It's no secret, I LOVE books. A big box of books from the post office is pure joy to me. I maintain that I never have enough time to do all the nothing that I want to, to take the many long walks that I want to, and to read all the books that I want to.
I love these book quotes...
"Wicked people never have time for reading. It’s one of the reasons for their wickedness"
** Lemony Snicket **
"If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books in their house, don’t sleep with them. I think that’s very important"
** John Waters **
"The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours"** Alan Bennett **
"It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it"** Oscar Wilde **
a few copies of a book I love, to share as gifts
Miss Ruby is delighted at the prospect of a new box. Not all boxes are equal.
One must have many different boxes scattered around the house.
Boxes which mom regularly falls over.
a few books to encourage my new interest in art journalling
a delicious pile of new books
Aaah, the joy of a new box...purrr...
Go take a look at Mary Ann Moss' blog. She has just been on a gorgeous solitary reading retreat. That is such an awesome idea. I have added a reading retreat to my bucket list. Must do this sometime. Soon.
