10 for Tuesday: 10 of the Coolest Bookshelves You’ve Ever Seen

Having books around just makes me happy. That's one of the reasons I enjoy when people show off their bookshelves (aka shelfies). Writing books is creative so why can't storing books be creative too? It can and here are some great ones.

Book Hoarding: Good, Bad or Just Semantics?

Sunday Funday: One Crazy Afternoon of Books, Music and Food (But Mostly Books)

On our way to our weekly music lesson on Sunday, my daughter sat in the back seat of the car lamenting that we never do anything interesting on Sundays and that she needed more steps.
