This summer I have a massive reading list...so massive that I have been using it to weigh down those pesky corners on my area rugs that keep creeping up. (I realize that is what you get when you buy $20 IKEA carpets...they work for now...) Meet THE STACK.
|Still my heart....STILL|
Great Garden Design by Ian Hodgson - A fun read that is eye candy at its best. From modern to traditional and back again through the waves of taste and trend, this book is a fun, light walk through garden style and living. The sections on gardening with a conscience and a practical guide for commissioning a designer are fresh and informative.
Comfortable Country - A yard sale find that I bring out every couple years and STILL find inspiration in. Country doesn't change much...it just settles in.
Of course THOSE are just the garden and design books. I am not even counting the fiction, the junk, the magazines, the continuing Outlander series, and various things by Lisa Jo Baker. OH and THE SHACK has been on my list and literally on my bookshelf for about 3 years now with the recommendations of EVERYONE I know and love. I still have not read it. It is top of my list. I will NEVER get through my list, will I?
