Books

The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.  ~James Bryce


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.  ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves," New York Times, 7 August 1991


Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.  ~Attributed to Groucho Marx


The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.  ~Andrew Ross


A house without books is like a room without windows.  ~Heinrich Mann

  1. HI Jenny! You stopped by my blog last week and so I wanted to see your blog and say hello. I love your photography! Beautiful. And such cute little children too. I noticed you are from SC. We used to live in Lake Wylie, SC about 8 years ago.
    By the way, I love books too. I'm not a clothes shopping kind of gal. I'm a book shopper. Seems we have a lot in common. Stop back by soon!
