The library. Any place that is filled with books is on the top of my list of most magical places on earth. I love walking into a room lined with overstuffed bookshelves, the smell of dusty old books, and the sound of mothers whispering "shhhhh" to their children who are excited to pick out their next great adventure sitting on a nearby shelf. In a room full of books the opportunities are endless, and nothing soothes my stressful mind like delving into a good fantasy, taking a trip through time in a historical fiction, or being immersed into the hopes and fears of someone's life story.
Today I picked out two books I can't wait to get lost in.
And as much as I would love to continue sharing my love of books with you, I'm afraid I have a lovely chair by an open window eagerly awaiting my company. This manic Monday has now given me time to relax with a few good books.
