Books and more books!

Just finished packing up a load of books to take into one of my client's shops tomorrow. Although this box is a bit cumbersome, I really like it. It has a bit of a library feel, and is covered in deep chocolately-coloured linen.
I got some new papers, and I hope that the shop likes them. I think this one with the little koi on it is especially cute!
Finally, I visited the library after work today, and picked up a few books to read. I'm a bit of a slack library user, I am always taking home way too many books - when I get there, I get so greedy! All those wonderful books, all free....I have so many fines racked up, and I could only afford to pay part of them tonight so that they would restore my borrowing privleges. If Bookman the library cop from Seinfeld really existed, I would be in big trouble!

Anyhow, I am looking forward to checking out the Anna Wintour biography, and of course picked up stacks of cookbooks and decorating mags. The Nigella Lawson book looks really good - she even has a section on "meatless feasts." I really like Nigella, she is so passionate about food, and she seems like a woman who really enjoys life. Best go and get stuck into these books!

hey ellia,

you're not dumb at all! On reading my post again, I realize that it's a bit unclear. The box is my display that I take around to the shops, and I don't sell Japanese paper (alhough it's a job that I covet!), I just got some new papers that I made books with. Thanks for your nice comments on my photos! And I did get time to flick through my books...a little...

Hi Trudi, loving the books and box (and paper too). That Nigella book is really good. I got it as a Christmas present at the office. Check out that very cool Alaska from the oven, or something. Looks amazing!
