Quote of the Day-----Goodreads
It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (born May 22, 1859) created the observant and skeptical Sherlock Holmes, but later in life Doyle became interested in the supernatural. He had a falling out with Harry Houdini when he refused to believe that the magician's illusions were not real.
Don't know if he would approve of all the books that surround us in our home, however, I believe a home without books is like a body without a soul.
Currently re-reading for the 6th time, "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand" by Helen Simonson. This one stays on my bedside night table all the time, for comfort and joy.
