Bookshelf Porn … You’ll Know it When You See It

This is not my beautiful house, but oh, how I wish it were.
Look at those books!  Shelves and shelves of them!

And wow! Get a load of this bad boy!  Gorgeous!

I’m feeling flushed and giddy!  Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I just spent the afternoon in the self-indulgent pursuit of the biblio-rotic.  I’m talking about Bookshelf Porn.  That’s right, I’ll cop to it, and I won’t be ashamed!

Bookshelf Porn as the website says “is porn for book lovers.  A photoblog collection of all the best bookshelf photos for people who *heart* bookshelves.”

nom-nom-nom:  Clair Olivia WaymanI’m a book lover.  I ♥ all things book, and after spending time at this site, I have to admit that I ♥ bookshelves, too.  Now I’m lusting after about 99% of the shelves I gawked at.

All this book love made me think of my favorite Groucho Marx quote:

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend.  Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

While we’re on the subject, Groucho also said,

“I find television very educating.  Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”

I’ll admit, I probably spent nearly two hours looking at all those gorgeous bookshelf pictures, so now,  if you’ll please excuse me … I need to go read.

Take that, Kindle!
