I heart books.

I've always had a love-hate relationship with the library.  At age 12, I literally spent my summer in the library.  As a point of reference, age 12 wasn't my shiniest or happiest year of life.  I was the ultimate geek--and my love of the library was a manifestation of my dorkiness.  

At age 20, when I was a student at Georgetown, I avoided the library like the plague.  Yes, this was counterintuitive, especially when Lauinger Library was a place to see and be seen, but I digress. 

All these things aside, I am a huge fan of books...the kind you can hold in your hand and turn the pages, not the kind with pages which turn on your Kindle screen.  I can guarantee that dream home of mine will contain a library, which is why I pretty much fell in love with these beauties the second I saw them on Anthropologie.com.

At $16.99 a pop, these Clothbound Penguin Classics for Children would add a lot of color to that future library of mine.  For now, I'll admire them from afar, but hopefully one day, I'll be able to share these real books with our future little kiddos who live in our dream home.
