I think it says a lot that I took so many pictures of Esme's Bookroom. It was inspiring and beautiful.
I have sometimes thought, wouldn't it be great to have one room of my home be a library? And here, it's an entire home of books. Better yet: they are not selfish books, sitting on the shelf for the owner to gaze upon. No, at Planet Esme's, its about sharing the wealth: "The primary purpose of the space is to serve as an inspiration, resource and meeting place for grown-ups who wish to deliver the best to children through read-aloud and literature-based education. Though the bookroom is primarily a resource center for adults, though we welcome well-behaved school-aged children (4 and up) who are accompanied by a guardian."
Perhaps I watch too much HGTV, but when I entered this welcoming sanctuary, this beautiful library, all I could think was: they need to do a show. No one would believe this book oasis exists!
