Bohemian Bookworm

I know you're probably tired of all my book posts.  But I'm obsessed.  I'm a bohemian bookworm through and through.  I've got piles of books lying around my house and any piece of stationary furniture has the potential of becoming a permanent book depository.  On my side table right now: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano, Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and Shakespeare's King John (I'm working on a Constance monologue for an upcoming audition.)

Ha- you should see my family room wall of books which, by the way, sadly has been filled up for 2 years now. I need to make a donation to Half Price Books...

What would a home be without its books? I would be lost.

Very inspiring and a perfect post for me. We just moved into a loft and the bedroom has a lofted bookshelf with a ladder! I can't wait to fill it with all my books. Thank you for the beautiful images.

Ha...you should have ended this post with a very clean looking room with a kindle on the coffee table.

Actually I use my kindle constantly, but some of the old books and a few of the new specialized ones aren't available this way...so I still have piles of books!

La Maison Boheme said...

Oh yes Anita - "Operating Instructions" was my first introduction to her work. Someone I love gave it to me when I was pregnant with Walker five years ago. It's my favorite!

I love books too! I have a book buying addiction but at least I get them second hand most of the time. I also cannot let go of them. I have no bookshelf in my apartment so they are stacked. Beside my bed I have a stack of about 75 books I have yet to read. It makes me so excited!

Great blog, I love the photos! Very inspiring!
I'm a Sydney-based French blogger, promoting healthy eating, fitness and exercise based on the principles of the French Paradox.
My blog Mademoiselle Slimalicious is NOT a dieting blog. It focuses instead on eating for pleasure, with moderation and balance, making healthy food choices and maintaining a level of fitness by being naturally active.
I actually did interview Mireille Guiliano (author of French Women Don't Get Fat) on my blog, you may want to have a look at it.
