Im a lover of books. Always have been, always will be. I remember winning a reading contest at my library when I was 9 for reading over 200 books in one summer. All I got was a watercolour paint set. Yes. Im a true nerd at heart.
I love old books, books that have history and books that can be passed down from generation to generation. I feel like there is always a story (no pun intended) behind an old book.
Recently Ive been finding some vintage books at a few of my local thrift stores and Ive been collecting them for my future book shelf in our family room one day.
Recently I came across some neat books on the Anthropologie site. They have the Penguin Classics Clothbound Collection available, which I think would be so pretty to have on your bookshelf.
Classics like: Great Expectations, Sense and Sensibility, Wuthering Heights and my personal fav, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
They aren't cheap, however, Ive done a bit of searching and found them on Amazon as well as ChaptersIndigo :) Best part is you can always get a deal on those sites, and the books themselves are cheaper on there as well.
My favorite find- the children's versions:
Peter Pan, Anne of Green Gables, Robin Hood, The Secret Garden, The Wind in the Willows and Huckleberry Finn.
You better believe those are going to be in a children's room in our house one day :)
