Standard

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” Cicero

I am a lover of books. I read them, study them, teach them, own them, and now write them. Books are a central part of my life, and I own more books than most people do, and I am delighted that I have them.  But, I am not  a collector–these are for reading and for use. I do not care about first editions or the monetary value of books.  I care about them as objects to be held, felt, and read.

And I feel most at home in any room if it has books. They do not have to be organized, but they should be there.

And yes, I will always prefer the physical copy of a book over an ebook. That is a post for another day!

My nominees for today because I interpret the rules as meaning nominate 3 new bloggers each day of the challenge:

Yinglan https://yzhengblog.wordpress.com

M. C. Tuggle http://mctuggle.com/

Kas https://afellowzebra.wordpress.com/

The Rules:

1.) Once a day for the next three days, choose a quotation, and write a little about it.

2.) Thank the person who nominated you, and link back to their site.

3.) Nominate 3 other bloggers for the challenge, and let them know about it.

And thank you to Zanthee https://tasmatron.wordpress.com , who nominated me and who writes an excellent blog.  Please take the time to check out her blog, and thank you so much for the nomination, Zanthee!
