  1. Totally true!! We had to reinforce the sub-floors of our bookcases due to the weight of all the heavy books.....I still worry! Speaking of books, I am loving my Simon Pearce book. Thank you, friend :-)

  3. Books tell you so much about the people living in the home too. I love the tufted chair in this picture. x Sharon

  5. I agree with Cicero. Who knew??? I have books in virtually every room in my home; some of them I have had for more than 50 years. I don't like to part with old friends.

  7. We sell alot of antique books at my shop and I truly love them! Of course they are all over my bookcases at home and I have a lot that belonged to my great grandmother that I treasure! Loved this!

  8. Amen. I could not live without my books. Well, maybe I could live, but I could not flourish. My husband always warned that our house would tip in one direction, but as a former English teacher, I applaud your sentiments. Thanks for reiterating my sentiments exactly.

  9. I couldn't have put it better myself - I have books spilling out from everywhere in my house, and there is absolutely NO room for any more...and yet they just keep on coming - perhaps they breed in captivity!!

  14. Wonderful words! I found my love of books when I was 6 years old & I have had my nose permanently stuck in them ever since.
