In The Wild Books


Welcome to In The WIld books!

I've always had a deep love for vintage books. The smell, the feel, the beautiful content that becomes addictive the more you read it; you know what I'm talking about.

From the age of about 12 I started collecting them for myself and carried the boxes with me to my first apartment at the age of 20. They were some of my most prized possessions. 

It wasn't until I had my first & second child and moved into our first home that I finally unpacked my best books onto one single bookshelf in my living room. 

It wouldn't be until another two children came and I stumbled upon the Facebook Group Reshelving Alexandria that I would truly begin to understand the calling that is placed on parents to cultivate & build their very own Legacy Library for their children to grow up in. 

A FEW MONTHS LATER: 

I started a small Facebook Group with the intention of helping the individual & families build their library with books that I find while out and about in my everyday life and decide to rescue them. However, due to the increasing challenges that Facebook's inconsistency with notifications I had to think in a larger scale and begin building this website with the hopes that I could continue this lovely side quest. 

The name In the Wild Books was inspired by my love of finding treasures in the wild. Which is a term used sometimes to describe finding books out and about, not specifically buying it on a website. It's the idea that sometimes wonderful books will find you when you least expect it. For me it's a wonderful surprise. I hope you find something you need, or want, or something you know needs a home at a friend's or relatives house... If you have any questions feel free to contact me. 

God Bless You
