Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?–Henry Ward Beecher
I am without doubt a confirmed bibliophile, a disease that apparently even Henry Ward Beecher had, as well as many of America’s wealthy homeowners, as witnessed by some of their great libraries.
So, When I read this quote I said, “Oh, that is soooo me.”
As I kid going into the library, I could never choose just one library book. Three was the minimum, and I’ve been known to go as high as seven, or ten, if I was checking out non-fiction for research or skimming. I always returned before the two-week borrowing limit was over and checked out another armload of books. Of course, back then I had the luxury of time on my side. I don’t read books as fast as I did as a teen, but I still collect them. I haven’t lost my love of books, or my weakness for the written word . . .click HERE To read more of this blog, which is posted at SMP Author site where I’m guest blogging today.
