National Book Lovers Day

Aug 9th, 2016
Today is National Book Lovers Day! I have to admit that it’s the first time I’ve heard of it. For as long as I can remember, books have been my best friend. In celebration of our love for books, I want to share with you a favorite quote by author Lloyd Alexander,

“Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They’re always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.” — Lloyd Alexander

For me, right now those favorite books are Eckhart Tolle’s The Power Of Now and everything by Brené Brown. I usually don’t like to re-read books, but I read these again and again for the inspiration and perspectives they provide. I also am a hoarder of books, can never say no to a book sale and collect them as much for the way they look, as I do for their contents (judging a book by it’s cover, and all that!). If you want ideas on how books can be a great decorating accessory (!), do read this post and don’t forget to check out the indie book publishers at Collectivitea. Have a fantastic day!
