Some Books That Live on My Shelves...

You'll find a list called "Some Books That Live on My Shelves" in my left-hand column. A few of these I've actually read, but most of them are gems and treasures I look forward to enjoying over the coming years, Lord willing. I've collected most of them in just the past year via library book sales, eBay and Paperback Swap.

There's an interesting quote on hopeinbrazil's blog which goes something like this:
"A life being short, and the quiet hours of it few, we ought to waste none of them in reading valueless books." John Ruskin

I find the quiet hours are few, so my shelf full of books should last me a good long time. And that's something to look forward to!
