Today is the auspicious 11.11.11
According to an enchanting friend and poet Jane Griffin, this is the day of unlost things, whatever happens in this day remains.
To celebrate, wild & grace are opening the cyber doors of its unconventional library to Aotearoa.

A full inventory of wild & grace’s small but enthusiastic collection will appear over the month of November, but to be the metaphor of trumpets playing a fanfare, follows Emily’s (trumpets on a hilltop please)

book reviews?
You will be able to read some reviews of books I have read (which may or may not be in the wild & grace library). These reviews are fairly non self-conscious (i.e. not deliberated over).

what else may you want to know?
wild & grace unconventional library operates online only, so you search for your books through a list and I post it to you and then you post it back in the pre-paid bag I provide.

why start an unconventional library?
I have just finished The Art of Non-Conformity. One of my dreams is to host a delicious library full of inspirational books something of the flavour of two New Zealand boutique booksellers – Pathfinder Bookshop and Unity Books stirred together. This delicious library dream is all enclosed in the bigger dream of hosting an unconventional ‘university’/learning centre with a herb garden, tea house and view of the sea.
The thought unravelled as I read Chris Guillebeau’s paragraphs that I can start right away. Start this library right away. I have great great books, and you are great great people, who I’d love to share these great great words and ideas with.
So there and here we are.

A reminder…
