“A house without books is a home with no soul”
I just read that here, a blog that I read from time to time, and it got me thinking.
I have friends that don’t read and of course do not have any books around, their children don’t read either, in fact one house in particular doesn’t have books, or anything crafty, no baking………nothing, it is a very sad house.
All my kids read, and I read so we are never bored. I wonder what it would be like not to have a story speak to you, wrap its words around you, comfort you, take you on a journey, make you laugh, make you cry.
I have two book cases that stand at around 6ft tall and 3ft wide, full of books and bits and bobs and boxes out in the garage full of books too.
I love my books.
Am reading a book at the moment called ‘The Joy Luck Club’ which makes me think of Japan, so I send love to them, their animals and to Mother Earth for she must be in great turmoil.
