My Favourite Things

Favourite Quotes:

"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse, and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. "~ Ernest Hemingway

"A great book should leave you with many experiences and slightly exhausted at the end.You should live several lives while reading it."~ William Styron

"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. " ~ Anna Quindlen

"Reading makes immigrants of us all.It takes us away from home, but more important,it finds homes for us everywhere."~ Hazel Rochman

"Book lovers will understand me,and they will know too that part of the pleasure of a library lies in its very existence."~ Jan Morris
