Monday inspiration – Living with beautiful books

I really enjoy reading and those of you who follow me on Twitter will know I’m also part of a book club. My book taste is fairly eclectic but neatly falls into two categories – interesting fiction and design books. I find that literature can inspire me in so many ways – to go to places, to research and find out more, or just to whisk me away to another time or place.

Recently I’ve been re-reading some classics and my family thoughtfully decided to combine books with design and gave me a set of beautiful cloth covered books. Some are Clothbound Penguin Classics and some by White’s Books.

In September’s issue of Elle Décor Gwyneth Paltrow revealed her favorite things and her shortlist also includes clothbound Penguin classic’s (as well as De Gournay wallpaper – sigh). 

Maybe she should join my book club?
