Book Forests, Commandments, and Voracious Readers

Posted on

This past week, I’ve run across a few pretty cool things, and I wanted to let you all in on these catches:

Have you heard about the ridiculously awesome Book Forest book swap in Berlin?  The Book Forest combines two of my favorite things — books and nature! 🙂  It’s a book swap set up by BauFachFrau Berlin that is arranged to look like actual trees clustered together.  Each tree has a few cut-outs that function as shelves.  Apparently, it was originally supposed to be a temporary installation, but the community loved it so much that they couldn’t part with it.

Check out’s The Ten Commandments of a Righteous Readerly Life.  Number one is my favorite, but I won’t list it here, or I would be breaking Commandment #10, “Thou shalt not spoil.”

Goodreads is up to 20 million reviews.  The community of voracious readers is expanding rapidly!  Check out the original post on the Goodreads blog here.
