I will always love...books

Since I was a little girl I have loved books, they are one of my greatest loves and passions.  I couldn't imagine a life without books, I have them in just about every room.  So it was interesting when I received a Kindle for Christmas from my Mum. I was thrilled, I hardly ever get surprises but this was a huge one.  I really wondered how I would cope without the smell and feel of a book in my hand but I must say I am loving it and the whole Kindle experience has been great so far, it's convenient, compact, cheap and it's pretty fun to use.

Even with my new found Kindle love affair, nothing will ever replace a real book or real bookshelves for me. There is something about the turning of pages, the smell of the paper and print and the joy of holding the magic of the written word in my hands.

Just look at some of these fabulous bookshelves from around the world featured on Bookshelf Porn (don't you love the name?)

A few years ago I purchased this wonderful book titled 'Books Do Furnish A Room' it's a visual feast of beautiful bookshelves.

And finally even if you don't have loads of space or live in a rental property and can't add shelves these Ideal Bookshelves by Jane Mount of Ideal Bookshelf are the perfect solution.  Jane will customise your favourite bookshelves and paint them just for you!  Aren't they fabulous?

So in my world you can't be without real books even if you do love the Kindle.  How about you - do you love your Kindle?  Are you still a 'real' book lover too?  How do you display your books?

Until next time, have a colour filled day.
