"If the book is second-hand, I leave all its markings intact, the spoor of previous readers, fellow-travellers who have recorded their passage by means of scribbled comments, a name on the fly-leaf, a bus ticket to mark a certain page." -- Alberto Manguel, "The Library at Night"


Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.
- Henry David Thoreau


the smell
the touch
the wonder
the words

ďOld books exert a strange fascination for me -- their smell, their feel, their history; wondering who might have owned them, how they lived, what they felt." - Lauren Wiggen


The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.  ~Andrew Ross

 A book is
a garden,
an orchard,
a storehouse,
a party,
a company by the way,
a counselor,
a multitude of counselors.

|~Henry Ward Beecher

"There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love."
- Christopher Morley


Books are
 immortal sons deifying their
sires.  ~Plato

 I would be most content if  my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists
mostly of building enough bookshelves.  ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves


"Lord! when you sell a man a book you donít sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue -- you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night -- thereís all heaven and earth in a book, a real book."
Christopher Morley, "Parnassus on Wheels"
