A good book is all I really need…

Book Love 7, originally uploaded by birdyonmywindow.

When times get rough, the weather gets cold, when my heart gets broken, when there isn’t enough money, when someone lets me down… all I need is a good book and I will lose myself within a literary world of wonder. I love reading and all that has meant to me my entire life. I am lucky to have found such a passion for something in this world… I am lucky to have many such passions.

What are yours?

“Books are becoming everything to me. If I had at this moment any choice in life, I would bury myself in one of those immense libraries…and never pass a waking hour without a book before me.”
~ Thomas B. Macaulay

Invisible Ingenuity

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

I love books. This is an understatement. I am a bibliophile. And being such leaves my immediate surroundings in imminent danger of being overrun with them. I have books everywhere. Piles and stacks all over. I have bookshelves filled. I have makeshift bookshelves. I have even turn my fireplace mantle into a bookshelf. And recently, I found the most exciting inventions…the invisible bookshelf. I love it. I have five so far. I have ordered more. And I intend on ordering even more.

It is really simple but ingenious. It is an L-shaped metal thing you screw into the wall. You use the cover of a book to hold the books up and then stack x amount of books on top of the first book. Voila! Instant invisible shelf. It appears as if the books are floating on the wall. =) A magical bookshelf, indeed.

Here are some of mine (albeit, the photographs aren’t really good…):

And they are uber cheap! Space-saving, ingenious bookshelves! I love them. You can get them in two sizes: Small and Large. The small covers most books. The large, really does hold LARGE books. =) You can get them here.
