Books are a glorious escape to another world, even though I love my world. Books are how I find out stuff. Books bring me comfort and delight. Blogs are wonderful too. I've just been having a grand catch-up on yours and now my poor brain is teaming with mould and mice and motherless lambs. Oh and thanks so much for the earworm - King Caractacus and me go way back!
Books are the people who talk to me inside my head. ☺
Books are..overflowing my shelves and taking over my house :-)Books are...knowledge, comfort, escape and reality.And while I have more books than I know what to do with or how to store, I am not a book tragic...no not at all. I have actually ceased buying books and try to trade or use the library a lot more now. I have overcome the need to own every good book I see. Huh, who am I kidding??!!Yes, it's mehttp://mummasplace.blogspot.com
I have a lot of books and I dread the day when they are no longer around because of kindles. I have a stack beside my bed and just like mummasplace, they are taking over my house. I went to a B&B one time and they had books EVERYWHERE. I loved it. When I was in 2nd grade we had to recite a poem in front of the class. I choseIt's like a magic carpetwherever you may lookwhen you turn the pages of a lovely picture book.It carries you to placesto mountain, sea, and hillBut when you close the cover,You find your sitting still.I love books.Cindy Bee
I love books and I think Ganeida really summed it up so well- they are my friends:)
Two links for you"http://www.lib.fsu.edu/TheFutureOfTheBook/program.html http://booksandpublishing.com/conference-2011/ I would like to have been at the first one--the listserv discussion has been great. No hope of getting to the first one although I think it's "only" in Canada this year--still too far for my work.
I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
