Every since I was little I have loved books. What really got me though was when I was 14 or 15 my sisters (who are much older) shared some paperback romance novels with me and boy was I hooked! I love a good romance. I have books everywhere in my house.
Books on my entertainment center.
Books under the TV. Seriously books have to be EVERYWHERE in my house.
Books on my dresser. Those Lisa Kleypas books are my all time favorite romance books. If you are looking for some good romance books, hers are the BEST. I am not ashamed to say I love romance novels.
You get a sneak peak in my life here since you can see one of my favorite wedding photos (that is why it is on my dresser) and also those bells I recently acquired from my parents. They were part of my Grandmas collection.
Books on my nightstand, along with my Mother's Day present which I have not used yet. Seriously when do I have time for a massage? MUST.MAKE.TIME. Everyone needs a massage and it is what I asked for.
I really can't get into this Kindle thing. I know it is awesome technology and it is great to have any book you want at your fingertips but......I like having a book in my hands. I love the smell of books (really I do) I love having them in my home (obviously) I love being able to turn the page myself and read a book I love again and again. I know lots of people read a book once and never read it again but that is not me some of my favorite books I have read 20-30 times. I am trying to pass this along to my girls which so far it has worked. My oldest reads all the time and has the funniest way of it. She holds the book and then hums. We believe it is like opening credits in a movie. Then she reads the book. When it is done she again hums. The ending credits letting you know it is over. Hilarious and oh so cute. One of her favorite spots to read,reading nook, is her top bunk.
The 2 girls share a room and it is a small room, hence a small book shelf, but books are all over the cabinets where they keep their toys.
What was your favorite books as a kid? Some of mine, if you can see, are on the top shelf to the right of the CARS books. Those 3 books were some of my favorite and I recently found them at my parents and brought them home with me.
On my daughters nightstand. (I really need to get a picture in that frame!)
Do you think I am obsessed? Trust me I would own WAY more if I had the room. My house is very small and one day when we get a bigger one I will totally be buying tons of books and great big awesome book shelves to keep them on.
I haven't even showed you all the paperback romance novels I have that I keep in storage containers in my closet. All of the books in my home I have read, well I guess that isn't true as there are tons of Law books in the cupboard but those are my husbands, maybe some day I will read them. I did always want to be an attorney growing up. Two attorney's in the same household though?!?!?!? I don't think so. LOL.
