My appetite for the written word is insatiable. That passion is evidenced by my vast library, with hard cover books from the 19th and 20th centuries on every conceivable subject.
"A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought
without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea
without fear it will go off in your face..."
~Edward P. Morgan
"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people
who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves."
“To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage
which gives a view over wide terrains of history,
human variety, ideas, shared experience
and the fruits of many inquiries.”
~A C Grayling
