Friday Links: Bookish Gifts and Bookish Prints

It’s been a windy and rainy week here in the Bay Area, yet there are still sunny moments like this that I captured on my Instagram, that make me wildly in love with San Francisco. I was desperate for sun kisses like this in the thick of NYC cold.

  1. I thought of your post the other day when I tried to organize my book shelves according to color. I thought it was a good idea. It lasted for about a minute before I had to reorganize according to author. 🙂

    • Haha, thanks for thinking of me! I couldn’t have done it myself. My husband totally surprised me my doing it one day while I was away at work. And though I love how it looks, it’s sometimes really hard to find the book I’m looking for. So organizing by author really is more practical. 🙂

    • I just went this weekend! A bit over-priced. They were selling a galley (an un-edited first draft of a book that we usually send out to reviewers for free, with an explicit ‘not to be re-sold’ tag) for over $30. Granted it was from the 80s and now considered “vintage” but c’mon, really? Cool concept, but too rich for my tastes.
