Books, Books, Books!

I just finished reading Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. It is so nice to have completed a book, as I've had a few too many lingering on my night stand. This book I highly recommend. It's an invigorating and mysterious read drenched in the charm and glamor of the early circus era. Check it out.

And while I am on the subject of books, a few things...

Isn't this dreamy?

I'm swooning over this cozy atmosphere. Nothing appeals to me more than a wall full of books-- and to have them piled above you as you sleep?! You could actually breathe books while you dream! You know, the scent of old books, or better yet--the bookstore? You know what I mean.

Now that I have finished Water for Elephants, I am focusing on September's Book Club read, Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore. I'm also working on Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

How about you? What are you reading? Any suggestions for me?

I LOVE books too! I just finished "Same Kind of Different As Me" last week and really enjoyed it. I recommend it! Happy Reading!

Jeez that room looks like the definition of my nightmare! Hmmm.... I wonder what that says about about my personality? Hope you're enjoying your birthday week:)

Ah yes to be sleeping there with the scent of books running through your veins...I would love it! They really would be 'sweet dreams'

LOVE that room! And yes, I've just finished a couple really good reads: The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio, and The Middle Place. Both are true stories and amazing reads.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
