  1. Sonia, the artwork is very illusional and interesting. It's so nice of you to highlight the books of the blogging community. You must have enjoyed it!

  2. I still haven't put my book photos on my blog--perhaps tomorrow--but I am loving the connection with fellow readers and book people. Thank you for this theme.

  3. The art photography is terrific! Thanks for the link, Sonia.

  4. Sonia, meus livros são na maioria de culinária, heeheh e não ficariam bem lá no patch. O que gostei foi do furacão Sonia que passou nos blogs e fez as pessoas se mexerem e dividirem suas estantes com o mundo todo, parabéns pela iniciativa! Bjs!

  5. Oh Sonia, a post after my own heart: BOOKS! I think the ones pictured here might be called altered books.

    I do not collect many books myself, only what I need to refer to over and over - I prefer instead to borrow from libraries - I am a bit of a library junkie! But I am happy to follow the links you've listed to other book lovers, especially the one who lives in my own beloved Melbourne!

  6. These photos are "too cool for school" - I love them! My favourite is the first one - it's beautiful.
    I wonder how he got those books to stay in that arch?
    Thank you for the link to my blog. You are very kind and encouraging to a "newbie".

  7. Oh, I'm loving your books topic and I haven't forgotten about posting...will do so soon!

  8. Sonia,
    I had to run quickly over to tell you that I was thinking of you 3 times the last 36 hours:
    Yesterday morning while photographing a Jacaranda tree,
    then while looking at Britt_Arnhild's blog and you library shelves (I have to come back to you with mine *g*)
    and again Yesterday while searching for a certain line in "Leaves of Grass" - global thinking, isn't it?
    Gotta run, but will be back (with book being my great passion!!!),
    a sweet hug from Vienna,
    It's always so nice to see you on my blog,

  9. Sonia,
    fotos muito bacanas.
    Sua iniciativa me motivou a organizar os meus livros. E contaminou minha filha. Que agora é fanática por livros de Direito, sua futura profissão.
    Beijos e bom fds!
