FridayReads book of the Day

My #Fridayreads book for today: "Home: A Memoir of My Early Years" by Julie Andrews

I always loved her voice, she's an interesting lady to read about as well. Recommended.

Happy Reading, Bibliophiles!

For the Love of Books

“What is a great love of books? It is something like a personal introduction to the great and good men of all past times. Books, it is true, are silent as you see them on their shelves; but, silent as they are, when I enter a library I feel as if almost the dead were present, and I know if I put questions to these books they will answer me with all the faithfulness and fulness which has been left in them by the great men who have left the books with us.” ― John Bright
