I have a package of bookplates that sit in my dresser drawer. It is not an item I use with any sort of frequency, but I have recently encountered a book worthy of a bookplate sticker. By marking this book as ex libris, I am specifying that: the novel was thought provoking and engrossing;the author … Continue reading Bookplate Worthy: A Review of The Midnight Library
