For the love of books – free printable book plates!

I love to read and I have a ridiculously expanse library of unread books. However, there’s always a number of series I’m following at one time, so buying new books is still a requirement. I mean how can I not keep up to date on the latest and greatest by my favorite authors? Money has been exceedingly tight since the divorce and the library apparently hates my taste in fiction, so books are now a luxury when before they were a necessity. I’ve always bought new books, read them, then passed them on for others to enjoy though so I figure it’s karma that allowed me to find the funds to score a hardback recently. I am currently working my way through Pale Demon by Kim Harrison with much ensuing excitement. Remaining on my list are Bullet by Laurel K. Hamilton and River Marked by Patricia Briggs. Anyhow, I figured there are a million other fabulous, brilliant people out there who enjoy there books as much as I do, so I wanted to share some amazing free bookplates I found.
There are three funky and fun designs to take advantage of and all are available for free download from Orange You Lucky Blog. They aren’t laid out in any specific way and each file is individual but you could easily slap them into a program like OpenOffice, resize and set up a page to print a kaboodle of these suckers all at once. And on sticky paper nonetheless. I buy my sticker labels from OnlineLabels.com as I’ve found they have the best prices of anywhere.
While I know your library is probably in as much chaos as mine, remember that to keep your books and labels in order requires clean hands. And seeing as how this is a fantastic handmade soap blog, I’m going to recommend you check out my newly redesigned website, Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen. You can now order online right from website from someone who loves books as much as you. Check it out, and if you’re so inclined, let me know what you think of the new look! I’d also love to hear about your favorite new books and whether your home library is for stashing and saving or reading and sharing!
