Books, books, books – something I never can get enough of. Whether it’s book club, book store, my own books or any library anywhere. Yes, even my friends’ books. If I was locked in a room with books & got some food now & then, I would not think very much of it, believe me. I always carry back a filled suitcase with books when I have been back in Sweden for a visit. It’s inevitable, I just can’t resist it. Books creates a home, brings life & soul to the rooms & areas. Actually even color & motion. From filling the bookshelves to baskets & open cabinets as well as different surfaces to high stacks of books.
You know, even though I’m a book fan for the sake of the stories, the characters, the knowledge they bring & the joy of disappearing into another world & forget the outside world… I’ll have to admit that I also use my beloved books to create seasonal change at home. Believe it or not, I do. I pluck about in the shelves, organising sizes & colors, even lays out books with beautiful book covers in seasons – Christmas or summer or whatever suits at the moment. The same with table & other surfaces around the house where one can easily sit down, take it easy & browse randomly. It’s soooo nice :)
Take care / Marie
