African Hips Don't Lie

I am a fairy. Who knew Peter Pan? 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, 

I have hundreds of books. Literally. One entire room of floor to ceiling book cases, running three levels deep. 

Digitally my collection of books run into thousands. My Kindle after five years of loving care – died. Bloody rude. A need for perfume, purple glitter and to be truthful, more books,  have stopped me from purchasing a new Kindle as I can’t afford it. This is very sad. Benefactor welcome

Liam James suggested I be lovely and donate some of my books to the library. Excellent, but beige. It is so “have been done before“.  I needed to find another way to share my treasure and bless the world.

I found #ibelieveinbookfairies quite by accident on Instagram and then, read up on Facebook. It is an international initiative where books are gifted, left in random locations, longing to be found.

I love a good longing. Giving gifts, the element of surprise and spreading unexpected joy. I’m a sentimental sod. 

I sprinkled fairy dust as I left a book at Montecasino on my way to the theatre. Magical. Yay!

A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.

-Henry Miller

I would love to know who found the book! 

I wish you enough

  1. Lovely!

    Ps! Just get the kindle app on your phone. Completely free and even sometimes comes with a monthly free book depending on what phone you have.


  2. I absolutely love this idea! I would love to find a book in a random place, and I would love to leave one behind myself 🙂


  3. Awwww this is so cool. I would love it if I got a gift from a book fairy. High 5!


  4. […] The book fairy campaign– because she has hundreds of books […]
