Bookworm Paradise

I love books! What else is new?

I also love collecting pictures of bookshelves, because being surrounded by books makes me happy!

Let me invite you today to Bookworm Paradise!

The ultimate for a bookworm is to have books to read while have a long and luxurious soak in a tub! Believe me, it’s divine. When I was about ten, we lived in a large bungalow and I had one massive bathroom, complete with an old-fashioned bathtub. During the summer holidays, I would sneak in a book, fill up the tub and soak while I read! Times have changed, but I can still dream of this happening again, can’t I? While I’m dreaming,  it wouldn’t hurt to look at these:

While I’ve moved on to reading my Kindle in bed, I’m not averse to having bookshelves in my bedroom. Sample these dream bedrooms:

Fancy a book nook? I think it’s the stuff that a bookworm’s dreams are made of! Take your pick.

I hope you have as much looking at these as I did putting this post together. Which one of them would you like for your home?

    Lovely pictures. I’m dreaming of transforming my reading room at the moment and am collecting images on Pinterest. I need to find a way of displaying all the books I’m still meaning to read!

    I love books, but I’m not a fan of bookshelves or pictures of bookshelves. So, my vote goes to NOTA!

    Oooh, lovely!! Right now, by bed is my reading corner, with magazines and books strewn on the side table πŸ™‚

    I love ALL of those! But my favourite is the one in the green nook as long as there is a big window opposite facing a treed garden! So I can look/read close on the book and look far in the distance at a beautiful view. By the way, HOW does one read a book in a bathtub and not get it wet? I never read or read in a bathtub…curious… πŸ˜‰ <3

    How would you choose? Gosh, I think my favorite is the nook — the darker one, hidden in the corner.

    This simply looks like a slice of heaven right here on earth! β™₯

    totally drooling … πŸ™‚ ..would love to soak in a tub and read ….

    Your favourite is my fav too πŸ™‚ The other two book-nooks are quite cool too! Though I am not so cool with the idea of books in the bathroom. I am also a bit wary of using books more as a decorating prop, which I see often being encouraged in design magazines etc. Books are meant to be used as books – to be opened, read, re-read, devoured, and taken care of. Not simply decorated.
    What a wonderful co-incidence, today I too did a post on books!

    OH!! I just loved these!! Tempting! I am surely going have one of these in my home! Part of Paradise right in my home! <3

    I have my own collection of book shelf pics and used to drool at them for hours at times. But when I make my home, there’s definitely gonna be a book nook. Fingers Crossed! πŸ™‚

    These are nice collections of shelves. The rooms are brightly lit with knowledge and look comfortably inviting too. We have a a library like study in our home which is over-flowing with books(our fav spot in home)… awesome collection! Btw never thought of reading in bathtub- sounds cool!!!

  15. Shailaja V Shailaja V August 18, 2014

    Very very nice shelves, Corinne! I adore bookshelves and keep dreaming of a home like the ones above. Sigh.. only in my dreams πŸ™‚

  16. Vidya Sury Vidya Sury August 18, 2014

    Drool, drool!

    I have a collection of bookshelf pictures and none of these are in it, can you imagine? So I can get my revenge πŸ˜€

    But seriously, I would like one of these for my birthday. Yes.

    At the very least we could get away somewhere where we can soak in a bathtub and read no? πŸ˜€

    Love the post. Like a mini-vacation to see the pictures, Corinne!
