"But I hope I will never have a life that is not surrounded by books, by books that are bound in paper and cloth and glue, such perishable things for ideas have lasted thousands of years . . . "
- Rick Bragg
Put down that cell phone, that ipad, that Kindle, girl! Open a book with paper and pages and coffee spills from the reader before you. Take a deep breath and breathe in the smell of library books, the smell you knew well as a child because there was no other kind of book to know...
if you don't know where to start, read one by Rick Bragg...he's one of my favorite southern writers!
