Its Chrismas Card time. Cards are fun to get but sometimes a pain to write and send. There is just something great about getting a letter in your mailbox that has been hand addressed. Sure, we have email and text messaging but there is something about putting words to paper and sending them through the mail.
A few weeks ago when I was browsing through the books at the EEBE I noticed a facinating book of love letters, which got me thinking about letters and modern day communications. Another fascinating thing about used books is looking at the inscriptions – who bought the books and what did they write on the inside cover to the recipients.
The East End Book Exchange, Pittsburghs newest used book shop, wants to help revive the written word and they are hosting a card party. Today, Sunday, December 11 head down to the Pittsburgh public market for a card writing party.
