Homage to books

Rainy days and grey skies make me want to

leave the outside world behind and retreat

to a space over-flowing with books.

I love books-- the feel of the heavy paper as it slides

through my fingers, the heft of the binding,

the texture of the cover, the march of words

across the page.

Electronic readers just do not afford the same luxury

to me as picking up a book and getting lost in its pages.

Wishing you warm, cozy and magical days this fall.

Until next time...

  1. Hi Anne, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I need to catch up on yours as well. I'm a huge book lover too. Your post reminded me of how much I loved visits to the library when we were kids, especially in the summer when it was hot outside and the library was cool and filled with as many books as we wanted to read. I love the smell of a library, do you know what I mean?

  2. Looks like we share an affinity for books. I couldn't agree more, no reader compares to holding a book and turning pages. I can't get enough books, they are everywhere around here. Hope you are doing well sweetie, thanks for stopping by to see me. Hugs-Carrie
