LIVING WITH BOOKS in the country.

Books, Books, I love books. Not just because of the pretty pictures and or wonderful stories inside but because of the tactile sensation of holding and reading a book. It can be very relaxing. I also love getting to the end (when something unexpected happens) and just re-reading some of the pages over again. Here are some great country places that incorporate books into the decor.
