Talking of Boooks


Did I hear you say “Again?” I am so passionate about books that I just can’t stop talking of the blessings of reading them. I’ll keep talking about it. See here I share with you today what someone else has to say. She just captured my thoughts. Read it and let me know what you think. You will succeed!

“For some of us, books are important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die. They are full of all the things that you don’t get in real life – wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. And quality of attention: we may notice amazing details during the course of a day but we rarely let ourselves stop and pay attention. An author makes you notice. Makes you pay attention, and this is a great gift. My gratitude for good writing is unbounded.”Anne Lamott (Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life)
