“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” – Anne LaMott

    • I love walking through stacks of books – one of my favorite things. I am getting a professional blog design soon and you might see different versions of it up in the coming weeks until it is finalized. Do you like orange?

  3. That quote is wonderful – thank you.

  4. What a wonderful quote! It is so true, I learn so much from books, especially novels. And I am so glad you are participating in the Muriel Spark Reading Week. It should be fun!

  5. I am enjoying my Spark book so much! She has such a unique sense of humor.
