So, I wanted to dedicate a few images to books, gorgeous shelf displays and home libraries which will hopefully inspire a few of you to head on out to your local bookstore - and maybe even read a book or two with your children.

Books in every color, size and shape are the nicest way to bring warmth to any room.
Not only can the stories transport you but it can bring families together.
Why not start a book club with your children? They should be inspired to read and feel confident in choosing different genres and knowing what they like and don't like ..and you can discover new stories with them.
