Things You Didn’t Know About My Bookish Life #2

A little while back I was thinking about what kind of posts I wanted to make for the upcoming weeks. And I kept coming back to this ‘Things You Didn’t Know About My Bookish Life’. I love reading books and sharing them on my blog off course. But I thought it would be fun to share some other random bookish stuff about my life with you.

When I was growing up my mum would gift me books when something special would happen. For example when I got my swimming diploma, or got a good school report etc. And she would always write these messages inside the book at the first page. And I loved that! I always felt so special when I read those messages.

I still own almost all my children books, and I love looking through them and re-reading those messages. Sometimes I got books from my aunt and uncle, and they would write a short message in the book too. And the best thing about it to me is that I’ll always know when I got a book and for what occasion.

Obviously, for me as a reader.. all books are special. But the books with these short little message always feel extra special to me. 

Thank you mom! 

Check out my Things You Didn’t Know About My Bookish Life #1 post here! 


  1. My mom and dad were really interested inscribing the books they gave me as gifts. My mom still is. She is disappointed if others don't do the same with books given to her. :-) Those books really are special.

    1. They really are so special. And definitely a tradition we should continue :D

  2. That is such a good idea. I don't think I've ever gotten a book with an inscription from the giver before.

    1. It's really a fun way to gift someone books. And I love the way there will always be memories with those books.
