books and more books


For those of you who know me in real life or if you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know that last year I got the most awesome job in the world...teacher-librarian in an elementary school. I can't even tell you how great it is to be surrounded by books all morning and to see kids genuinely excited about books. Yeah, it's pretty great.

I had the good fortune of stumbling upon the loveliest blog this morning. It's called Bookshelf Porn and the name is just so fitting! Please, do yourself a favour and go browse through their archives. You won't be disappointed. So much booky awesomeness awaits you there. Like pretty shelves arranged by colour.

And rooms you'd want to spend a rainy afternoon in.

How could anyone want to buy an e-reader after seeing a beautiful website like this?

if you're ever in copenhagen, you must check out the laundromat cafe. you can eat a burger or read a book from the shelves which are organized by colour... all while waiting for your laundry to finish in the back room. (:
