I have always imagined that Heaven would be some kind of Library.

  1. "He who has a garden and a library wants for nothing." I wish Cicero had been wiser about pronoun usage, but I agree with the sentiment. Or Louisa May Alcott's, "She is too fond of books and it has addled her brain."

    Love your book filled home. By the way do you have Roger Banks-Pye's book "Interior Inspirations" or perhaps his "Inspirational Interiors?" Well they are the same book!!! I have both!!! Didn't realize when I ordered the second one is one the same book, reversed title and different cover. Making it hard on us folks with more books than organization. Would love to share one with you if this is missing in your collection. Kind of a tribute to our 84 Charing Cross Road moments.(If you have it and would like to have one for a give away, that's fine with me too) I do feel we are kindred spirits. It must be this North Carolina-Kansas great exchange we seem to be a part of!

  5. Home, I am honored with your comments. I recently posed to a fellow blogger (who faded to black) is it the comments we need to keep it all going. For me one comment like yours makes my day. Day Made. I would be honored to get the book! I didnt see if on my shelf- but that "don't" mean a thing... I have a few books on loan( it is hard to see them part) and I have actually replaced some left- only to have them returned year(s) later. Your book will be cherished. I have a Summer Reading Series coming up with all sorts of info- and bloggers book picks and friends too. Hope it will be good. Interesting LMA's quote- I will have to use it- and she will appear in my book picks! Get in touch through my email address and I will send you my address. Gaye

  6. Libraries are heaven on earth. I'm so delighted to see your collection - beautiful. I've been collecting since I was a little girl, and it's unstoppable. On a recent trip I toured antique shops for three days and only bought... books. And some prints. That were old book pages. It's a hopeless business, but I'm not looking for a cure!
