“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”

You’ll get no argument from me, Cicero!
Charles always finds the good quotes. Nice reblog, Jennie.
Best wishes, Pete.
He does, Pete!
Always had a couple of books in my tool bag. As much as I love real books I found my Ereader is a good way to build a good collection at a price I can afford and I never run out of books to read.
All completely true. Especially Charles’s
Gigantic Hugs. x
““A room without books is like a body without a soul.” I couldn’t agree more! I also always have a book on me for any idle moments in life – although there’s the odd time that I will find myself in these moments and think, “Ughhh, why did I forgot my book!??!”
I do the same thing! Waiting for an appointment I could be reading a few pages. Sheesh!
Jennie, thank you so much!
I totally agree. I can’t leave my house without a book.
I love the Borges quote, Jennie. A great share. Heading over to Charles’ place.
I felt the same way!

I cannot imagine a room (or home) without books -ever.
All great quotes! I used to carry a book of poetry with me, but I have not done that in a long time. I should remedy that! 😀
I wish I always remembered to have a book handy. Poetry can be a wonderful read in the moment.
I almost always carry a book with me – even from room to room in my house!
Thanks for sharing Jennie! Sorry i had another delay. Have a beautiful week. xx Michael
Thanks Michael, and no worries!
