One of my favorite items to decorate my house with is books, and this past Christmas I was gifted with a few clothbound Penguin Classics. Obsessed would be an understatement. I've wanted to add these beloved beauties to my book collection for several years. Now that I have a few, I feel greedy. I can't seem to get enough. I want them sprinkled around every room. They're delicious! And yes, I just used an adjective commonly related to food to describe books. It just feels right. These eye-popping beauties have linen jackets that are both charming and bright. My current collection has taken on the role of gewgaws on our mantle. I walk by them countless times a day, and they make me grin from ear to ear. While I rattle on about beauteous books, I might as well make a confession. I'm definitely a girl who judges a book by its cover. Anyone else guilty as charged?
A few deliciously designed covers my fellow book snobs might enjoy...
A few books I'm itching to read or revisit...
