a poetical response following close observation: pebbles for rivers of stones
So true - and yet it always amazes me that in some houses there is not a book in sight.
My mother would have had them all hidden - said they made the place look untidy - but my Dad was a librarian so she didn't stand an earthly!
Come on - play fair. I want close-ups so I can read the titles! :)
Note that I was careful to omit the Jilly Coopers :) - but to be honest the sun DOES bleach the spines ...
