• Happy Wednesday!! • I’ve been doing a lot of research lately for my thesis, so I can safely say that I have been DROWNING in books 😂. Being a history major really has its ups and downs, but I can definitely say it requires a LOT of reading. Half of my bookshelf is made up of books for my classes and ones I’ve borrowed from the library. • This bookcase is not mine (I WISH) it belongs to the most charming bookstore I have ever been in. When I was abroad in Ireland for five months I would spend afternoon after afternoon safe from the rain, perched between the piles of used books on the floor, and on the tables, and stacked all the way to the ceiling. As I’m doing my research right now I keep daydreaming about being in this little oasis. • • • #bookstagram #bookish #bookcase #bookstore #library #reading #readingnook #readingcorner #bookworm #bookaholic #bookshelf #aesthetic #cozy #fall #autumn #ireland #bibliophile #booknerd #ilovereading #ilovebooks #daydreaming
You know the old adage “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”? Well, we are making it that much easier to live by! We actually fell in love with the idea of a ‘blind date with a book’ when we were in Paris and visited @shakespeareandcoparis , where we saw this for the first time. Find us at the Ottawa Craft Fair on Oct. 13th, and give a blind date a shot! #blinddatewithabook #blinddate #dontjudgeabookbyitscover #dontjudge
YOU GUYS!!! We have discovered a treasure! While visiting grandma and grandpa in Minnesota, we found my old copy of Brown Bear from 25 years ago!! It’s totally darling and has so many quirky differences from the version I read my kids. Who wants to see some of the OG animals?? 🐻🐥🐸 ▫️ ▫️ #brownbearbrownbear #ericcarle #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #childrensbookillustrator #booksforkids #currenthomeview #rallyfeltco #feltboard #earlyliteracy #letthemread #storytime #readingcorner #readingnook #mybookshelf #classicbooks #earlychildhoodeducation #preschoolcurriculum #kindergartenclassroom #kindergardenteacher #homeschoolmom #unschooling
Helped a class put together their reading nook. Wish I had pics of the process before and during! Looking cute now! #canadianclassroom #canadianteacher #readingnook #bookcorner #classroomlibrary #orginization #gradefour #ontarioteachers #reading
Currently reading @stationcdrkelly book “Endurance”. I’ve always considered astronauts to be one of the bravest people among us but wow...this book really shows you just how brave one has to be for the sake of exploration and the advancement of the human species. The following excerpt is so beautifully written. I find it enlightening, yet very sad... ✦ “It’s hard to explain to people who haven’t lived on the ISS how much we start to miss nature. In the future there will be a word for the specific kind of nostalgia we feel for living things. We all like to listen to records of nature - rainforest, bird calls, wind in the trees. As sterile and lifeless as everything is up here, we do have windows that give us a fantastic view of Earth. It’s hard to describe the experience of looking down at the planet. I feel as though I know the Earth in an intimate way most people don’t - the coastline, terrain, mountains, and rivers. Some parts of the world, especially in Asia, are so blanketed by air pollution that they appear sick, in need of treatment or at least a chance to heal. The line of our atmosphere is as thin as a contact lens over an eye, and it’s fragility seems to demand our protection.” - Scott Kelly
Book Haul! ✨ ——————————————————————————— Today I went to my favorite discount book store with the lovely @sarahmaemouse. I was in search of “Shadow of Night” by Deborah Harkness (the second book in the All Souls Trilogy). Unfortunately I was unlucky in finding it, although I DID find the third book in the series! Woohoo! Along with a few other books of course. All of these only cost me $6! Have you read any of these books? ✨📖 ——————————————————————————— #book #books #bookstagram #bookie #bookish #booklove #bookporn #bookinstagram #booknerd #bookhaul #augustbookhaul #bookshelf #thebookiewitch #shelfie #flatlay #reading #readersofig #readingnook #library #bookphotography #booklover #bookclub #read #flatlay #vsco #vscocam #deborahharkness

P L A N T L A D Y . . . I’ve always been into natural remedies, essential oils, finding ways of helping yourself before turning to modern medicine. So when a friend recommended THE ILLUSTRATED HERBIARY by @maiatoll , I had to check it out; it’s full of info on plants and herbs that you can use for healing, health, and happiness. What I find most intriguing are the accompanying “oracle cards” that are supposed to guide your healing journey. Yeah... I’m into that woo-woo stuff 😂🔮
One thing that I love most about design is collaborating with local artists and makers. Like in this sophisticated yet playful space, where pieces by @andreasoosart bring the room to life, and a cozy reading nook with functional storage built by @jasongoodcustomcabinets keeps the space organized. Interior design by @pamelabillinghurst_design. Architecture and build by @flashhouseian. 📸 by @jodybeckphotography.

Who doesn’t love a good reading nook?
Just wrapped up The Dinner List. It’s a quick and easy read from the Women’s Fiction genre where the main character actually gets to sit down with her “5 people you’d like to have dinner with dead or alive.” Some parts were sweet, other parts annoyed me, and the story line was just okay. Recommended if you want quick, not too deep read or are into Audrey Hepburn! 👯‍♀️
I love this girlie! She has the sweetest and softest heart and I love being her mama. I love how homeschooling is allowing me more time to get to know her, to read to her, to bake cookies with her, to have poetry tea times, to garden with her, to wander, to do life together! So thankful to have been given such a gift as wonderful as she! @johnnanook
The books that made me: Was anyone else totally obsessed with the Clan of the Cave Bear series as a kid? It was always about historical fiction for me, in one way or another. Jean Auel, John Irving, Pat Conroy... their imaginations sent mine soaring. I cannot wait to hand over the first Harry Potter book to my son, or help him dive into Beverly Cleary or Ronald Dahl. What book are you reading currently? I’m halfway through Margaret Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last, and loving it. . . . #book #books #mylibrary #literature #americanliterature #booklover #bookfan #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookobsessed #bookworm #bookish #bookaholic #booknerds #booksforkids #kidsbooks #reading #readingnook #readingcorner #readingtime 📖 #readinglist #sandiegomom #sandiegomoms #sdmom #sdmoms #calimom #calimoms #calimomma
Hello book world, it’s been a hot sec! 🤟🏻But the Book Nook is BACK! 📚Currently reading.... @jpokluda new book. Anyone read it yet? Comment your current read!!
I haven't posted in a couple of days. I've been in a reading slump and have like 4 books halfway finished. It's SUPER obnoxious. I need an extended solo vacation so I can just read and veg out. #dreams . The Great Gatsby is my favorite. It's the origin of my #bookstagram name, in case you were wondering. I've been looking for more fun copies. .

A lovely day for a lovely read! When someone tells me to go my happy place, I always think of my Adirondack chair in my front yard.

Regrann from @thebookwormcafebookstore - We never get tired of folktales especially the ones with a tortoise character. Hilarious yet packed with so many moral lessons, children always love them. __ This one is about greed. Scroll right to see the moral of the story from the point of view of the Ibos people from Nigeria.

Regrann from @thebookwormcafelibrary - All the world is a lovely picture book about what makes up the world and teaching children to appreciate all these parts.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of a noisy restaurant. I'm part of the world, but don't have to talk to anyone. I spend some pockets of time alone for a quiet meal, or a cup of coffee and a book for company. Some days call for total solitude and as near silence as I can get. Some days the complete opposite, I love feeling that tug, that connection to the beat of whatever city I happen to be in. 🌱 // Do you spend time in cafes alone? . . . . . . . #solitude #readingnook #poetry #interiordesign #interior_and_living #photography #foodphotography
My first memory of shelves might be an imagined one. I’ve no way of checking it. All I know is it feels like fact and not fiction so I always view it that way. I was sat on the floor of my childhood front room, not yet even able to walk, and I gurgled with infant joy as my older brother circled around me endlessly, egged on by my glee. As I looked round, row upon row of books caught my eye: turquoise blue and orange Penguins from my parents’ university days and leather-bound books they gifted each other when their love was still very much alive. And in front of them, various objects like shells and fossils that had landed there by either accident or design. Maybe my love of shelfies started way back then: before I could walk, talk or reason. All I know is something got me where I am today, loving shelfies enough to do them with alarming regularity and enough to write a book about them. This feed is dedicated to shelfies - mine, yours, everybody’s - and is where I’ll be waxing lyrical about them, giving you tips on them and generally being a shelfie geek. Welcome to the journey!

As a hobby, I’m thinking of starting an Instagram (and maybe blog??) of thoughtful book-related rumination/ reviews/ celebrations of important literature by women. Who would be in support of/ interested in reading such a thing? If nobody is interested, I might do it anyway tbh because I think it’s just a project I want in my life. . . . . . . . #bookstagram #book #bookshelf #bookish #photo #photography #darkwood #warmcolours #read #readingnook #bookobsessed #bookworm #bookaholic #bookaddict #womenslit #womensliterature #bookblogger #womensstories #women #celebratewomen #booknerds #booktography #readingcorner #womeninspiringwomen #womenhelpingwomen #femaleauthors #women #sisterlove
QOTD: What are some of your favorite fairytale retellings? 📚 Personally I love beauty and the beast retellings, it just always sets up for great romantic tension 😉. But Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge is my favorite retelling of all! • • • • • • • • • • #spindlefire #lexahillyer #currentlyreading #Books #Bookstagram #book #library #mylibrary #bookworm #ilovetoread #2018readingchallenge #bookshelf #bookish #reading #read #goodreads #bookblogger #bookmark #readabook #readingnook #bookphotography #booknerd #booklover #bookblog #bookstagrammer #bookaholic #bookaddict #youngadult #bibliophile #instabooks
I started watching The Reader yesterday and finished this afternoon. -it’s a long movie and my attention span needs work- I’ve learned so much from this movie. The transcendence of love is incredible. To quote Interstellar, “Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't understand it.” I think love evolves within us. I believe that the subjective experience of phenomena which composes the reality of our existence, is manifested in a slower manner than love and is separate but equal in importance and influence to who we are and the nature of our being overall. I think as human beings we are merely creatures of the universe who often waste too much time trying to figure it all out. Life happens. Love happens. We happen. It is all beyond. Despite the unfortunate circumstances that inevitably bud as we bloom, we are so lucky to stem from a universe that somehow propels us to live, love, and happen. #goodreads #goodread #goodreading #goodreaders #goodbooks #goodreads 📚 #goodreadschoice #goodreadings #goodreadingmaterial #booklover #booklovers #booklove #readersnet #readingsaveslives #readerssociety #readtome #readmore #reading #readingnook #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookquotes #bookworm #bookobsessed #booknerds #reads #readabook #readingtime 📖
