** Thank you so much Christina for this gift. Couldn’t have asked for anything better **

Bibliophile is a collection of novel lists, literary facts, and essentially everything bookish. The book is simple and very visual, with artistic renditions of book covers and book stacks. The cover gives you a pretty good glimpse of what’s inside as well, but every page is picturesque and an art piece of its own. I couldn’t help but include a few photos.

The book lists are a joy to read, since they include all genres and all time eras. Each book list has a small introduction as well as literary facts about select books. And of course, each book list includes a full page picture of a book stack.Image result for bibliophile"

In addition to book lists are:

  • Bookish Recommendations
  • Beloved Bookstores
  • Striking Libraries
  • Beloved Pets
  • Writing Rooms
  • etc

There’s always a delight and joy when scanning through the stacks to find some of your own favorite reads or browsing through the featured bookstores to find one from your own home city. It’s hard not to add new books to your TBR after reading Bibliophile. It’s definitely a book that pulls you in for a reread.

I highly recommend as a gift for any bibliophile.
