Fantastic! I love books and I love quotes about books!

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books"

And remember:

"No matter where you go, or what you're doing, ALWAYS bring a book.

Life has more 'down-time' than you think."

(A famous quote from a guy who reads 25 books a year.)

(Well, 50 until he got married and his ol' lady won't let him--hold on--she's calling me again.)

That was so funny. I love it. I wish i enjoyed reading. I have never been a reader. For some reason my brain does not let me see the picture of what i am reading. So i get really bored.

I really like your blog.God bless you,and I hope you had a blessed Easter.
Another quotation(Groucho Marx again,I think)---"Outside of a dog,a book gives me the greatest pleasure.Inside of a dog,it's too dark to read".
