"I have many leather bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany" - Anchorman

Classic books.  Antique books. Old books. Vintage books.  Weathered books. Although I should never judge a book by it's cover, I just cannot resist any hard-covered piece of literature that just oozes character. I think they make the most stunning collector's items, and I may just resolve to  become a collector of olden-day style books. Sounds like a fun 2011 hobby for me to take up.

  1. Wow, those are some beautiful old books! I totally agree with you. I adore going to secondhand bookstores and giving some lovely old classics a new home. My favourite find is a 1948 edition of Little Women with the most darling illustrations! Thanks for this post, just wanted to say that I love reading your blog!
