libre

My blog has already turned TWO years old and I have somehow failed to take notice of this until days after its birthday into the internet world! I actually began this blog after first meeting my dear friend Kime Buzzelli, who had just began her own blog not much longer before. My blog as evolved and devolved and continues to change with me and whatever suits me at a certain point. I think we can all agree though, the best thing for my blog was when I got a Livejournal. Something I fear for the day I out grow that.

On with today's post. I dream, absolutely fantasize about one day having a library. I want tons of books, and If you ever want/need/have to buy me a present I would love to receive books. Right now in my room I have a meager collection of books in comparison to what I imagine, but I have come t0 face the reality to make due with the space I have. I love my little library, don't get me wrong, but it is only just beginning.
In the recent weeks these are my top three favorite ways of displaying books:

1. The color coded bookshelves. Forget alphabetizing, going by size, or subject matter. I get so excited thinking about doing this, then I get nervous, if my books in a series have different color spines they become separated.

2. Making use of the space you have. Aside from this room being beautiful, these books are arranged to fit their space. The most realistic approach, and closest to home.
3. I'm sure people have seen this one around on other blogs. Not only is it the coolest staircase ever, it also utilizes a small space, has beautiful reading light and a place to sit while looking for that specific book.
This is all I have for today. And don't forget I love books! Art books especially, I even have a amazon wish list going. It is out of control.
