A Room Without Books . . .


Is like a body without a soul. – Cicero

While some people love fashion because it tells you a lot about a person, I love bookshelves.

How they’re arranged, the knick knacks on it, what books they have – it all tells things about someone that you may not otherwise know.

Plus, my bookshelves are my favorite thing I own so I thought I’d give you a peak.

I’m a bit of an organization freak – my shelves are arranged by genre then by author’s last name. Memoirs, fiction, books on Italy, mysteries, movie books, etc.

So, tell me, are you a book magpie too?

One day (I’m determined) I will have as may bookshelves as Belle in Beauty and The Beast.

Do you have photos of your bookshelves? Post the link – I’d love to see it!

    I love your bookshelves- they’re so expressive! I’m a big fan of creative spines. Those Sherlock Holmes books are awesome!
