My neighbor and I share the same taste in fiction novels and she readily lets me into her bookshelves to borrow till my heart’s content (thank you Dolores :~). When I opened the recent book I borrowed from her, out fell the most adorably simple bookplate. I had never laid eyes on one before it dropped from the pages. My heart soared and I decided that I would make my own. According to Wikipedia, bookplates overtook book rhymes in the 19th century. I decided to combine the two and wrote up a rhyme to accompany my name.
