⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Such a fun, literary celebration! I grabbed this (current) ebook deal, but my Paperwhite, though usually amazing, just can‘t do Jane Mount‘s beautiful artwork proper justice ... but $1.99 is a $1.99, so I jumped on it. It was fun seeing some familiar bookshops (Parnassus, King‘s English, Tattered Cover) featured and, naturally, my TBR has expanded. Definitely buying this for my step-MIL for Christmas. She‘ll love it!
I just discovered the My Library app... I'm about to fall deep down this hole...
A pile of #History books in Mount's book. Although I read several nonfiction books a year & am fascinated by it, history is one of my least read genres. A few of these are on my TBR.
Happy September everyone 🙋🏻♀️❤️ Hope you‘re all doing well & what are you reading? 😊
Sorry for being MIA ...it has been a crazy month of August & didn‘t even realised that I haven‘t been posting anything or checking social media much for the whole month! 😱 But Im back & have been reading so will be posting some wrap ups soon🤗
Pictured here are Birthday gifts from my non reader sister💗 Love her so much! #bibliophile #booknerd #Funko
Hold onto your TBR —
Bibliophile is jam-packed with information, illustrations, recommendations, and just about everything else that has to do with books. I seriously think I doubled my to-be-read list after reading this book. Highly recommended and fun for bibliophiles like me.
🚚 Moving day and my new house comes with 8 ft tall bookshelves 😍📚... I can't wait to obsess over how to organize them!
This is just utterly stunning. The pictures are beautiful and really capture the essence of each book. This is filled with lists of books in every genre. Theres also lots of information about book shops and libraries around the world. Given me lots more books to read. A wonderful book for any book lover. 5*. #24B4Monday #SummersEndReadathon
So... I just updated my Goodreads to reflect all the books I want to read, but don‘t own. This means it doesn‘t include the #TBR books I have saved on #Scribd or #Libby, or the ones stacked on my shelf. 🤭
I picked up this puzzle on Independent Bookstore Day; it felt fitting to start piecing it together on National Book Lovers Day. I‘m finding it very helpful that I am familiar with every book and author in the puzzle. I‘ve read 13 of the 23 books illustrated. I think it will be a fun challenge to read the rest. Bonus-the puzzle comes with a frameable print of the finished product. Really had a great night working on this with my dh and daughter.
Considered everyone's suggestions and came up with a new system: a genre/time period combo, considering height in each. Shelf 1 is futuristic. Shelf 2 is fantasy that feels contemporary, and fantasy that feels historical. Shelf 3 is contemporary fic and historical fic. 🤓
I feel pretty good about it atm... but I'll have to sleep on it to know for sure lol And yes, my bookmarks are in a Buffy mug 😊
Help! -- I've been thinning out my books with the goal of eventually only owning and displaying books I LOVE. I have two bookcases with some keeps on them now (this is one) but I CANNOT decide how to organize them 😖 it's driving me nuts!
How do u all organize shelves??
So lovely! Packed with book lore, recommendations, great bookstores and more, this book made me smile, feel grateful, and added quite a few books to my TBR. It also looks lovely on my coffee table! A great gift for a bookish friend, I highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So, this was the coolest thing I've ever had happen when reading a book.
I'm sure that many of you know of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in NYC. One of its founders, Bryan, is a friend from high school. His younger sister remains one of my brother's best friends to this day, 30 years later. Not only have Bryan & Doug written a cookbook, they were featured in Bibliophile! 😁
This book is lovely, whimsical, & so much fun to read.
Started this yesterday because my hold came in from the library. I was bummed because they didn't have it on Overdrive, and I'm always nervous bringing library books into the danger zone that is in close vicinity to my young children, but this hardcover book with the built in ribbon bookmark is gorgeous. It is a joy to hold.
Life has been overwhelming lately, and I'm behind in my reading tracking. Will get to May stats eventually.
This book took me forever to read (or so it seemed). I kept stopping to look up anything that interested me...like how far that certain bookstore is from my house. Also, I read this in ebook format which I really do not recommend. The pages and text and illustrations don‘t match up very well. Overall a good book about books/bookstores.
This is a lovely book to curl up with and explore. It has tons of book recommendations to add to your already gigantic TBR list. It also highlights bookstores, libraries and Little Free Libraries around the world, as well as book mobiles 😀 I also love that it highlights people doing good in the book world!
I am a day late posting my weekly update (very sick yesterday-didn‘t want to move). I was able to get in 3 gardening sessions and 1 meditation so I hit my goal. I also read or listened to 7 short stories/books (703 pages). I‘ll count that as 2 books out of 6 for my goal. Points: I‘ll edit once I count them up. My favorite was the Grumpy Cat book. #shewillbemissed #sosad
I borrowed this on #Hoopla first, but I think it works better like this so you can really see the beautiful pictures. Get ready for your tbr to explode.
Delightful! Simply delightful book about books. This book contains everything you would ever want to know about different genres of books, authors, book stores worldwide, music about books, and even the bookkeepers themselves. The illustrations are very bright and colorful. A perfect book for any bibliophile to add to their library shelves.
I highly recommend it!
Sherry what a wonderful package!!! I have been wanting this beautiful book for the longest time. It is lovely! I adore the bookmark and Hedwig is perfect. She is so cute! I love her! Thanks so much for all the thoughtful gifts. ❤️❤️❤️
Katie thank you so much for organizing this wonderful swap! You should make this a bi-annual Swap 😉
So the book buying ban for April is going really well. Oopsy. Better luck next month lol.
Have you ever used/seen a bookmobile? I never have but would love to!
Thank you SO MUCH for this birthday gift, Scott! I didn‘t already have it, but have coveted it for a while. You‘re awesome! ☺️
I thought my #LMPBC #round4 group would appreciate this! @thebluestocking @Ingerella @Whimsical.Curiosity
I didn't catch this! Did any of you?
I still think about this book. It was probably the most imaginative (although very odd and disturbing) book that I have ever read. Which makes it a great choice for a book club! 😉
We start tomorrow at midnight! It's time to show us your stacks!!! 📚📚📚
These are my tentative reads. I have hopes to finish only two of them. Even that will be an amazing accomplishment for me right now 😊
