I strained real hard to see what the title of that book was, lol! 😉 It’s so true about book, they’re my friend and help me in so many ways. ❤
I didn't think you would mind. 🙂 What an amazing book Paulette.
What a fabulous thing it is to read and learn. We never have to stop learning! In addition books are great therapy and escape! Have a beautiful day Chatter!<3
Thank you Heart! 🙂 If we ever stop learning…what would be the point? Happy day to you!!! ❤
Not only that, but it keeps us fresh and alive…so as long as our cognition is active (reading helps to prolong this) read on!! Enjoy!
I’m all for healthy cognition. I see too much to not appreciate and do what I can to stay brain healthy.
Same here, we have to fight the aging process of our brain.
I’m all for a good and well needed fight!
Beautifully said Colleen.
Thank you Paul 🙂
I feel sorry for anyone who cannot read. In this day and age, you ask? Yes, indeed.
Well put, Colleen. R.e.a.d.i.n.g. is golden. ❤ ❤ ❤
I know Tess, it is sad to think about. Years ago I became a tutor for a literacy council. Sadly, no adults ever used the program. I know the benefits of reading….and I know there are those who want that.
Yes, and are hungry for it… ❤ ❤
This is so true! 🙂
🙂 It is good stuff-reading. 🙂
Absent having a real (physically, tangentially) experience, I love imaging and envisioning experiences through reading! And I like to turn pages; not simply ‘swipe.’ 😊
There is nothing like turning a page Eric. Nothing. 🙂
You had me at ‘read books’
😀 We are completed Marissa.
THank you Russ. 🙂
I love that you say it.. for I cannot live without books, Colleen. So much so that I carry around a journal which says I cannot live without books and people often sort of nod to me saying.. uh hmmm, yes, yes, I can’t either, which gets us talking. A world without the written word simply does not exist for me.
Nor for me MM.
I need to read it. Write it. And like you….I love to actually hold books. There’s something about being able to carry entire worlds, experiences, ideas…in your hand.
Yes exactly Colleen. It is the tangibility of the worlds and words we hold that makes me want to breathe and read those books.
books give us life –
I love this drawing so much!
Thank you Lynn! 🙂
I adore your drawings!
Life is so very precious. Live each day to the fullest!
Oh YES! I have such a love for books and reading, and my life is definitely enhanced because of that love! Your drawing is just wonderful!
Thank you Debra! 🙂 Enhanced is a great way to describe what reading does for us. 🙂
I am getting back into reading and have my 2-3 books going on at the same time. Depending what mood I am in – determines which book I read!! 🙂 What can I say my mind is always going off in different directions. 🙂
I hear that Patty. I used to dictate to myself that I could not start a different book while I was reading one. Silly me. That has now changed! 🙂
Geesh, I don’t think I could say anything more than what has been said. You are an inspiration!
Aw April. Thank you! ❤
Books are doorways, portals, trains, and so many other modes of transportation to other lands and worlds. When life is sad or seems to lack hope for some people, I will wish they have a pile of books for nourishing their soul, Colleen.
Aren’t they though Robin? I like the pile of books idea Robin 🙂
