Today's new social media addiction is Pinterest. Apparently crafty moms everywhere having been using this tool for years completely under our noses. But I got my first invite two weeks ago. What I love about it is how I can intertwine the things I post on my blog, and post them on my pin boards. I can also scour the mega-maze of images which is Pinterest looking for things that really interest me. Or don't actually interest me very much, but I pin anyways to look cool.
Of course, pinning book-related things is awesome. I love some of the photos of people's home libraries. So jealous. My two-bedroom apartment can't really compare to some of these places. I'm guessing some are actually staged magazines photos, but a few of them must be real. So, a girl can dream about having something like that one day.
A word of caution is that Pinterest can be a total time suck. I've noticed myself wasting hours looking through the image boards and re-pinning things at random. A task that usually leaves me feeling unhappy because I've wasted so much time.
But if you love booky things, I encourage you to give it a try and look at some of the things I've been pinning! http://pinterest.com/millionsofpages/
