Old books reborn, plus GRAND Social No. 143 link party for grandparents

Old books reborn

The Girl On The Train book coverI love books. I'm currently immersed in THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Paula Hawkins. Have you read it? If you liked GONE GIRL, you will surely love this. I have about 80 pages left and just can't get there fast enough!

Artist Brian Dettmer loves books, too. He does far more than read books, though—he creates incredible pieces of art from them.

Take a look:


I just found Dettmer's work endlessly fascinating and thought my fellow book lovers here might, too.

Now for the real reason we're all here...

GRAND Social No. 143 link party

Welcome to this week's GRAND Social link party! Share a few links and please read some, too. I'm trying a new layout for the link party, so if you have problems of any sort, please don't hesitate to email me. Cheers to the grandparent bloggers—and readers!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
