Anthropologie is holding a book drive this holiday season, 

so while you're at their website stocking up on these

or this

or this 

or (sigh) these

please add one or two (or more!) of these

to your shopping cart.  
They will be donated to Reader to Reader
a nonprofit organization dedicated to stocking the shelves 
of public schools and libraries.  


  1. A wonderful cause, and these books are so, so beautiful. Love this collection.

  2. What a great concept and the covers of these childrens classics are so sweet. Might stock up on copies for myself. XO

  3. Ah, brilliant! What a lovely idea, and such beautiful covers.

    And beautiful chandeliers and chairs and....oh sigh...I'll just have to go look for myself!
    (Btw just found my dream wallpaper on their website after nearly a year looking!)

  4. Which one, Ciara? I found two or three that I covet!

  5. Buying good, doing good.
    Oh, and those shoes!

  6. love it...it's what Christmas is all about

    sending Thanksgiving love to you, my friend


  7. First, the Madeline book made me smile...then, the shoes made me drool! If I could only wear heels that high these days...love them! This is a great project. I love anything that gets kids reading.

    How are you? I seem to be behind in my reading and I feel as if I haven't "seen" you for a while!

  8. Gigi ~

    I absolutely love this idea! Off to see what I can find...

    wishing you and yours a beautiful Thanksgiving!
