This December we read Mary Poppins and discussed it after our annual #ourpleasanthomesbookclub Christmas Tea hosted by @peartree_garden. We enjoyed tea sandwiches, salads, cookies, and a fancy layered cake with a Christmas punch and tea. Then we discussed Mary Poppins, which earned a 4.15 from the group. Some of us loved the weirdness of P.L. Travers’s book and others didn’t. It’s always fun when we disagree! Looking forward to 2019 and some new old books! Merry Christmas, fellow readers! • • • #bookclub #oldbooks #MaryPoppins #PLTravers #bookofthemonth #childrensliterature #classicbooks #tea #latergram

I’ve been working on these custom bookmarks as a personal project. . . . Each of these bookmarks were inspired by the writings of C.S. Lewis. . . . I am a huge fan of Lewis especially his “Chronicles of Narnia” series and his defense of fairytales in his essay, “On Three Ways Of Writing. “ . . . I have been delighted with how well these tiny pieces of art have turned out. . . . Which of these bookmarks are your favorite?
Alright people. Let’s see if today’s the day I get my wrapping done!

I own many copies of Little Women, this is my absolute favorite. It’s just so different. Who knew there were movie tie in editions in the 30s? It’s a bit ironic though as I generally avoid all current movie tie in editions but come on, it’s the great Katharine Hepburn ❤️ #bookstagram #littlewomen #oldbooks #katharinehepburn #favoritebook
Wolves . If you had a "spirit animal" what would you be? Me, I'm a wolf. A white wolf, out in under a starry black sky. . Describing ourselves in terms like this is both very interesting and very personal. It's fascinating, and sometimes a little nerve-wracking (or maybe that's just me!). I love comparing animals to people, expecially book characters. One of my newest characters is a white wolf, like me. He's so much like me, it's almost freaky at times, yet he's also one of the realest characters I've ever written. . I fell in love with this book tapestry from @owlcrate and when it went on sale for Cyber Monday, I snatched it up!! It's BEAUTIFUL, and I LOVE the quote so much!! ❤ . #owlcrate #booktapestry #wallhanging #bookstack #wolf #whitewolf #cannotbecaged #lonewolf #wolves #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #christianbookstagram #gold #bows #spiritanimal #describing #animals #characters #book #oldbooks #quote #quotetoliveby #bookish #booknerdigans #plaid
Here's one of my arts and crafts bookshelves that's maybe from the 20's. There's two more in this room. That's an old humidor with the red poppy painted on it. Smells like tobacco. And some beautiful old books, Purple. Not sure why I buy them even. I bought a couple more this summer. Alot have signatures. Were gifts and dated. A hair ribbon is in one, somewhere. A book meant something to these people. It was knowledge, entertainment, religion. It was a thing of importance back then. . .

Tuesday. Last few hours to order your Christmas goodies. I know I just bought myself a bee sweatshirt (moment of joy!) and looking forward to receive/open it on Christmas Day. What did you get yourself this year?! Share with me!! I’m still looking for one maybe two more gifts. As much as I’ve been urging you to order early. I am always a last minute panic shopper. It’s been the same every year. I never learnt. Is that really bad?! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #oldbooks #vintagebooks #antiquebooks #sketchbook #customsketchbook #watercolorsketchbook #christmasgift #watercolor #sketchdaily #giftideas #antique #vintage #antiques #bookstagram #junkjournal #stationery #artsupplies #artcollective #holiday #antiquecollector #etsy #etsyseller #etsyshop #christmas #vintageforsale #planneraddict #handmadesketchbook #holidaygiftforher #custombujo #personalizedjournals

“People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also an expression of character.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson 🌏 #wellreadbookstore #wellread #emerson #ralphwaldoemerson #theworksofemerson #vintage #oldbooks #wholeset #faded #christmas #vintagechristmas #fultonmo #brickdistrict #smellallthebooks
📚Review: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak⁣ ⁣ Let me start off by saying that this is one of my favorite books and I cannot recommend it enough. The Book Thief chronicles the story of Liesel, a young German girl sent with her brother to live with foster parents in the face of WWII. ⁣ ⁣ The story is told through the point of view of Death, who reveals himself in several instances of collecting the souls of those passing during the war, including Leisel’s brother’s. When she and her mother are burying him, Leisel surreptitiously steals a book from one of the grave diggers, even though she can’t read. Though it’s contents are morbid, Leisel finds herself clinging to it as she suffers from painful flashbacks of her brother’s death. ⁣This is what plants the seed in her love for books. ⁣ Leisel bonds with her foster father when he teaches her how to read and this opens up a new world for her to explore, and when her town holds one of their notorious book burnings, Leisel steals another book. In the basement of their house, they color the walls with words as Liesel explores meaning and writing. Soon, a Jew in hiding named Max arrives at the house because Leisel’s foster father has promised to protect him, and Max and Liesel develop an unlikely friendship. ⁣ ⁣ This story is filled with love, friendship in the face of adversity, and tragedy. It’s another unique perspective into WWII. It has poignant moments involving empathy even in the face of fear, and perseverance even after the most disheartening and heartbreaking losses. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves emotional books and could cope with the losses that you feel is they’re your own. ⁣ 5/5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ____________________________________ #bookstagram #books #bookie #booksbooksbooks #thebookthief #reading #reader #vintagebooks #bookaddict #bookphotography #bibliophiles #bookworld #bookrecommendation #readingbooks #readersofinstagram #bookcommunity #booklove #bookish #bookshelf #bookclub #ibooks #oldbooks #blackbooks #booknerd #markuszusak #readbooks #bookblogger #read #readers #fiction

Book repair advice requested on #tribandtuesday . * I bought this vintage Penguin edition of Passenger to Teheran by Vita Sackville-West earlier in the year from a seller in the UK. The book was published in 1943, and is printed on thin wartime paper, with thin paper covers. * Unfortunately, this fragile book suffered damage in transit, and both covers separated from the text block. Surprisingly, most of the spine is still attached. * Is there any hope of repairing this? I don’t think that I’m up to the task, but could a professional give this book back its dignity? It’s been sitting flat on a shelf for months, just waiting for help. * Swipe through to see the inside of the front cover, the inside and outside of the back cover, and the spine. * Thanks for any advice! * #bookstagram #passengertoteheran #passengertotehran #vitasackvillewest #bloomsburygroup #fragilebooks #bookrepair #pinkpenguins #travelandadventure #penguinbooks #triband #needsrepair #vintagebooks #vintagepenguin #vintagepaperbacks #penguincollection #penguincollector #bookcollector #bookcollection #vintagetypewriter #antiquetypewriter #bookdesign #bookstagrammer #bookish #instabook #wartimebooks #oldbooks #travelbooks

Forever my favourite book! #childindarkness is like one of the very first short novels I've read and I nevergot tired of it or forgot about it... I loved this book and still do. So much that I decided to keep this old copy from the 1997 (it used to belong to my step granddad I 🤔 ) So I ONLY realised today(when I was unpacking) that, apparently my husband also has a copy of the same book from when he was a teenager and it also happens to be one of his favourite books... What a coincidence guys 😂... Like we are total opposites but the things we have in common are weird like this!..... It's really a beautiful book, especially for the children! ❤️
#socksunday . Végre nálunk is leesett az első hó, s ugyan bentről nézni szeretem, még nem volt kedvem kidugni az orrom a hidegbe. Inkább a kedvenc cicás pizsamanadrágomban lustálkodom ma. Néha ilyen is kell, ráadásul nem is lennék igazi #bookstagrammer , ha soha nem lenne egy vasárnapi zoknis képem. :D Igazi klisé, de alkalmanként szeretek beállni a sorba. Alkalmanként! ;) .

POR QUE LIVROS ANTIGOS TÊM O MESMO CHEIRO FORTE? Quem já entrou num sebo sabe bem que os livros antigos parecem ter o mesmo cheiro. É cheiro forte, cheiro de antigo.. sabe aquele cheiro que a gente nem sabe explicar direito do que é, mas consegue reconhecê-lo à distância? Pois agora o mistério foi esclarecido por uma pesquisa da Universidade College London, no Reino Unido. Apesar de o estudo ser inédito, a explicação é bem simples: um livro de papel é feito de material orgânico, que, por sua vez, reage ao calor, à luz, à umidade e aos químicos usados na sua produção. O cheiro característico é o resultado dessa reação, que vai ocorrendo com o passar do anos. Além disso, o manuseio dos livros pelas mãos humanas, cheias de bactérias e substâncias, e o acréscimo de clips - que com o tempo vão oxidando - às páginas dos livros têm também parcela de ‘culpa’ na composição do cheiro de livros antigos. A boa conservação dos livros ajuda inibir o cheiro forte e faz o material aumentar sua durabilidade. “A luminosidade em excesso desbota as capas e deixa as páginas amarelas, a umidade também pode deformar o miolo do livro. A poeira também é danosa aos livros”, “o ideial é que eles fiquem organizados em um ambiente com temperatura estável e, de preferência, em pé na estante. Isso vai evitar amassamentos e páginas amareladas”.
