3 Pinterest Book Boards

You must all know by now that I am, first and foremost and forever, a reader. Raised on a diet of Nancy Drew and Anne Shirley, tremulously stepping into adulthood with the help of Jane Eyre and Bertie Wooster (disparate, I know), and flowering (hopefully) under the watchful eye of dear Hemingway, Chandler, and Fitzgerald (where to stop?), there is good reason that I own seven pairs of glasses.

It’s not only the words inside of books I love, though. It’s also a book’s appearance. There are few sights more aesthetically pleasing than a beautifully designed book cover. Unless, of course, it’s a stack of many such books on a table, shelf, or windowsill. Indeed, I think books are the ultimate decorating tool: no room should be without them, and every room looks better with them.

I have three Pinterest boards devoted to books: Books, Books & More Books, A Place to Read, and Interiors: The Library. Out of my 61 Pinterest boards, I think they are probably the ones I pin to most of all. So if you too love book visuals, I would heartily suggest following me there! And if you come across new books, shelves, or libraries that I need to see, please share your pictures with me!

Here’s a little sampling of what you’ll find on said boards. It was sure hard to choose only a few!

Pin Me!

I’ve always been a bit flummoxed over what to do with the plethora of images I find online everyday. It’s all well and good to keep a file on your desktop of glorious editorial photos, vintage images, and shopping inspiration, but rather pointless if you can’t readily see them.

So Olive say “hurrah” to the folks at Pinterest! At last someplace to organize, share, and discover even more pictures to set the heart racing. See if my images do the same for you here, and then share your Pinterest board with me!

PS. Well Friday already? It’s always a funny week when Monday is a holiday. What special plans do you have for the weekend? I’m finishing up this wonderful hardcover on art in Paris between the wars: Paris 1919-1939: Art, Life & Culture
Highly recommended and sure to get you twitching for a paintbrush or maybe even a trip to the art gallery.
