When I was a kid I constantly had my nose stuck in a book.
OH was more of an ‘occasionally flick though a football magazine’ type of guy, so I had my fingers crossed the girls would follow in my footsteps. Not because it’s better to be one way or another, but because reading gave me so much as a child; knowledge, insight, and a chance to travel all around the world without even leaving my bedroom.
Big Sis wasn’t huge on books when she was younger but since she’s learned to read she’s found a real love for it, and I adore watching her plough through her school books. Lil Sis has always been the opposite, as soon as she could talk she was demanding that I read to her, and knew her favourites so well she’d ‘read’ the words out loud with me.
We’ve been lucky to review some fantastic titles over the last two years and have kept our growing collection in a pull-out drawer under the girls’ bunk bed. The lack of any decent book storage meant we had no other alternative, but it almost seemed disrespectful to have them all jumbled up in one messy pile.
When we were giving the chance to try out the GLTC POTTER LIBRARY TABLE I knew this was our chance to finally show off all those lovely books. The table was simple to put together – I just had to attach the legs, and fill it with books. It was sturdy, and well made, and easily fit 30+ different titles of all sizes and thicknesses.
I loved the sleek, contemporary design; not only did the library table look gorgeous in the kids’ play area, but this book storage was contemporary and perfectly showed off all the titles – although none of them were actually new, the girls were buzzing around the books like they’d never seen them before.
We’re looking forward to MANY more hours of happy reading ahead.
