I am a long life bibliophile as you may surmise by the photo taken by one of my parents – LOL. One of my fondest adult life memories is sitting in my front room with my visiting parents. We each were reading a book. We had no music, no TV blaring in the background – “only” the imagination stirred in our minds by our books and camaraderie. I plan to use this “parent” page to share book reviews with you. I hope the books are diverse enough for all to find interesting. Please share your favorite books with me. A house without books is not a home.
Our grade school was across the street from our home. All four of us children used the library extensively in the summer – the librarians knew us by name! I would send books to my father, who would then “complain” I kept him up till three o’clock in the morning reading. We were blessed to grow up before cable TV. In fact, I gave up my home TV about 5 years ago – now I spend time with the Internet (grrr), my dogs, my books and prayer.
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges
