  1. Hopefully, there will always be wonderful new books for us to cherish. I worry sometime that there will only be electronic libraries. The Gap and I are cleaning out books, we better run them by Topsy first. I must admit that it is sometimes easier to hold onto a light electronic book than a heavy hard bound book…..but there are my favorites, the paperback and the ease of folding the corners down. Talk about books makes me think about how much I would love to spend the winter with a pile of books in a compy chair in the main lobby at the Old Faithful Inn. By the way library science should be a good profession for a girl with a topknot, glasses, bright red lips and winged eyeliner.

    • Thank you so much! Gammie! YES RUN ALL BOOK GIVEAWAYS BY ME! I love the paper backs aw well… 🙂
