books and more books

From time to time, I've seen photos of books and favorite pages posted on other people's blogs. These are some of my favorite kinds of posts to read.

I've been an avid collector of books since I was in high school, and to this day, one of my favorite things to look at when I'm visiting someone is their book collection.

In the spirit of sharing alike, here are a few of my favorites, some of the books that I keep in my favorite bookcase.










What are your favorite books, and where do you keep them?

I'm also an avid collector of books, a bibliophile if you will. Lately I've had to cut my collection in half to accommodate my cross-country move into a one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend. But that just gives me more reason to buy new books there. My favorite ones are "The Aeniad" in Latin, an 1890 edition of "Alice in Wonderland" with Tenniel's illustrations, of course, and the copy of "Princess Bride" my dad gave to me when I was little. And I agree, peeking at other people's collections is so much fun.

Oh, I love old books! Your Alice in Wonderland sounds amazing - I'll admit I'm a little jealous. :)
