I love a good book. Heartwarming feelings, new worlds, and exciting journeys – all from the comfort of a couch and…in my case…pajamas.
More importantly? I love feeing inspired by a book to make a change in my own life.
Charlotte’s Web made me a vegetarian (temporarily…)
The Hunger Games got me to take up archery.
The Book Thief inspired me to steal a copy of The Book Thief. (I’m so meta…)
I’m sharing my bookish inspiration below including photos that remind me of favorite books and bookishly nerdy youtube videos.
Happy reading. Better living.
