Black white and read all over

I also started to read this book ( a little summer treat for my self)

and this one

Did you know you can buy used books on amazon? the prices are amazing (sometimes on 79 cents for a book (although there is still 3.99 shipping). But when you do you are often supporting a lot of small used bookstore businesses. That is how our neighborhood bookstore (in our tiny town) is able to stay open here because they do so much business over Amazon :D. Not to mention the total luxury of getting a book you want to read sent to your house for only 5 dollars.

Sweet Bookshelves

These bookshelves next to the kitchen table are the perfect height to be useful – but at the same time they do not overtake the proportions of the room. Also I love the detail of how even though this is a relatively short bookcase, the bottom shelf is still substantially raised up off the ground with decorative trim- I always worry about books close to the floor getting damaged.
