House Books



Books on the Coffee Table
Books stacked randomly
White shelves in the dining area
Lined up where we eat
Books on my Grandma's inherited secretary
Books in the boys room

On Lola's shelves
and her dresser
Books in the hall
books stacked in the living room
Living room shelves

I LOVE BOOKS! books are such amazing things. They bring me knowledge and joy and tears ALL AT THE SAME TIME. >:)

P.S: I love turquoise too... it's an unhealthy obsession... I'm trying to buy things in other colours because my wardrobe is dangerously close to smurf-like. >:/

Oh, I'm so so glad you stopped by Collecting Raindrops, today!

Sometimes it feels like this great big blogosphere is just a small coffee shop the way we strangers rub elbows.

I too am an abuse survivor and a teenage mom who found redemption and new purpose in the gentle corners of motherhood.

Also, I have the same white bowls (pictured on one of the stacks of books in this post.)

So, in addition to Sweet Salty and Nie and Cjane, we share some unfortunate historical similarities, taste in ramekins, and an over the top kinship with books.

Welcome to my little corner of the neighborhood. I hope we bump into one another again.

Miss Grace said...

I have bookshelf envy.

Magpie said...

I knew I liked you. I think houses without books mean that the people are not right.

Chaos and love said...

A house without books is like a_______without________.

You already know my love of the paper. I did ask Mr. Curry where his bookshelf was located. He told me he indeed reads a lot of books, they were just scattered here and there(probably slightly annoyed).

You have such a house full of love.
It oozes from all of you(including your animals).

Lola said...

Very cool!

Maggie May said...

Valerie Loveland said...

Ha, looks like my house.

Annie King said...

We have books in every room in the house, too, double packed into book cases or lying about (lying, laying - where's Strunk when you need him?) on tables and sometimes chairs or the floor (especially when there are too many library books checked out!)

Happy Reading!
