Honestly. Is there anything better than books? Anything at all? (No, no there isn’t.)

If I could I’d read for most of the day and spend the rest of my time at libraries and bookstores.

Imagine walking into a place of books (heaven) and there on a shelf you see it. Maybe it’s the colour, the title, the author’s name, maybe it’s all three or none of them… but you reach out and pick the book up.

The weight of it, the feel of rippling through its pages, the smell of a new book (or if you’re in a second hand shop or a library, the smell of an old book). All those (by you) unread words. All the adventure waiting for you inside the pages of this wonderful thing.

Today I spent almost one hour in the library, reading a book I’ve already read serval times. It was the best.

I also have Kindle and read so many books on my phone and laptop, but to me there’s nothing better than getting to hold a book in my hands and experience the magic of reading.

Anyhow, we need more bookshelves at home, there’s not enough room to keep them all… and I know I’ll soon bring home new ones. I always do.
