Being Married to a Reader: Gazing Lovingly at... Books, Estelle - […] → I buy more books than he does. → I read all different times a day, and he only reads at night. → He hates reading on his iPad. I quite like my Nook. → I take it super personally when he turns on his side to read in bed. (It’s silly, I know.) → Our bookshelves are mostly filled with my books. → He’s not a fan of YA.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Aww… I just stumbled across this while looking for a review! I love your pictures — you’re just beautiful in all of them! My husband and I had a book themed wedding as well (I should post some pics from ours as well) as we met in a bookstore =) We made books for our centrepieces which, like your coffee filter flowers, looked awesome, but took SO MUCH time and energy! Thanks so much for sharing this with us all!

Lauren Elise - This was fun seeing these pictures again Estelle! This year has flown by. You are too sweet to mention me. It was so fun chatting and helping you before your big day. I was so glad to be helpful. You and James are such a cute couple and I wish you both all the best in year two and in the many more to come after that.

Jasmine Rose - That is so cool! My husband and I just got married in December and I’m really sad we never thought to incorporate books into the decor. We both love books and reading, but it just never occurred to me. Your wedding was gorgeous. Congrats on 1 year :]
