From the “About” page:
“Browsing The Stacks” proposes to be a celebration of Mormon book collecting. For the title, I’m inspired by my fondness for browsing the stacks of the Mormon book section at the BYU library and coming across a great book I didn’t know about and would have never found had I not taken the time to browse.
This will be a place to talk about books for the sake of books rather than to critique them on their ideological slant or their historiographical value. Hopefully, taking a more neutral position on these matters, we can provide some common ground for lovers of Mormon books to discuss their love of collecting.
I hope to feature collectible Mormon books, some fun and interesting tidbits about them, and some fun guest posts from dealers and other collectors on everything from practical tips to their own adventures in collecting.
The masthead photo has been kindly provided by Hugh McKell of Bear Hollow Books, a version of which once served as the masthead for his old website. I’m proud to have it here as a tribute, of sorts, to a continuing legacy of Mormon book collecting. I hope you’ll enjoy the site and check back often.
