biblophile or what?


Since rearranging my room, I placed a bookshelf right next to my bed. As I placed the books back on the shelf it was like going to a party...old friends, new friends a few that make you wonder how they got in there.....
I love books. I love going places and doing things that I won't have the opportunity to do in my life time any other way. I like visiting the past and having exciting adventures. I like learning things. I've always felt this way about reading and I don't see it changing any time soon.
So if from time to time I disappear from the Internet, don't worry about me. I'm probably learning a new recipe, meeting Mr. Darcy or maybe trying to stay alive during the civil war. I'll be back sooner or later. I mean, I have to at least go on-line to see what's new on Amazon.com, don't I?

I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Isn't it great??? I love to just lay back and read.

It has been too long since we visited Terri! I too adore books. Jos and I both feel a living room does not feel right without bookshelves full of glorious books. I dream of one day having an English library in our house. I can see it in my mind's eye. Perhaps if I keep it alive there, it will one day come true. Books are a great way to escape for a short time to new and exciting places and meet new people. I will come search for you at Pemberly if you so disappear. :)

Hugs ~
