A Slight Obsession

"No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting."
~Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

There are few things that I love more than a good book...second only to my obsession with beautiful ways to display them.  I have them in every bag, vehicle and room in my home.  They are loaded on my ipad and my nook. I am never more than an arms length away from a dose of  self help, romance or history.  My husband is slightly annoyed at the massive amount of money that is spent in bookstores, but I continue to remind him that it is far better to feed the mind than anything else.
I read to my children before they were born...days were spent at bookstores when they were little to pass the time and I am most proud of their love of reading and hope I had a little hand in that.  I leave home to pick them up from school extra early.  I can park in my favorite tree shaded spot on campus to get a few minutes of reading in before the circus ensues and I am forced to read (and re-read) math word problems, photosynthesis notes and my daughters essay on the need for fresh water initiatives. (which was fantastic, by the way)!
I would love to hear from you...what is your favorite book?  What are you reading now?
Have a wonderful day!
live well....


  1. Beautiful!
    I just love a space full of books.

  2. I just wanted to tell you that I love the inspiration from your blog. The photos you find are wonderful! As for the reading...I am currently in the middle of "Gone Girl" and it's got me hooked. I need to carve out some time so I can finish it!
