Since its invention many centuries ago, people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds have been fascinated with books. There is something magical about them and one cannot but wonder what it may be. Is it the way the pages fold, the expressive pictures they show, the knowledge they hold, or the many wonderful stories they tell?
Individuals and professional craftsmen from around the world have created special rooms to store book collections, and not just in the public libraries. There are many private homes that have a special area dedicated just to books, be it an entire room filled with wall-to-wall shelving, or a small nook with a bookcase and reading chair placed next to a fireplace.
The types of books found in a home library will depend on what the homeowners like to read, what hobbies they have, or what they do professionally. Outside of paperback novels and classic storybooks, one may also encounter scientific, reference and hardcover resource books, and if you are lucky, you may even find a valuable first edition, signed by its author.

My mother loves to brag about what a great reader I was (and still is). As the story goes, she was reading “Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss and I asked, “Where cat?” and pointed to the words on the page. Mom pointed to the word “cat” and I repeated, “Cat!” In that way, I taught myself to read. I was four years old. I went on to get two college degrees and become a freelance writer.
My motivation for reading then was my love for cats and a desire for something new to do. Kids today don’t often have such a motivation to read. When I was a child, there were no video games, no cell phones and no Internet. Our family couldn’t even afford a color television. That’s why personalized baby books (or personalized children’s books) can help interest a child in reading.Read More
When we started our small childcare facility here in Perth, we were at a stark beginning. We had absolutely nothing inside the building we had let and needed to find all of the necessary accouterments of a workable educational facility at a decent cost. A search online for ” Office Furniture Perth ” turned up Ideal Office Furniture and at first glance I was immediately impressed by their professional website. However, I know looks can be deceiving, so I held my judgement.
A search of their website did nothing to do away with my initial positive opinion of the place! The first things I needed to purchase were boards for writing on and for posting messages. This company offered everything I could imagine in this category, magnetic whiteboards, mobile white boards, corkboards, and pin boards even. I was duly impressed. Even more so, I was impressed by the super low prices. I did my shopping around, and these prices were the best available by far.Read More
There are not many people in the civilized world who do not know what a ‘book’ is. Described as a collection of blank, or handwritten, printed, and illustrated sheets of paper, with the pages usually fastened together on one side, books are still quite popular, even today, when technology could easily replace them.
Books are often classified according to their exterior appearance and/or content, and usually a variety of each kind can be found in any home library. If there are kids in the home, a selection of outstanding children literature will help the little ones to develop and cultivate an appreciation for books. Reading skills have to be mastered and the easiest way to do so is by offering fun and age appropriate materials.
Non-fiction books talk about real-life topics. That can be science related, about historical events, religion, politics, famous people, plants and animals, mechanical or electronic subjects and anything else that is not fictional. On the next bookshelf one may find many renowned prose or poetry masterpieces, which were translated from their language of origin, so philobiblists worldwide can also enjoy and learn from these great classics.Read More

Book lovers everywhere are faced with the same dilemma. Even if they vow that they aren’t going to buy any more books and that they’ll get them from the public library instead, their private book collections seem to grow anyway. They pick up bargain books, or a new bestseller, and friends give them books as gifts. As the books start to pile up, you’d think they could resell the ones they’ve already read. However, a true book-o-phile would rather time, though, it becomes a problem to know what to do with all those books. That’s when building a home library makes a lot of sense.
A home library doesn’t have to be a fancy, paneled room like you see in movies. All it really needs is a lot of shelves. If you don’t have a whole room to devote to your books, you can use the upper wall space you aren’t using in one of your rooms, or you can even create a library space in a closet. With 8′ ceilings, even a closet can provide a lot of room for shelving and books. If you use a closet, you can either leave the doors on in order to hide your library collection, or you can remove them to create a book nook.Read More
