Reading Rainbow

28 Mar

I am fortunate enough to have built in bookshelves in my bedroom. Before you get too jealous, you should also know that I technically live in the den, have no windows in my 10 x 10 cell, and my “closet” also houses the water heater.

But I do have those lovely bookshelves, and recently I realized I was squandering their potential.

I guess I need to read more...

I decided to redecorate my bookshelves based on color in order to maximize their impact and make them a focal point of the room, rather than a haphazard smattering of books, shoes and trinkets. This process made me realize how little I actually read since I have so few new books.

New priority – read more!

Here are some other inspiring bookshelves from around the web, all from more voracious readers than me.

A pug would definitely make me read more
