What a Beautiful Thing


"Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.” – Jane Smiley

 

This afternoon, I retrieved my mail and found a package with two books inside. Two books I have not read yet. I felt a sense of joy that has escaped me these last few weeks. Oh, how I love books. Books have been one of the most powerful and enjoyable ways for me to escape into another world. 

Thank you Susan:)

Books are akin to holy icons to me! I couldn't live without them!
