Today I was reading book reviews and found myself on a site called http://bookshelfporn.com If you are a book lover, check out the photos. WOW. I often think of home improvements I'd like to implement, here at The Ghetto..and bookshelves are frequently involved. What is it about books that make a home look so inviting? I also ordered a book from amazon today :) Well, before you make any judgements...I do like to shop at bookstores (used and new) and support them. I love being IN a bookstore. My goodwill store (Delavan) used to have the most awesome book collection-loads of variety- It's changed now and their book section is much smaller (boo) but they still have an awesome glass selection. I do use Amazon too. Can't beat the price and sometimes I just like getting stuff delivered. Plus I was ordering something else so why not?
My little town does not have a proper library, unfortunately, but I have used other peoples library cards in their towns on occasion. For many years when the boys were young, I was Michelle from Huntley. (ahem) I've been Gail from Crystal Lake and currently I am Georgia from Walworth :) At least the last one is legit, as I can get books for my mom too. :) I figure if those people aren't using their library but are paying the taxes...It's all the same difference. But it sure would be nice if I could use any library any time!
In my ongoing cleaning project I have come across some old Domino magazines. Did anybody read those? These are from 2008, not that long ago but it was a great sort of home decorating/design mag. I'm taking the stack up to bed and perhaps I'll get rid of them after that. Do people 'save' magazines? I think that used to be a thing. We had a load of National Geo.'s because my oldest was given a subscription when he was young and nobody threw those away! I used to have all my old (talking OLD-like the '80s) Rolling Stone mags but finally purged them in a move. I don't really get any magazines anymore, but I think I would recycle them to someone. Happy Reading, friends! x
