Happy reading,


  1. What beautiful inspirtation! I now want to get my book and read! Sadly, I won't have a chance to read for a few more hours. :(

    1. Oh, I KNOW. I had so much fun finding all the art to write this post and put images on Pinterest. Glad you liked it. Yes, I feel your pain about being too busy to read :(

  2. You have so many comments already on today's Top Ten Tuesday post that I thought I'd comment here. :-) Thanks for checking out my list and following! I'm now a follower here. :-) Love your varied book related posts. I think I'm going to join pinterest soon and think you've got an amazing board with all these (and more!) paintings of readers. If you don't mind, I just might copy the idea of this post sometime.

    1. Hi Rina,
      It was my pleasure to check out your Top Ten. Hopping through all of the amazing blogs is so much fun, and I love to find new titles that I might not have seen otherwise. Thanks for stopping by and following. I just recently joined Pinterest. It's such a great place to be inspired, but it's VERY addicting! I'm glad you enjoyed looking at the art as much as I did finding it.
