B is for Books


Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

My Taylor loooooves books! Every time we go to the Goodwill she goes right to the book section. Every time I talk about using a book for a craft (as in taking the book apart) she freaks out!

I love books. The kind you can hold in your hands. I don't know if I'll ever get into the Kindle kind...

Amy said...

Ah, I love this! Good job.

Hi Jenny, thanks for your visit. I have not heard of the oil you mentioned but I have been using pure Frankincense oil and that is doing amazing healing. I went to your other blog, what a cute dad there. Thanks for coming to say hi :D

What would we do without them? I love to read.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I had a dog that loved chewing on books...but never ever did he swallow one. :)

☆☆Mumsy said...

I love books too! And love to physically hold books in my hands to read, feel, and smell. I'm too old for this new world :-)

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Books are the most enduring passion of my life....

Great post, teach!

Sue said...

Such a great quote!

=)

PS. I guess your book is to be nibbled slowly, because that's what we have to do every Tuesday....

Nezzy said...

I love books, I love to smell books. Ya ever notice that a Kindle just doesn't 'sniff' the same.

B is for your beautiful heart! Angel loved the Easter Card and growin' bunny friend ya sent her. Her news is not good. She's in the hospital right now. Infection, memory and processing problems, weight loss.... It breaks my heart.

God bless and have a super day sweetie!!!

Keri said...

You would think so with as many of the books in my house that have teethmarks on them! We like to embrace the full experience here, I suppose. :)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Bacon, yum...oh, yeah, not the food. This is a yummy quote though. :-)

Mama Zen said...

And there's a few that you're better off spitting out!

Donnie said...

That's a great quote for Books.

Ames said...

I never met a book I didn't like. Even if it was a really bad read it always made a great fire.~Ames

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I like your quote! It goes along with my view of reading. That one does not HAVE to finish every book started. Some people have to. I think that's a waste of valuable time. One *should* be moving on, to find the next GRRRRRRRREAT book. Instead of slogging through one, which doesn't resonate with one.

My view...

:-)

Judie said...

I could just eat them with a spoon! What would we do without books???

H said...

I love books :)

Catherine Love said...

Since childhood, books have been such a part of my life. Now with rising costs of quilt fabric and going to the bookstore, often a decision has to made...so difficult!
Thank goodness for the library and having a circle of friends who we can share books with!

Oh, geeze. I really, REALLY gots to get me some new glasses. I totally misread the title of this post.

Until that time, I won't be reading about that guy's tale (who wants to be called a snail) about some crazy Captain named Anab chasing after Macy's enormous white duck.

Heh, heh.
