I love the smell of old books too!

I am going to read 21 Balloons. I know that it's more a book for children but I don't remember ever reading it and thought it would be fun.

Forget books - I totally want that chair in the second picture!!! Anyhow as far as books I actually picked up The Time Travelers Wife yesterday (the book, not his wife) and am looking forward to starting it today!!!

I love books too, one wall in our guest bedroom is completely covered from ceiling to floor with my books as well as my husband's.

Right now I'm reading Flapper by Joshua Zeitz, it's really good!

These photos are lovely. I dream of having a library in my house some day.

I just finished "The Sound and the Fury" and needed to have a little light heartedness. So I'm rereading (for the one millionth time) Alice in Wonderland. This time an annotated version.

I love the chair in the second photo. I'm slowly re-doing a craft area and want a chair similiar to that. I also love the dining room with all the books piled on the table, that is what my dining room table looks like all the time!! and the coco inspired room is heavenly. as for books I am reading chez panisse desserts, the pleasure is all mine and paris made by hand.
have a great day

Hi there. I was a late book bloomer and didn't catch the bug till my teens.. and from then on it has been an obsession. I need a new house to keep all my books. haha. Thanks for visiting my way.

I just finished reading Brave New World- Aldous Huxley and still reading Anna Karenina- Leo Tolstoy. However, I am currently hooked onto Tom Holt and I have a little column at the side of my blog which documents what I am reading at the current moment:P I am a 'sucker' for bookshops too!:P

We all love books and love to read in our family. Even those of us who battle dyslexia!! At the moment I am reading the Guenevere trilogy, but am taking a break between books to read the Time Travelers Wife before the movie comes out. Yes, I know these are really old books, but I must have been doing something else that year. Love the post!! xxx kim

I love books too and just think all the photos of the bookshelves you have shared are wonderful.

I am reading ~ A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff.
