How about a Read-a-thon AND a Giveaway!

This summer has been all about BOOKS for us!

We finally bought bookcases and started unpacking boxes of books that have been stored in the corner…for longer than I care to remember! We even have 3 more bookcases on order!

I’ve been to the library and several community book sales this summer, too. I finally joined Goodreads and the book club Brenda at Cozy Little House started. Are you on Goodreads? (email me and we can be friends on Goodreads!)

I adore your collection of books. We ran out of room in our house and I donated hundreds of books to the library. I practically cried.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh Diane, we collect the same kind of books. :-)) You'd love seeing my library too - just as I love to see yours.

Vee said...

How many bookcases does that make now? =D I used to say that I have seven, I'm up to nine. I'm hoping to hold the line. I inspected the shelves to see if we have any of the same readers, but I think yours are unique. I have none like it.

I am on Good Reads. I will have to join Brenda's club. I keep forgetting. Books are my best friends. Well, except for you for course. :)
Hugs,

We went away for the weekend and I finally got to read a book! I haven't had a chance to do that in months.....so relaxing. I couldn't possibly have storage for all the books I've read, as I'm a speed reader, nor for those that my hubby has read. He reads those dull computer learning books that are 3" thick......yuk.

Hugs,
Meri

I love your book collection. I was out at a new thrift store in town yesterday and was looking for some old books like you have but alas they didn't have any but I"ll keep checking. Right now I"m reading the "Little House" series again.. I love these books.

Susie said...

You sure have some really cute books. There's a lady named Nellie at "berries and more" who has lots of kids books, I mean lots. Check her out. xoxo,Susie

Your bookcases look so nice! I gave 2 boxes full of children books to the library last year!

Heather said...

Diane,
I have read more this summer than I ever had. I am hooked on historical fiction (romancy kind-of) from 1800's time period. I have been checking out like 3 or 4 at a time! I adore your children's book collection! I collect books like that too. Right now I am scouring antique and thrift shops to find old copies of my favorite books like Little Women, Jane Austen, etc... My husband would love your shelves!

Love and hugs, dear!
Heather

Ivy and Elephants said...

Yea, I'm finishing up "Midwife of Venice" right now, and am ready for another good book. I'll check it out.
Hugs,
Patti

You remind me of my son . . . he has more book shelves than any other furniture in his apartment! I just started a list of books I want to read on vacation. I'll have to check out that party!

Love the cover of your sweet book with the children on front. One can never have enough books!! Josie and I have been reading Henry Higgins lately. Beverly Cleary is a favorite at our house.

Great collection of books! Some look like old Grade School Readers?

Donna said...

We've been trimming down our book collection over the past couple of years. We have more to tote to the used book store too! We read more than ever now with the Kindles. But we cherish our old, vintage books. Nothing can replace those!
