One thing I love more than anything is vintage books and I cannot go past a shop that stocks them without popping inside to see what is on offer. I was so lucky a few months ago and was able to buy these beautiful books. The papers and details on the cover are truly wonderful and could not have more shabby chic charm if they tried.
These books are all around 90 years old and I know I will happily sit down in a cozy corner and read them. When a book is as pretty as these are it just gives them so much more charm and appeal. I currently have these in one of my guest bedrooms on the bedside cabinet. Set there ready for someone to open them up and dive into another world.
Like most people today I do have an iPad and I love it! I must admit it is one of my great joys to read a new book on my Kindle app. The convenience is wonderful but it still cannot beat that musty smell that comes from a well read and well loved book. There is truly nothing like it in the world!
