I like to do crafts in my spare time, and in particular, I like to make mini things. And being a librarian, miniature books are a particular favourite. I cut strips of white paper to size, draw tiny dots and dashes and lines on the paper to represent text sections (it’s too small to write actual words), glue these together onto a paper strip spine, write a short title on a front page (I can fit approximately three or four short words onto the front cover), glue the front and back covers on, sand or trim the pages to equal sizes, then finally decorate the spine and front cover corners.
So, what I’m offering to do today is to give away this mini book, called “The History of Apples”, which fits within the glass bottle you see it in at the top of this post. The bottle lid has a hole, which means this could be worn as a necklace, added to a keyring…or just kept on a shelf to confuse people.
All you have to do is leave a comment below within the next week, completing the following sentence:
“I want The History of Apples” because…”
The most amusing or ridiculous reply is the one who’ll get it!

I want The History of Apples” because… I want to read it to the apples on my apple tree in the garden whilst I generally mock them threaten that they might be pressed into cider if they don't stop just hanging there awkwardly on the branches.
I might need my pince-nez if the font is small though.. 😉
I want the History Of Apples because I am a tiny book about the History of Pears and I am a bit lonely and if I had a small book just like me we could maybe share a bottle and grow old together and make some weird cider.
I want the history of apples so that the pixies stop their rioting and learn something interesting instead
I want 'The History of Apples' because next time Appleman, Bananaman's sometime-enemy, sometime-ally, comes a-visiting, I want to be prepared to win him over by demonstrating my knowledge of his kind.
Because I have lost the manual for my Ipod Mini and assume this small book about Apples will cover the same ground
