"hold a book in your hand and you're a pilgrim at the gates of a new city."
my love affair with books began at an early age. i grew up surrounded by them. my mom was a collector and at the old homestead i recall how our bookshelf was filled with her romance and sci-fi books. when i couldn't read yet, i used to stare at those tomes and wondered what the rectangular shaped things were for. little did i know that once i learned what their function was and what they could offer, i was going to be hooked for life.
this blog is about books - my life-long romance with them and my journey of discovery and learning. it is also a tribute to all their authors and to all the books yet to be read and written.
take a joy ride with me then and i hope to make the trip worth your while.
