Bookshelf Porn

>> Friday, July 30, 2010

Hrmm...no. Not the kind of porn you put on the shelf, but rather the shelf itself! I found Bookshelf Porn via Oh Joy!'s tweets (You must see her blog, it's what inspired me to start blogging!) and have been trawling through the pages of bookshelves all morning. Some beautiful, some classic, some broken and some blue. I completely agree with the following quote, nothing will ever replace acutally turning the paper page of a book...

{my personal favourite, above}

Featuring a book on your bookshelf is akin to displaying a trophy. You’ve accomplished something in reading a book; it feels like a victory. The opportunity to display your literary conquests in unique or unexpected ways is something I will greatly miss with e-readers.
