The Beauty of Books

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!”

                                                     --Jane Austen


Pages and pages I’ve loved through my life…


…time spent remembering and re-visiting favorite books and authors, characters and places…


It’s a hard thing, to distill into two smallish journaling pages the dearest books read—and some re-read—throughout my life…


…what wonders await me on pages yet unread???


Well, I’m off on another adventure—a week in the redwoods with my daughters…and about 150 other women and girls!  Leaving my poor husband at home to enjoy all the comforts alone…

I’ll be back next week—hundreds of mosquito bites the richer, I’m quite sure!  Wonder if I’ll have any time to read while I’m away…..?

“…but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”

--Jane Austen
