Books in the Wild

October 26, 2012

“I cannot live without books”.

-Thomas Jefferson

If you’re reading this blog you are probably an incurable book lover.  You can’t walk by a bookstore without going in, you’ll never have enough bookcases and you never leave home without a book. It’s ok, you’re among like-minded friends here and in spite of our collective fear of finishing a book and not having that next one in hand, we hang onto the  faith that we’re never really far away from that next book. Here are just a few of the interesting places we found books.

It makes perfect sense to add some bookshelves to this fireplace:

While unconventional, a very smart use for your old mini fridge:

What to do with that old TV with no cable hook up? Fill it with books of course:

For the book lover on the go, here’s a convenient little library:

Not all of the books need to be on a shelf, these two clever kittens found a stack of books very helpful:

Of course, true book lovers don’t just read and collect books, they also enjoy the portrayal of books in other forms of art as well.

Here’s a quilt from the ALA 2012 Silent Auction:

How lovely to have a stack of your favorite titles greet you every time you walk up the stairs:

For your reading and eating pleasure,  a selection of delightfully delicious bookish cupcakes:
