Day 222, August 8

"A home without books is a body without soul."--Cicero

We're back to one of my favorite topics--books.  As I look around me at this moment, I am surrounded by books, books, and more books.  No, I'm not in the family room with its four ceiling-to-floor built-in bookcases.  I'm at my kitchen table.  There are romances, suspenses, church histories, and a devotional.   (I can't possibly read only one book at a time!  Where's the sense in that?)

Books feed me.  They feed my soul.  They feed my mind.  They feed my heart.  They are as necessary as food, water, and air to my well-being.  Without them, I am lost.  Literally.

So, for today, I am grateful for books.


  1. I agree with you and with Thomas Jefferson, who said "I cannot live without books." Truly, I cannot imagine a world without books. It would be a much poorer place.

  2. I'm glad you have lots of books.
