I know that Kindles, Nooks, and iPads are all the rage these days for reading, but I am an “old-fashioned” girl when it comes to books- I love ’em bound and in my hand! There is just something about opening a musty book from the library, diving into an enrolling story, and spending your Saturday morning curled up reading cover-to-cover that makes me so very happy!

I spent many an afternoon growing up weaving my way through the shelves of my local library, reading back covers and picking the stories I was going to take home with me. I just love being there! Taking these pictures was like a throwback to my youth and it was so much fun. I think you can tell from my smile that Gentry + Shelves of Books = a happy girl!

    I remember taking you to the library and you'd walk out with a stack of 8-10 books, which you would read in a week!! TYJ……….
