Read a good...."ok" lately?

Here is my start on the Old Books sampler.

Eventually it will read "old books are like old friends," and the word "books" is written across the spines of five books. the only thing I'm not crazy about is the look of the book spines, so I've been tinkering with the colors already! The lettering was supposed to be done in 310 black, but I'm using WDW "Mascara" instead (almost the same, but a teeny bit softer, I think), and the brown Vs in the left-hand book are done in Six-Strand Sweets' "Fig Pudding." I have some other hand-dyed substitutions planned, too.
