I Heart Books

I've got a couple hundred books. I've read maybe half of them and while I intend to read all of them, I just keep adding to them. A lot of my love of books has nothing to do with the words inside. It is often the smell of old books that make them irresistable and the lovely covers of new books just keep getting better and better. I am not Martha, I do not arrange my books by color. I do not arrange them by anything actually, I just put them up on the shelf.

Lately I am not having the shelving I need to put them all away and in my quest for ideas I have found many lovely things to share.

I will do this.

I want this.

Funky for a kid or college student.

Simple and elegant.


This is so good.

Humourous book shelves.

My solution for storing books at home: sell all of them and borrow from the library! :)

I'm with Scott's Mom, Trish. But you are right. The smell is intoxicating. Just think, the money we can save going to the library. We can buy more.....stuff.
Love ya Sweetie,
