if you can read this, thank your teachers.
i am all for literacy. in fact, i might be able to support the book industry all on my own. it’s a little out of hand, really. i don’t just buy one book at a bookshop, oh no — i rarely leave without at least three. it’s a bit of an addiction, but one i’m prepared to live with. and i have no shame about it. books are beautiful, books, i think are forever. i have an ipad, but i don’t read books on it. and i’ve heard all the arguments for it, and i understand them. but i still love a hard (or soft) cover book in my hands. i like the tactile feel of it. and i like decorating with books, too. i think they’re interesting and tell a lot about a person. one of the first things i do when invited to someone’s home, is check out there bookshelves. here’s to books!
love the prints and collections stacked up and displayed with bookcase brimming over, via lonny (above and below).
wonderfully simple enclosed glass bookcases i would die for, via hus & hem.
the ultimate goal. the day i have a ladder to my libary, is the day i’m a happy girl.
i find this such a clever use of space and a wonderful idea for storing night time reading, via AMM blog from lieblings weerke.
i like this idea of utilizing an unusual nook to create a little library, via stadshem.
i’ll bet there’s a lot of good conversation about books at this dining table, via hemnet; just perfectly stacked, on this mid-century modern credenza via femina; and i love this colorful stack on a vintage chair, via emersonmade.
lovely gray built-in bookcases; and this is really pretty too, all that light flooding in over the books, via vtwonen.
