Monday Morning Thoughts
While cleaning out some drawers this weekend, I found this quote that I had saved. (I don't know who wrote it so I can't give them credit, but I do know it wasn't me)
People who read books are different from other people. They're smarter for one thing. They're more sensual for another. They like to hold, touch and smell what they read.
I must have saved it because it describes me. (That was a joke)
Yesterday, the Handyman and I took a quick trip to Reno, where, among other things we went to Barnes and Noble, where I picked up this book:
It was just a random grab as I was walking by the shelves. Some of my best reads have been random grabs.
But anyway, this is a book of essays, by writers, telling about their favorite places to browse, read and shop. (a bit ironic that they are talking mostly about independent bookstores and I purchased it at a big chain. Shame on me.)
I read the first essay on the way home (I wasn't driving--don't worry) and I cried. Not like big sobs, but I got teary eyed about the love we can have for bookstores.
Truly, people who aren't bookworms- book nerds, cannot understand that feeling. The Handyman doesn't---he just laughs and shakes his head. He likes to read a book, but he doesn't --well, he just isn't---a bookworm, like me.
I can't wait to read the rest of the essays!
Do you have a favorite bookstore? Where you liked to browse, read and shop?
