"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
This week's Corner View is "Books".....I grew up in a household full of books, more books than a bookstore.....I grew up loving books....listening to my parents reading me stories, watching and helping as my mum taught children to read for over 30 years (OK I wasn't there for 30 years)......brought the words to life and the stories to the forefront of their imaginations .....there can be no better gift, teaching someone to read.
Now for the quote above, I truly don't have enough bookshelves in my house. Books are stored under the bed, in a pile next to the bed and anywhere else they can find a home.
