My inbox has been flooded with “back to school” emails. Is it really that time of year already?!?
I like to start each summer with a stack of beach reading books. Maybe it’s a habit learned after years of school assigned summer reading lists. After all this time, the issue at the end of the summer remains the same…what to do with all of those recently read books? If you’re like me, your bookshelves are already stuffed to the gills. So we found some of our favorite artists who offer a more creative solution to book display.
