Just a short post to tell you that Mr. Lemur and I paid a visit to the largest used bookstore in Greenville—Mr. K’s Used Books—a while back to fill our vision of a book-themed wedding. We knew we were looking for classics and books we had read and loved, such as Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. OK, maybe that was just me; Mr. Lemur was looking at Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.
We bought each of the following books for about five dollars each-not bad for hardbound classics!
- Pride & Prejudice
- O Pioneers
- Doctor Zhivago
- Selected Stories and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin
- The Scarlet Pimpernel
- Wuthering Heights
- Mutiny on the Bounty
Here’s Mr. Lemur modeling our books…
Personal photo—he’s a dork!
Nice. But really, see how all the books are different sizes, shapes, and colors, yet have a cohesive theme? Perfect! Now I just need forty more or so…
Did you have a certain “theme” you followed for your wedding?
