Personalized Subscription Boxes

What do you think of personalized subscription boxes? 
The boxes would be available in 1, 3, 6, or 12 mos increments and include 1 or 2 books. 
Subscribers would receive a survey to complete for the initial box. 
Subsequent boxes will be refined based on feedback from recipient. Boxes may include a few book-related goodies.
These carefully curated boxes could be for personal use or sent to someone as a gift.

The Brain Lair Bookstore - Kickstarter ( cancelled)

#BuildABookstore #SaveALife

Kickstarter cancelled for now:

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for your support! In about 3 weeks, we raised over $11,000! That is amazing and we should be super proud of ourselves! During those three weeks, I’d done more research and had been updating and revising the Bookstore Kickstarter but could not keep up with the feedback. I’d also been in touch with two mentors who have experience with the Kickstarter platform. It was suggested that I cancel the kickstarter, and work with one of the mentors on revising it with a stronger, more cohesive message.

The research shows that successful crowdfunding campaigns have usually raised 1/3 of what they need within the first 15 days. Since the funding is all or nothing - I would hate to continue and then we don’t fund the project. This will give me time to do more research, reach out to more people in my community, and find a potential space.

All of your pledges will be returned. But don’t spend the money just yet! I plan on opening a new kickstarter in a few months. As backers, we can still communicate through this platform. I will keep you informed every step of the way. As soon as the new Brain Lair Bookstore Kickstarter is open - you will receive a link.

Again, I thank all of you for your tweets, posts, blogs, and just loving encouragement. The “crowd” part of this crowdfunding has just been phenomenal. My heart is full.  

Kathy AKA The Brain Lair.

Gratitude - One Word #SOL17

My  One Word for 2017 is Gratitude. 

It was tough to settle on a word this year. Not because one didn't come to me but because Gratitude sounds HARD! I'd had a tough year, I was not feeling really grateful. Which is how I knew this was my word.

It's March and I'm finally finishing this post. I'm looking at this as a reminder to think intentionally about my life, especially all the ways I can express my gratitude for the joy in my life.

Right now?

I'm grateful to be on the 2018 Printz Committee! There are so many books we are reading, though I can't discuss them with you just yet! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I'm grateful for my voxer group who share my zeal for connecting books and readers. ๐Ÿ“š

I'm grateful for my daughters Jessica (my heart daughter) and Elizabeth (my soul daughter) who are thoughtful, kind, and hardworking. And good-looking! ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ™Œ
