Books are one of my favorite things. I love to read them, collect them, and decorate with them. The older they are the better. When I was a little girl I used to pick out the oldest, loveliest books my mother had lying around and I'd pretend I was a princess on a long journey, with a book as my one prized possession. I still love beautiful old books today and if there is a lovely story inside of them I love them even more. Here are a few bookie pictures I've found and saved.
