If you’re familiar with me, you know I’m an avid reader. Within the last ten years, I’ve made literacy my focal point in the classroom, as well as outside of school within the community. Now I would like to help you.
Every summer I get requests from friends and family for book recommendations. This summer I decided I would offer a more dynamic service: a collection Curated by Carrie.
For $50 you will receive a collection of at least three books along with a few surprises. This curated experience is available after taking a brief interest survey. Think of it as a stylist would his or her clothing, but with the added features of A). Local shopping: you may receive a book from a local author who I already have an established partnership within our community. This also might mean your surprise gift-thematically connected to your book choices-will also be locally sourced and B). I will strive to be eco friendly with your books (gently used if possible-Amazon will only be used as a last resort), packaging material, and gifts. Handwritten notes from me will also be written on scrap paper as opposed to newly purchased stationary.
Any proceeds will be used for two things: to continue cultivating my classroom library without having to beg donors every three months and to help my daughter, Claire, mitigate costs associated for ballet instruction at the Flint School of Performing Arts.
This would be the perfect time to give yourself the gift of reading or share your love of reading as a present with someone who you know has everything. Reading is the only gift that continues to give. I will curate a collection for any age.
Once you contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org and send your $50 through Venmo @Carrie-Mattern, I will share the survey link with you and you can expect your shipment within 2 weeks. Shipping is included unless international. I’ll contact you again when your curated collection is shipped. I’ll reach out in the future to see if you were satisfied. If you are, please share with friends and family. If all this technology seems to be too much, just call me to order and we will go from there.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for your continued, valued support. I look forward to curating a collection for you or someone you love. #curatedbycarrie
