After last month’s place cards were dedicated to my partner’s interests since it was his birthday month, I decided to base this month’s design on one of my interests that doesn’t come very often on the blog: reading!
I’ve always loved reading. I enjoy reading a wide variety of books; young adult, psychological thrillers, non-fiction, biographies, poetry, etc.
Whilst I no longer collect books for many reasons, back when I did, there were none that I enjoyed looking at on my shelves more than the orange Penguin Classics. There is just something so satisfying about having all my books stand at the same height, and all be the same colour!
Plus, the Penguin Classics are always a great price at any book store (and no, this isn’t a sponsored post for them, I swear 😂), and as someone who encourages giving anyone and everyone the chance to read the world’s best books, I appreciate that a lot.
