About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

Dream Homes For Bibliomaniacs

"What do you do when you're an architect whose father owns 16,000 books? You build him a house-library and move in permanently."

I just had to share this quote from a Flavorwire article and photo gallery featuring homes designed for book lovers. If you're like me, you'll be drooling over these pictures of bookshelves embedded into the floor, built into a staircase, filling walls, and more.

Am I jealous? Well, much of my book storage is made up of piles on tabletops, on the floor, on the window ledge, on my nightstand--so, yes, of course I am envious seeing these beautiful spaces. At the same time I am also happy to know that there exist others who are perhaps as book nerdy as I am or more so. Hmmm, I'm getting some ideas!

Take a look at the rest of these unique and beautiful homes on the Flavorwire website here:

Dream Homes.
