Gifts for the Well Read

Are you looking for a sweet and thoughtful gift for your favorite bookworm?

I recommend these bookmarks by Woodland Expressions.  They feel great in your hand, look fine in a book and are handmade in North Carolina.

Chuck Merriwether hand planes walnut and cherry woods and uses a power scroll saw to hand cut over 30 silhouetted designs. The feel of these bookmarks is satisfying. My personal favorites are the sea turtle, owl, seahorse, and maple leaf designs.

Bookmarks can be ordered online or selected in person at Flyleaf Books, The Regulator Bookshop, Purple Crow Books, Quail Ridge Books and Music and at other fine purveyors of books and accessories.
