I am helping with a baby shower that is taking place this weekend (not the host, just helping because the shower ended up being a big production) and the host really wanted to start a little library for the new baby. She had mentioned doing the book instead of a hard thing, and I mentioned that was not well received by most, so she threw out that idea and starting thinking. So she called me today and last night she went to Half Price Books and spent hours searching for children's books that were still in great condition and printed off little stickers to go on the inside for shower guests to write little notes and well wishes for the baby.
Sorry that was so long, but I was so glad someone threw out the 'book instead of card' thing and used their resources to come up with a perfectly acceptable way to start a library :)
Thought this board might appreciate that someone finally went the less tacky route!
