Do you ever think about all the old clothes, furniture, keepsakes and books you’ve discarded, lost or given away over the years? For years I had quite a library of books, I was an English major (believe it or not!) and over the course of my twenties and thirties I acquired a pretty large library of books. I had bookshelves in every house I lived in, and I would read and re-read books over and over. Well, along the way I got rid of or gave away this library, and a big part of me is happy it’s gone, I’m a minimalist at heart and I love to read on my ipad, if something interests me I can pop over to Safari and Google it, it’s neat, it’s clean, it’s organized. But I still am such a sucker for a beautiful bookshelf, these are some of my latest faves!
