Aside from the auction action, Second Story, owned and operated by Allan and Kim Stypeck, has also launched a “Sheltering with Books” project, asking readers to share what they’re reading and other book notes with fellow bibliophiles: “Are you reading under shutdown? What are you reading? What do you think about what you're reading? Want to share your thoughts / feelings / stories / photos about a book or books? Favorite authors? How are you adapting to your new stay-at-home literary lifestyle? Or is your new lifestyle basically the same as your previous? This is the place to post about any of the above (or anything related to the above – you get the idea).”
With the help of Fine Books, Second Story plans to create an online archive of the responses for the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress. So far, fans have weighed in with reading lists and shelfies. Come join us!
