here's one for the books


A collection of books is like an old friend. Surrounding ourselves with our favorite books can be quite comforting. They take us to faraway lands and distant times and not only that, but they can enrich our lives.

Books are a beautiful thing, whether we’re reading them or just enjoying their beauty artfully displayed in our homes.


“A room without books is like a body without 
a soul.”  Marcus Tullius Cicero


There are many little ways to enlarge your
child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
--Jackie Kennedy


“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.” 
 
Stephen King


“There is no friend as loyal as a book.” 
 
Ernest Hemingway


“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: 
this is the ideal life.”  Mark Twain

  1. I love entering a room with built-in bookcases. I always feel they add such warmth to any room, and then too...it's always fun to check out the books that are on the shelves. You can tell a lot about a person just by checking out what books they enjoy reading! ~~Carol in San Diego
