Books – the best antidote against the marsh-gas of boredom and vacuity.  ~George Steiner

Books can be dangerous.  The best ones should be labeled “This could change your life.”  ~Helen Exley

Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

One of the best things my mother ever did for me was foster my love of reading and of books.  Once I learned how to read, she always made sure that I had plenty at my disposal.  She bought me “Classic’s for Kids” when I was in the 4th grade.  Pretty sure I was the only 4th grader who fell in love with “A Tale of Two Cities” and “The Works of Edgar Allen Poe”.  Its an amazing gift she gave me that I will forever be thankful for.

 You can escape into a book for however long you desire.   They give comfort, enjoyment, cure boredom and massage your brain into thinking.  I borrow books from the library, but I prefer to own them.  Hey, some people collect salt and pepper shakers, so no judging 🙂  I love my stack and shelves of books.  I love marking the pages.  I love re-reading a book I haven’t read in a few years and looking at it in a completley different way then I did the first time.

My good friend Nancy is a an amazing writer and published author.   When I bought her book and held it, I was in complete and utter awe.  She followed her heart’s desire and has a piece of immortality.

Someday, when I am a published author, I hope that my book is on someone’s shelf too. 




 Book’s are a fevered  passion of mine.
