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!

Also funny: some of the readers’ comments.

Enjoy!
