from Y’all West. I was lucky to meet Justine from @appraisingpages and fell in love with this tote. I thought it was perfect for today’s holiday—freedom for all!
I also wanted to mention that my friend Amy @ladyofthelibrary is having a Harry Potter themed giveaway with items from fellow bookstagrammers who own small businesses. One of Katy’s @katyslibrary dreamcatchers and a set of Asma’s @oasisgirlmd HP magnetic bookmarks are just some of the prizes included. All you have to do is post a picture of a bookish obsession. Mine are bookish totes! Haha. Check out the tag #lotlhpgiveaway. (Amy! This is not an entry! Just wanted to promote your contest #booktwin!)
Also, my dear friends at Owlcrate @owlcrate are having their rep search. If selected, you get to rep for them for three months and each month you will be sent an Owlcrate box.
