I‘m so exited about this book! I‘ve been wanting it for ages (and though I‘m sure the hardback is much more appealing), I found it for $1.99 as an ebook, so I snatched it up!❤️📚

charl08 Loved it (and what an amazing bargain!) 4mo

This is going to be controversial BUT does anyone feel a duty not to collect too many books, because they'll be a burden for your kids when you're dead? I tagged one so beautiful that one of my children might want to have it, but honestly? Other than a couple of valuable boxed sets I can't imagine any of my kids will want them. I imagine giving a lot of them away to the library when I become a senior citizen.

Samplergal I‘m in the middle of that. Neither of my kids are voracious readers so I‘m giving them all away at my book clubs. 6mo
Megabooks Or you could donate them to prison programs or adult literacy. 6mo
jillrhudy @Megabooks Good idea! I read that estate sale people will just pulp them so I am determined to avoid that, and at least try to get them to someone who will read/love them. I could also use an online book swap system and simply mail them to anyone who wants them. . . (edited) 6mo

TheSpineView My gran6read a lot of the same books I do. Therefore, I see him having a field day with my books. 6mo
KathyWheeler I‘m considering downsizing my books because I really doubt my kids will want them. They read, but not like I do. 6mo
jillrhudy @KathyWheeler All six of my kids read but nothing remotely like I do, and for the most part they aren't going to want my books. They don't have the same taste in books for one thing. I do have a niece who reads like a house on fire. She may be my best hope! 6mo
Aimeesue You've seen my shelves, so obviously my answer must be NO. 😁 Also, that reminds me - I still have a box of books to mail to you. 😂 6mo
jillrhudy @Aimeesue You're kidding. I'm going to strike back with a parcel this time TWICE as big as yours, so there. That will fix your wagon. How are you fixed for hopelessly obscure Monica Dickens? I've got a copy of “Joy and Josephine.“ 6mo
Susannah You may have thought of this, but my mom and I were just talking about places to donate books, and she said she had a friend who donated them to homeless shelters (and perhaps domestic violence shelters too). 6mo
Aimeesue @jillrhudy I do not have Joy and Josephine, although I do have several M. Dickens novels. Did you read Mariana with AA? I think that was my first Persephone. 6mo
jillrhudy @Susannah For some of my books domestic violence shelters would be ideal! 6mo

Janet Mount inspired me to put together my ideal bookshelf from my own collection. I definitely spent 3 hours choosing and organizing 🤓 ... But, I realized so many of my faves are only on my e-reader 😕


post image

I mean!!! 😍♥️🥰
If you haven't already, please, do yourself a favor, and get ahold of this book!! The illustrations are lovely, and your #tbr will grow exponentially. I love this book and I want it for my own. Alas, it is a #librarybook that will be passed into other book-loving hands. Sigh. 🙂

Chelsea.Poole @MelissaSue81 I'm not sure what the notecards or planner contain, so I can't compare the them with the book. But, the book itself is just a work of art about books. There are categories throughout and illustrated stacks, such as "history" or "picture books" and there are pages about libraries, bookstores, authors' reading rooms, and more...all illustrated. 11mo
Klou @Chelsea.Poole thank you, me too! And I definitely will do if that's the case! 😊 11mo

Chester (orange) was on my lap first. Amberley wormed her way in and Chester wasn‘t feeling accommodating. 😹

We were supposed to travel this long weekend but snowpocalypse thwarted us. Now I‘m hoping to get some reading done. I was only mildly successful yesterday (I really need to stay off social media). We‘ll see what today brings. First up, finish the tagged book!

That's a wrap! I have a few hours left in this (good-for-nothin) year, but since I finished a book last night, I'm thinking this'll do me.

Good riddance to 2018, and welcome 2019!! I'm not going to say it can't get any worse, bc I tried that in 2016 and 2017, but I'll say I have renewed hope and continued faith.

May 2019 be Blessed for us all.

My text to a friend pretty much sums it up - I loved this book. A book about books is my Achilles Heel and this was no exception. Really a love letter to books and design. The author is an artist (famous for her Ideal Bookshelf paintings) and I love the marriage between her style of drawing and her love of books and bookish things. She covers genre, covers, bookstore cats, writers‘ rooms, cool bookstores and libraries, and book recs (and more).

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Such a beautiful book!!! 🤩 13mo

Cayla!!! I am overwhelmed with your generosity! This first package you sent blew me away, and yet there was more. Thank you is not sufficient enough but I am truly grateful. The Litsy community never ceases to amaze me. I've been so spoiled this Christmas by all my Litsy friends. Thanks again @CaliforniaCay ❤📚💚

LA_Mead Yay! Such a good book! I got that one for my hubby this year. 13mo

CaliforniaCay You are so very welcome!! You know, when I did the contest I was planning on sending one small book and a couple small gifts. But since so few people entered I decided to spoil the winner. And the closer it got to Christmas I decided to REALLY spoil the winner. It makes me happy to make someone else happy, especially fellow littens. So thank you for being involved in the litten community, I hope you enjoy everything 😀🎉🎁❤ 13mo

Where the Wild Things Are and Pierre were two of my favorite books as a child. I‘ve heard this story before, about the child eating the note from Sendak, but I didn‘t know:

“The “things” were meant to be wild horses, until Sendak realized he couldn‘t draw a horse.”

I‘m glad they wound up being more monster like, I love the way they turned out!

Another beautiful book from Jane Mount. Don‘t believe Olive‘s skeptical face: this book of beautiful bookstores, stacks of spines, and bookish people‘s‘ recommendations is delightful and absorbing. I‘m not sure how some of the current lists and recommendations will age, but who‘s to say what will prove to be an enduring classic? Great book for browsing.

Kayla.Adriena Haha maybe Olive wonders why you're giving that book attention and not her! That's what my beagle does 🙄😉 1y
emtobiasz @Kayla.Adriena oh definitely. After this picture was taken she stuck her nose under the book to knock it out of the way. Several times. 1y

Has anyone been to Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library? I love the description of this building, and would love to see the light through the walls!

Uh oh- first line:
“The goal of this book is to triple the size of your To Be Read pile.”
Maybe I shouldn‘t read this! My TBR is already immense!

Mitch I have it on my desk! It‘s so beautiful I stroke it as I pass by! 1y
Soubhiville @Mitch isn‘t it gorgeous? I love the different textures on the cover. I‘m reading it a few pages at a time. It‘s lovely. 1y
CoffeeNBooks I just sent you something from your TBR list- a housewarming book! 📚 It should get there on Sunday. It looked like a good book, so I ordered one for myself, too. 😂🤣 1y
Soubhiville @CoffeeNBooks aw that‘s sweet, thank you! I‘ll be watching for it 📕🧡 1y
