Great Gifts For Book Lovers

There’s nothing like moving to prove just how BIG your book collection has grown. When you add together my library AND my daughters, the pages are countless and displaying them becomes a tricky art. Are you a bookcase kinda gal? Do you keep books in one spot, or all around the house? Stacked or piled, in rows, alphabetized?

No matter how you like to style your books, cute book ends make your numerous tombs look neat and stylish. And it couldn’t be more simple! Liven up your spring decor with these picks for 2013. Enjoy!

PS. Want to know my moving trick for carrying a LOT of books without breaking your back? Forget about boxes! Grab a bunch of those reusable grocery bags that live in your truck or kitchen cupboards, and stack your books in there. You can only carry so many at once, and no one will curse your name when the bottom of the book-box breaks open onto their feet. Success!
