Book love: Light Changes Everything

“I blame the beginning of the whole thing on Jane Austen.”

The first sentence of Light Changes Everything, a newish novel of historical fiction by Nancy E. Turner, totally hooked me, and the rest of the story reeled me in, all the way to the glorious conclusion. I’d love to share the closing lines, which are beautiful and soul-satisfying and perfect, but I won’t, because I think you should read this marvelous book. :)

Creative bookshelves!

My own bookshelves are sadly conventional, but I will always look with deep interest at more innovative ones. Here are a few that recently caught my eye. (Thanks, Bored Panda!)

Any of these get your bookish heart thumping? :)

Tsundoku!

A new word for me. Tsundoku:

Buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands.

Can I relate? Big-time! You?

By the way, did you notice the title of the book she’s reading? ;)
