the art of books

I love reading and with that, I love books!

I have a steadily growing collection, and after seeing this bookcase, was inspired to organize my books by color:

(I know we've used this image one thousand times - we both LOVE it!  Too bad we have no idea where it came from!)

It seems I'm not the only one attracted to the rainbow organization...

Others found beauty in the pages themselves...

While others decided to frame their masterpieces...

I think this books-as-a-sidetable is cute in theory...but potentially unstable!  I'm sure it helps they are all about the same size...

This haphazard stacking looks a little like someone just moved in - but beautiful at the same time??

It is such a rainy, yucky, cold day here - I would love to just lay around and look through lovely books all day long!

Ahh well...Happy Humpday everyone!

  1. Great pictures. This post certainly gives me an idea how to organize my books. I'm an avid reader myself. I'm a fan of Victoria Holt, Sidney Sheldon, and Isabel Allende, but I read just any book that comes my way. I tried the haphazard stacking back in the day, unfortunately we have three babies (doggies) in the house so it doesn't work for me. I might try the rainbow organization! Thanks for the idea.
