“I am simply a ‘book drunkard.’ Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” — L.M. Montgomery

    I like books that way. I read like a drunk – seriously, I thought that this morning! I just can not resist reading a bit more and a bit more. How strange . . . and here is your post. Are you reading my mind (daily)??

    I too am a book fiend…..someone brought me a Kindle, but nothing beats the look, feel, smell of a real live book. Even though I have hundreds in my book cases at home, I still can,t resist buying another one if I pass a second hand bookstore!

      A book is a beautiful thing. I like the thought (when I look at a book) that everything is in there.. . the story, the other world and the authors ideas. It is all just sitting there every day inside the book – just like magic!

      1. Very well said. That’s why I love maps in books. It makes the world all the more real to me.

        I like maps in books too (what a surprise)! I am reading the book “Waterland” by Graham Swift. It is set in the Fens in England . Very good but I wish it had a map!

        PS Liking maps is also very old fashioned! I love them!

      3. We are much alike. I even used to love the maps of natural resources in grade school textbooks with all the little symbols.

        I’m reading a great book written by a woman in the 1950’s about women’s magazines and the horrible role she thought they played in ruining women. It’s a funny book (I don’t think it’s always meant to be though).

    2. Books make a home cozy. The more the better. It’s like family photos strewn all about.
