Books Worth Treasuring + Giveaway

Did you know that The Folio Society takes classic books and prints them with only the best covers, paper and illustrations? They are keepsakes! Something you want to have on your shelf to not only show off, but enjoy. These are the kind of books that you want in your own personal library. They make perfect Christmas gifts. You even get free shipping on your first order!*

I just got Lord of the Flies by William Golding and am in serious amazement at what a gorgeous book it is. This is how books used to be published. No flimsy dust jacket or thin pages. A gorgeous hardback with a proper case to keep it safe. I've not read Lord of the Flies since high school and I can't wait to tuck into this old classic and enjoy not only the writing but that I'm reading from such a wonderful keepsake that I hope I can pass on to my children one day.
