“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”Charles W. Elliot
Books and stories have been an important part of my life. Through their pages, I’ve traveled to exotic places, met people from places and cultures I could never visit, explored the meaning of life, and have been inspired by those who have walked before me. Because of their importance, I’ve always surrounded myself with books.
I recently asked if anyone was interested in a tour of my bookshelves. The answer was a resounding, “yes”. I hadn’t thought about the amount of books I have or what that would look like. I don’t think a quick look at the spines of books on my shelf, reading off only a few titles really does justice to the books I have. I’m pretty picky about what goes and stays on my shelf. Each of these books has “earned” its spot.
I decided I would begin a bookshelf tour series, where I can walk you through the books on my shelf and why they’re there. Pull up a comfy chair and enjoy browsing these books with me.
