    A Book

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!
    ~Emily Dickinson

We like books around here.

You might even say we have a few.

A few in the library.

A few in Paulie and Philip's room.

A few in Elizabeth's room.

A few in our room.

We read them too.

Especially at night.


  1. Um like books! lol

    Your home looks like our home with the bunches of books. ;)

  2. Those last two pictures are very cute!

  3. You are giving me book shelf space envy in a big way! That last picture is just precious by the way, and thank you for sharing that poem!

  4. I have more books than I know what to do with. I keep saying I'll go to a library but there is something about keeping the book forever that I just can't get over. I have some stored in my 1 BR apt and some stored in my sisters (because I ran out of space). I hope to one day have a library like yours with wall to wall literature.

    And of course - your kids = so cute!

  5. Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.

    I love you even more.

    And I *love* the last two pictures.

  6. i love the asleep-with-books-on-face photos! we love books too. i am always trying to find more book space. that's what you get for being the daughter of a librarian!

  7. Awww...what a sweet post. :) You've got an impressive book collection. Your home looks like a perfect place to enjoy a good book.

  8. Books, books, bring on the books!!!! Fauna read Judy Moody and LOVED the whole series.


  9. One can never have to many books ;)
    Love your bookshelfs!

  10. i love to see walls lined with books!
    your little ones are too cute : )

  11. Oh, how we love books too....When we moved to our current home, I somehow (I'm ashamed to say it) misplaced (or I dare say) sold some of my books. We just had SO MANY. So, good excuse to order more!

  12. WOW! And here I thought I had a lot of books. You definitely win.
    We love books in this house too.


I love to hear what you think!
