What are you all going to be doing this weekend?
I'm going to be finishing my current book 'Hand In Glove' by Robert Goddard. He's probably my second favourite author after Phil Rickman, and I've read this one before (you can tell by its slightly 'weather beaten' condition), but felt like the company of an old friend this week!
Now, if only I had a library like this astoundingly glorious room from one of my favourite design firms Pample Mousse Design Inc to finish reading it in.
Remember the house with the sheep in the living room a while back? That was the folks from Pample Mousse.
My heart skipped a beat the first time I saw this image.... absolute book lovers' heaven.
Not much to ask is it? That room, with some of these books.... sigh.
Happy weekend everyone!
May you find something amazing and wonderful to immerse yourself in.
Sandy from the fab blog Ampersand Design left a link to the site in the comments section of my '8 Simple Tips To Help Your Child Read' post, and it's truly fabulous! Lots and lots of great info, competitions, and things to do for book lovers of all ages. Thanks Sandy!
