Here’s the latest addition to my lovely @barnesandnoble children’s leather-bound classics set. I have three children (and one grandchild already), and I’m collecting three different sets of children’s classics to pass on to them for their children’s library. I have the original B&N leather-bound collection (complete already), this one (which they are still adding to), and the Puffin Deluxe children’s classics collection (which they are also still adding to). My daughter has claimed this collection for her library! She and her husband are building a house, so I have a feeling I’ll be saying goodbye to this gorgeous collection soon. 😢 And that kind of makes me sad, because I get a bit attached to my books. 😂 Can anyone else relate? . . . . . . . . . . #aladdinandthearabiannights #barnesandnoble #barnesandnobleleatherboundclassics #childrensclassics #classicliterature #childrensliterature #bookcollector #mybookcollection #bookphotography #bookworm #bibliophile #bookaddict #bookaccount #bookcommunity #boo#bookstagramure #bookstagram #totalbooknerd #readersofinstagram #iread #amreading #imareader #raisingreaders #readerslife

I just finished Retribution Rails and loved it!!! I had really high expectations because I loved Vengeance Road so much, and I’m so glad that I wasn’t disappointed. I highly recommend both books. 🙌🏻🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵 #erinbowman #retributionrails #yalit #western #bookish #booklove #bookgeek #booknerd #bookworm #booklover #bookstagram #bookphoto #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksarelife #bookphotography #bookstagrammer #bookishfeatures #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookishallure #bibliophile #bookcollector

Mighty Fortress 2007, 48 hand painted pages, 11” x 15”. Subject: “When I was 6 years old, I would look up at my mother in church and she’d be singing and I’d by awed and slightly frightened by her singing so forcefully this hymn filled with war images, A Mighty Fortress is Our God. The idea I had of my mother and this hymn filled with violence so confused me. Could one person have such opposing forces in her?”

Years ago I read Gifts by Ursula K. Le Guin in Dutch. But the publisher decided that they will not publish the second and third book. So I had to buy these books in English (because I want to know what happens next). And I also both the first one in English (for completionist sake). Truth is I still need to start in them. And it's almost a month ago that Le Guin died. So this is my next reading project. #Gifts #Voices #Powers #UrsulaKLeGuin #RIP #Fantasy #Book #Read #Reading #Reader #Bookstagram #Instabook #IGBook #Bookguy #Booklover #Bookcollector #Booknerd #Bibliophile #NextRead #NextProject

I'm so late! Sorry. Am I late? How late?! . Ok so strictly speaking (mimes that stupid speech marks thingy) today's #grimdragon FBC (day21 people!) is "I should re-read this!!!" but I've *adapted* my post to 'these'. Yep. Hardcore, me. What of it?! . The first book - The Empty Field by Christine Pullein-Thompson - was the very first book I bought with my own money by myself (5p at a car boot sale in 1980, if you must know - FOOOOK I'm old!) and is the reason I now adore books. I'd had plenty of lovely Enid Blyton books bought for me - and Blue Peter annuals, strangely, which must be the reason I LOATHE crafting! - but this was THE book that set my on my bibliophile (bibliophillic? bibliophallic?! 😨 yikes perhaps not that last one) path. . Anyway, I must make time - what, an hour each, plus 15 min for nostalgia? - to read them again. . Happy Wednesday eve, lovelies. #theemptyfield #christinepulleinthompson #horsebooks #ponybooks #storiesfrommychildhood #70schild #bookstagram #bookcollector #booksbooksandmorebooks #nosuchthingastoomanybooks #wordnerd #bibliophile #verbivore #wordwitch #shelfissues #youllfindmeinthelibrary #inbetweenthepages #leavesandpages #storydweller #lovereading #idratherbereading #inkandpaper 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚🐴

A sad happy birthday to the master of smart pathos. It's probably better not to think about what we could have had from David Foster Wallace had he still been alive.

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” ~ Michael Altshuler. ~•~•~•~•~ Good day my darlings! ✨ I hope this Wednesday is treating your well. I just got home from a load of shopping. I had a bridal shower gift to buy, birthday gift for my niece to purchase, and groceries to fetch. I also got some new work shoes for myself as mine were starting to fall apart. So overall I’ve had a productive day, besides me sleeping till almost noon 🙈 lol What have you all been up to today??. ~•~•~•~•~ {hashtags} . #bookstagram #booknerd #bookish #booklover #bibliophile #vintagebooks #bookcollector #bookcollection #bookishlife #bookdragon #bookworm #booksarelife #cozy #cozyvibes #wanderingbooks #bookishpeepsies #clockworkangel #cassandraclare #pocketwatch #antiquefinds #antiquewatch

Guyyyyssss, guess what I finally started reading??? That's right, Illuminae! Y'all are always saying that this book is amazing, so I am trusting you, The Good People of Bookstagram. ❤ . I was trying to read one of my OwlCrate books, but it was just *not* working out for me & it was making me really grumpy how much I wasn't enjoying it. I was not having a fun time haha. I need to be more of a ruthless DNFer like @novelheartbeat, so with the encouragement of the lovely & supportive @addlebrained_reader, I decided to just walk away from it (at least for now! Maybe it will work out later) & read something I will enjoy more...& I'm in the mood for something space-y. 🌌🌌🌌 . QOTD: What would you do if you were invisible for a day? Not gonna lie, I would straight up spy on people. OR...consider this...make someone think they had a ghost. 👻😂👻😂 . Okay, y'all I'm off to brave the thunderstorms in order to get to the gym! Hopefully people aren't driving crazy lol. 😝 . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphotos #bookphotography #bookpictures #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #bookaddict #bookish #bookcollector #bookcollection #bibliophile #read #reader #reading #amreading #currentlyreading #illuminae #amiekauffman #jaykristoff #space #spacey #scifi #YA #youngadult

I’m having way too much fun with @adesignkit app lately. Scroll to the second picture and check out my stories. Also, years ago I got this massive 12 setting China set at the swap meet in town. Along with platters and saucers and just about everything. The baby cappuccino cups are just so sweet. It’s a perfect set to pair with Alice. #aliceinwonderland #penguinclothboundclassics #mrboddingtonpenguinclassics #puffininbloom #riflepaperco #coraliebickfordsmith #barnesandnobleleatherboundclassics #canterburyclassics #teasets #adesignkit

Day 21 of the #grimdragon February book challenge. . . . -I Should Reread This!- . . . I talk about rereading this one a lot. And well, it’s because I loved it that damn much! It was an amazing adventure in a very King & Straub kind of way.

Day 21: 💫#iamsweetfebruary - Book and Hat 💫#beastlybooksfebruary18 - Clouds- Book Stairs 💫#bndtpfeb18 - P.S. I Love You - Letters on the cover - I came across Dear Penelope years ago in a bargain section of an old Canadian store. I never got around to reading it though. 💫 I’ll have to catch up on tags another day. My mental state is kind of gone after receiving sad news the other day. 🌺 #bookphotography #monthlychallenge #bookstagram #bookstairs #dearpenelope #sharonihle #bookandhat #booksofinstagram #bookworm #booklover #bookhoarder #bookcollector #booknerdigans #bookdragon #bookaddict #bookstack

I’m a day late for this one but this is for #Nat#NationalPetDay . . My doggy is my favorite thing in this world. He comforts me and makes me happy. He’s what I look forward to seeing when I wake up and when I get off of work. . . Who’s your favorite fictional pet? Mine is Rollo. He’s such a loyal pup and stays by Young Ian’s side till the very end. . . #Boo#Bookram #DrumsOfAutumn #Rollo #DianaGabaldon #BookAholic #Bookish #Book #BookWorm #BookNerd #BookGeek #Rea#Reading #Boo#BookAddiction #BookAddict #BookCollection #BookCollector #Outlander #NationalPetDay #Dog #Paws #Dogs #Bouton #Reading #ReadABook #Rea#ReadingAddiction #ReadingAddict

How do you organize your books? One of my many dream jobs would be to organize bookshelves as a living. Just bookshelves, though. All other cleaning/organization gives me a headache. 🧜🏻‍♀️ Side note: I’ve had a few people tell me that they will forever associate me with mermaids and I don’t want to brag, but that means I’ve pretty much fulfilled my life goals at the age of 27. Should be smooth sailing from here, yeah? 😎 . . . . . . . #penguinclassics #penguinclothboundclassics #clothboundclassics #bookends #bookmermaid #janeausten #villette #charlottebronte #theodyssey #bookphoto #bookphotography #bookspines #letsbemermaids #bluestocking #bluestockingbookshelf #bookblog #bookblogger #bookcollector #bookcollection #culturetripbooks #beautifulbooks #unitedbookstagram #classicliterature #bookfeaturepage #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #fortheloveofreading #riotgrams

I am head over heels in love with this pin badge that my lovely Hubby, @duncansillars got for me all the way from Australia. The fabulously talented @sophie.carlon has a gorgeous Etsy store called Abby and Eye where she designs, draws and creates these wonderful works of art. She’s also an author and her writing is gorgeous.

I really wanted to love Milk and Honey. I’ve heard only good things so maybe I’m the weirdo but I didn’t love this. I admire what she did and am thrilled that poetry has received a lot more attention since it’s been published. It just wasn’t for me. (But man, it was fun to zip through something so quickly after Les Mis 😅)
