A pile of books

Books
As part of my plan to make more time for myself in 2012 I have been enjoying some beautiful and inspiring books this year. I have always loved books. I worked in academic libraries throughout my 20s, I can always find peace and inner calm in a bookshop, and still can't imagine ever reading on a Kindle. I love being surrounded by books, even if I only have time to dip into them for ten minutes a day. They provide me with comfort, inspiration, joy and wonderful escapism. This selection covers design, photography, parenting, interior design, a novel and a huge amount of inspiration for life.

I hope you will enjoy some of these books too. I'd love to hear about what you've been reading lately.

{PS - I am not planing on running away and live as one by the way! It's just a beautiful, positive inspirational book about being happy as one, which I think in turn makes you much happier as two or even as a family of five! The illustrations and paper are gorgeous too.}

When things begin to come together...

Stop and rethink
