♥ where is human nature so weak as in a bookstore?

truth be told-- i am a book hoarder.
nick and i have about four book shelves and innumerable stacks of books piled up
in our tiny three-room apartment. and even when it appears that there is no room
for another book, or any need for that matter, i manage to come home from 
the goodwill every other weekend or so with another pile. 

the mere sight of books in every nook brings me happiness beyond word. 

one thing i have yet to do, is sort my books by color. 
i tried to once, but it took way too much effort and took away from the
haphazard, hodge-podginess of it all, (which is my favorite part!)

but if you are one of those people who aspire to this:

and this:

then, may i suggest etsy shop, jaysworld, where you can buy 
an instant collection of color-blocked vintage books,
with very minimal effort ;)

ps. thank you to jaimee, for alerting me of this shop ♥

4 ♥ love notes.:

  1. That first picture is amazing, I would love to have that in my house!

  2. The great thing about buying books is you can think to yourself 'I might not read this for a year, but I'll be grateful for it if I'm ever so poor I can't afford to buy more books!' that's how I justify my hoarding anyway :)

  3. Love this! I also have wayyy too many books but I love it :))

  4. I love the idea of having a color coordinated reading book xo
