book nook & a winner!
on this monday-ie Monday, I'm wishing I was curled up in a cozy place reading the day away...
What am I reading? -- Her Fearful Symmetry & 50 Things Your Life Doesn't Need.
I'm not very good about spending time reading. I love books, but start so many without finishing them. How bout you? Are you a big reader? What are you reading? Are you in a book club?

Great pics, as always.
I do love to read. My favorite is Victoria Holt. I'm currently reading How to Make an American Quilt. I'm only halfway through though. I love it!
Another favorite of mine is Having Our Say by the Delany Sisters. Have you read this book? It's great. I found it sitting on a bookstore and instantly recognized the name of the sisters so I bought it at a really cheap price!
How I wish I had corners like these where I can curl up with my book!
Love that last room :)ReplyDelete
And yes I am a big reader, but I tend to read only in bed before I fall asleep!
Have a lovely Monday!
Love the pictures. I used to be a big reader when I was younger, like I can finish 2 a day but now it takes me forever to finish a book.ReplyDelete
That white seat in the background of picture 2, is my dream seat!!!!!ReplyDelete
And your books sounds really interesting, but I have the same problem as you with finishing them.. so less time, so many books...
I absolutely love to read, but I can usually only do so in the summertime when I'm not teaching and have more time on my hands ;)ReplyDelete
I love to read and haven't in ages. There is quite a pile of books stacking up in my room waiting for me. I was in a book club for a couple years but when I started my business I found I couldn't get the books read in time so I dropped out. I do miss it.ReplyDelete
i'm not really a reader, though i'd love to be. there are a few books that i've gotten sucked into and finished within a few days, but that doesn't happen often.ReplyDelete
What a lovely idea.ReplyDelete
I LOVE reading, but I always feel bad when I'm reading for pleasure during the semester... like I should be actually reading my textbooks!ReplyDelete
Oh I do love that first living room, the big artwork! I'm reading "Little Bee" for the book club bloggers. and planning on starting my own "real life" one here, haha :)ReplyDelete
I just finished reading Storyville by Lois Battle. I really liked it! Love that curtain in the second picture!ReplyDelete
HUGE reader (haha obviously--I'm in grad school for creative writing and publishing!)ReplyDelete
Just finished re-reading "Love Walked In" by Marisa de los Santos, it's one of my top favorites, I highly suggest it!
And last night I started "This Is Where I Leave You" by Jonathan Tropper--it's REALLY entertaining, so I think it'll be a breezy read!
Happy Monday :)

That third picture of the bedroom looks very pretty!ReplyDelete
Lieve groet, Madelief
the first image is really lovely!!ReplyDelete
You're right - today is a perfect day to curl up with a blanket and a good book. I love to read. Right now I'm in the middle of reading Shauna Niequist's Bittersweet. I absolutely love it, and definitely recommend it!ReplyDelete
Blair, you are not the only one who starts so many books without finishing. You should do a book review on The 50 Things Your Life Doesn't Need. I am very interested in it!ReplyDelete
Congrats Chloe!!!! That is an uber win, if I do say so! And I do.ReplyDelete
I'm currently reading Dreamers of the Day and really enjoying it. I love reading, but my grad school work takes up most of my time. Ironically, I'm studying to be a librarian. Anyway, how do you like Her Fearful Symmetry? I thought the plot was interesting, but certain parts were pretty disturbing.ReplyDelete
Oh sigh. These photos make me not want to me at work Miss Blair. I am reading Still Alice right now, very good so far but like you, I too find it hard to find time to read. When can we get together you and I?! lol xoxoxReplyDelete
Oh I wish I was curled up in these spaces reading. It's been such a busy day. I'm reading "The Girl who played with Fire". The sequel to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". It's pretty good!! =) Ooo That's the same author of "The Time Traveler's Wife" who wrote "Her Fearful Symmetry". Let us know how that is!! =)ReplyDelete
SO cozy. LOVE THIS. im not really a readdder but I do like magazines and quite time books :) I'd love to be there and relaxing!ReplyDelete
i love these nooks- esp #3! :)ReplyDelete
i LOVE reading... but when life gets busy that's one of the first things that i neglect.ReplyDelete
hope all is well friend!!!
i'm not really big on reading... i wish i were tho b/c it's the perfect thing to do when you're on the plane!!ReplyDelete
That last bed is perfect for cuddling up with a great book! I do like to read. I find there is a lot less time for it since starting my blog. I am reading the new Nicholas Sparks book at the moment. xoReplyDelete

I would love to be in a book club! I am reading a few diff books right now...Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Love & Respect, Crazy Love...Its no wonder I never finish them!
i love to read (i was an english lit. major!) but i find very little time for it these days. i really want to read "my life in france" by julia child.ReplyDelete
I wish I could find a book club to join!ReplyDelete
I just finished reading The Girl Who Played with Fire and now I'm reading The Romantics.
Love these!!! I want all of them please.ReplyDelete
