I have been the recipient of a few books lately. I have forgotten how much I love books. Despite the fact that I can not afford an ipad or kindle or any of those fancy electronic readers, I don't think I could ever leave my books. I love the look, texture, smell and feel of them in my hands as I pour myself into them.
One day I will have a library with floor to ceiling shelves of all my books. BIG books, little books, children's books, silly books, art books, cook books, cheesy books, spy books and science fiction books. I love me some books.
The peanut loves books too. and curiously, lately she has preferred books without pictures. An interesting choice for someone who cannot read yet. But she is learning! I am amazed at her desire to learn and willingness to expand that beautiful brain of hers.
In that wonderful parcel we just received, she has claimed I Love Dirt. Here she is with her most recent prized possession. I hope when she does learn to read, she will love the written word as much as her mother. And the ability and desire to be seduced into a dragon's lair or in a strange and foreign culture. With such a beautiful imagination, I can only hope for as much. And after all, she is her mother's daughter...
I on the other hand am learning some mad ninja skilz ... can't tell you anything else - or will have to kill you!
Thank you to our anonymous literary friend (although I think I have you figured out). Kindness is often measured by one's actions and the amount of strings attached. I have had my fair share of stringy webs lately, it is a pleasure to enjoy these books string-free :)
What are you reading these days?
