In the stacks

There is something so romantic about stacks of worn old books.  I am not sure that there is anything cozier than a room chock full of shelves and shelves of them with a squishy chair to read in.  In the land of my dreams, I own an victorian era home with its very own library piled to the brim with all the most wonderful books.  And obviously one of those curvy spiral staircases so I can climb up to the top and retrieve first editions of Jane Austen.  Yes that sounds just about right.  You are all welcome to come visit me there.  I will provide the assorted snacks and coffee and you make sure to wear your comfies.  You may get wrapped up in a story and want to stay awhile.

 Despite the fact that I most likely won’t have my library with books stacked up to there anytime soon, I would happily settle for something a little more like this…

If only someone would help me locate one of those incredible chairs.  Happy Monday.  Here’s to hoping we all get some time to curl up with a good book this week.

    Romance + books … your so right! I never put the two in the same category but as I scroll through these images they are both! Makes me wanna snuggle with a good book and the hub by my side! Loving your posts… AS ALWAYS! xoxo

    There is a wonderful book store in Asheville NC that this reminds me of. Sorry but I can’t remember the name of the bookstore but there are different levels and the books are all used – but lots of different things and some very old books you wouldn’t find anywhere else. They sell coffees and wines and have round tables and cushy chairs for book clubs. I’ll try to get you the name of it – whenever you go to Asheville you need to check it out – it’s awesome!

    Lindsey, Thanks lovey! I am envisioning our of your fantastically styled engagement sessions in some book stacks. 🙂
    Susie, I really want to go next time I am in Asheville. I think Bill has mentioned it to me before.
    Mrs. G., let’s put our cash together and buy a house with a library!
