Diving for Books

 

Books!  Oh, books!!

Stacks and stacks of books!

Treat them with respect, or else. They will find retribution.






How could the importance books be known?  Who knew that books would change how you view life?




P.S. When I taught, there were always boxes of books in my classrooms.  One time I went to a book warehouse, where boxes and bins of books were stacked for people to sort through. I found myself in huge boxes, where I nearly disappeared. Bought many many books for my students and the school. 

Oh, what bliss.

  4. Cool book post. And I am all about the not hording if its books. Besides, you can;t have 10 books in a library built over a lifetime. Nice to meet you. I've stopped by from Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.

  7. You are speaking my language here. Books bring me comfort, education and escape - sometimes in the same volume.

  9. My idea of bliss too! Best friends and teachers - available to everyone. I could sleep in that bed, absorb all those stories through my pores as I snooze!

  10. Isn't there a Japanese word for collecting lots of books? I seem to recall reading that a while back.

  11. I remember my grade seven teacher had a shelf of books in the back of the room and if we finished any worksheet with time to spare we were allowed to sit back there and read while everyone else kept working. I sat back there quite a bit.

  15. I do enjoy sitting down with a good book.
    I was fortunate to be able to visit a nearby second hand book shop recently and came out with three books.

    Happy reading.

    All the best Jan

  16. I love a good book and have enjoyed reading a lot this summer. I've been donating them after I'm done to thrift shops so others can enjoy them too and at a cheaper rate than I spent! Ha! I'm always happy to get a book as a gift. Rainy days are just meant for a comfy chair and a good read!
