Fortune bookies are my way of sprinkling a little literary magic in bookstores, libraries, and gifts to friends. They're designed to celebrate books and connect readers with writers, illustrators, librarians, teachers, editors, publishers, and other book lovers. You can tuck one in a gift, sneak one in a favorite title at the bookstore, or simply save one for a rainy day. If you've found a fortune bookie, you know what a delicious surprise it is to discover a secret message in your book. Messages include "This is the book you seek," "When one book closes, another opens," and other oh-so-wise words. You can trust that the fortune bookie knows all, and the right message will find you at the right time. Or you can scroll down to learn how to make your own or request a free box of fortune bookies. I would love to send a little magic your way too!
