Welcome, bookish friend!

The Literary Lifestyle by Jules Buono is a bookish website that helps busy women looking to find their next great read or to get more from their last great read. I share the best of books and related modern lifestyle pairings in this cozy little virtual book nook. 

It’s like Reading Rainbow for women.

The tagline of this site is "where books meet lifestyle."  One of my favorite things about books is how they can inspire your lifestyle, from such things as travel to cuisine.  I focus primarily on posting "book pairings" of a book along with something inspired by that book.  

Maybe you are totally, utterly and completely bookish, like me, or maybe you are just trying to make a bit more quiet time for yourself to get engrossed in a story, and also get a little life hack here and there, this is the place for you
