Happy National Book Lover’s Day to all of our bookworms out there! Paperback or hardback, fiction, non-fiction or crafting, books are a huge part of what we do here at The House that Lars Built. In fact, we love books so much that last year we decided to take our love one step further, and embark on a journey to create our own! If you haven’t already, take a look at it sometime and see all of the love we just had to put on paper!

In honor of this momentous occasion, we have put together a list of books to show some love to the novels, tomes, and treasures that have been influential in our learning and growing. We hope the books on this list are just as inspiring to each one of you as they have been for us! Whether you’re a logophile, a bibliomaniac, or just a simple librocubicularist (someone who likes to read in bed), we think you’ll find something to love. In the words of Frank Zappa, “so many books, so little time” so without further ado, we present to you a small fraction of some of our all-time favorites!
