A Delightful Romp through Pinterest’s Bookish Boards

August 11, 2014

Girl at Bookshelf imageOver at the always-fabulous Book Riot, Becky Cole has assembled links to  (and helpfully described) 15 collections of bookish images created by bookloving users of the wildly popular – and image-collection site – and notorious time-sink – Pinterest. Readers of Becky’s post provide links to several additional bookish Pinteret collections.

Thank you, Becky, for steering your fellow booklovers toward many hours of pleasant wallowing in such photogenic bibliophilic pastures!

Our favorite Facebook comment on this bookish cartoon: “I hope that at least half my literary relationships end that way.”

Dr Seuss quote

A tad strange that the photo displays zero books, but we like Dr. Seuss’s sentiment too much not to re-post!
