What Are You Reading?

I am about to load up my library queue ("the Netflix for books!"*) with some new reads. I have over 140 books in my "to read" list on Goodreads, where I store all the books I want to read, so I certainly have no shortage from which to choose!

What are you, dear readers, reading right now? Any recommendations for me?

Also, aren't these newly designed hardcovers from Coralie Bickford-Smith for these Penguin classics beautiful? My bookshelves would love to display these!

Found on Amazon for $13.60 (sold elsewhere for $20)

Christmas gift for my book-loving husband?

* Trying once to encourage a friend to use the library, where reserving books online makes it oh-so-easy, I told her to think of it as the Netflix for books. She thought this was hilarious, as the library is The Original for checking out materials instead of buying.

Can I tell you how much I've been swooning over these books - A LOT.

I was hoping they would have a copy of Anne of Green Gables, but no.

I bought a vintage copy on Etsy last week. I like to decorate with vintage books I'll actually read again.
