Quote of the Day

READING is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

READING is to the mind what exercise is to the body.  As by the one, health is preserved, strengthened and invigorated; by the other, virtue (which is the health of the mind) is kept alive, cherished and confirmed ~ Addison.

January 25th is LIBRARY SHELFIE DAY! My camera battery is dead, otherwise I would have posted a picture of my personal library shelves. I love to read, have always loved books, going to the library, and owning books. Sadly, when I sold my house a few years back, I downsized in space and had to limit the books that I kept. Most of my fiction reading is done now on a kindle fire, which I love, but I still adore books!
