{but you knew that if you remember reading about my 
Downton Abbey Valentine's Tea and Book Exchange}

With all of the electronic ways to read books I just don't want real books to disappear from my home. I grew up in a home with a LIBRARY and there is just something special about bookshelves and the treasures that they hold. Books are fabulous ways to add character to your home. 

I'm sure you've seen a TON of ways to use books as decor...
but have you ever thought to

Simple Details
My #1 rule for decorating is turning books backwards when using them as decorating elements....this is also the #1 thing guests comment on when they come to my house.  The practice pretty much makes everyone else's head explode.  Oh well!
Cline Rose
backwards soft copy books, who knew they had so much color and texture
Vreeland Road
Nordic Bliss

In the Fun Lane

My Sweet Savannah

It may take you an hour to find your copy of  "To Kill A Mockingbird" but change it up a bit and see what you think!

In a few weeks DOWNTON ABBEY will be returning to PBS Masterpiece I'll be returning to my 
Downton Reviews + Book and Movie Club Posts! Can't wait to see your comments and get back on the Downton wagon with all of you!
