An intellectual or literary woman.

I collect beautiful editions of my favorite books, and it wasn't until I discovered #bookstagram that I found I was not alone in this pursuit. I don't judge a book by its cover, but I do think that every wonderful book deserves a cover that is a work of art.

Once I started my account and began to share my collection, I noticed that many of my followers didn't know how to find the editions in my photos. In my opinion, this is because of two problems: publishers do not make the ISBNs of their special editions readily available, and book collecting is something of a long-lost art.

This blog is intended to document my book collections and recommendations, and to help my fellow bibliophiles add to their own home libraries. I have tried to give credit where it is due, because so many of my books were discovered with the help of my dear friends. Additionally, this site makes use of referral links from Amazon, Book Depository, and Obvious State, so I receive a small percentage of each sale. Rest assured that I am only recommending books and products I love -- if they're on my blog, that means I've already purchased them!

Thanks for stopping by, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any requests.

Love, Jen
