Book Jewelry

One Saturday I was strolling through Hobby Lobby when I happened upon two little packs of ‘beads.’ Each package had three book charms in it AND they were half-price. Of course I had to buy them. Next, I hunted for some sort of open-link chain to put the little classics on. I found a pretty one at A. C. Moore. After I finished attaching the charms to the necklace, I realized they matched my old book pin. Working at a library, I can get away with wearing all nine books at once. I guess you could say I’m all booked up!
