Little book of ♥ books

A present for an avid reader. A little book of books - 10 of my favourite books. It was so difficult to choose and describe each one on 1 page.

Do you know which book would definitely be on your list of 10?

uh, da gäb es viele ... eine schöne idee! ... vielleicht "der tod in venedig" und "zusammen ist man weniger allein" und "siddartha" und "babettes fest" und ... welche stehen denn nun auf deiner top 10?

This is such a great idea! I just love it. I'm an avid reader so it would be hard for me to chose just ten. The book is very cute too.

Some of my favorite authors:
Barbara Kingsolver
Evelyn Waugh
Rosamund Pilcher
Jane Austen

confederacy of dunces
the unbearable lightness of being
the heart is a lonely hunter
east of eden

oh yeah what a great idea!

Excellent, new recommendations.

@lingonsmak.Right you are, I should have included them in the post.

+ The God of small things
+ If nobody speaks of remarkable things
+ Mosquito Coast
+ Atonement
+ Wind-up Bird Chronicle
+ Blindness
+ The secret history
+ Die Entdeckung der Langsamkeit
+ To kill a mockingbird
+ Revolutionary Road

What a great idea!
10 are way too few, actually, but I would definitely choose The book thief, I think.

I second The Book Thief and Atonement. Also: Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton.

Tolle Idee!

I like very much this idea! And the book which you show is very attractive, I like colors and presentation. I too like very much realizing mini-books to organize my inspirations, at the moment I make notebooks of researches on colors and patterns.
Have a nice day :)

In my list of then it will be for sure: "el caçador d'estels" from Khaled Hoselini.

A mi también me gusta mucho ir a la biblioteca, me encanta el ambiente que hay allí! Sobretodo cuando puedo ir a mirar tranquilamente.
Hasta pronto!!

Thank you all. I'll definitely be checking out your suggestions.
