Serious envy for that dining room, the bookshelves, and the combo. did this lovely round-up of Dining Rooms with Beautiful Bookshelves.

Here are some other things found while browsing the web this week:

10 Important Life Lessons From Children’s Books.

The Library of Congress has compiled a list of   “Books That Shaped America,” which includes some of my favorites like Charlotte’s Web and On the Road.

Do you create summer reading lists? Elizabeth of E Tells Tales shares hers here.
