Happy Book Lovers Day!
I nearly let this day slip by without an acknowledgment of an important day - National Book Lovers Day!
I grew up with books. I can not remember a time that either my parents weren't reading to me, or I was reading myself. Our home had an entire wall of bookshelves in our den, and other shelves devoted to books scattered through our small house. And on any given evening, you could find my mom in her chair reading, my dad in his chair reading, and me sprawled out on the couch reading. It was grand!
I love books, and yes, I'm probably a book hoarder - but I can't help it! It's genetic! You should see the bookshelves in my sons' homes! :)
So Happy Book Lovers Day, my friends! May we have many happy reading days ahead of us!
