Love that quote!PatCritter Alley
Hi Pat! Thanks...I do, too! :)
The quote is just right for me! Seems I am in "another world" with books these days!
We readers (and writers) sure know how to get lost in words and stories, don't we?! :)
Hi Becky! Was happy to see your post. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Hotter than blue blazes here. Susan
Hi Susan! Thank you! I'm happy to post at least a little something! I'm doing better...still fighting a sinus infection, but much better. It's very hot and humid here. Typical St. Louis summertime weather!
Oh I like that - how are you doing these days?
Hi Sandie! Thanks! And for your answer.....see my reply to Susan...above! :)
Now, isn't that the truth! I have escaped into a great book this past weekend, "Memoirs of a Geisha" ... an awesome book. My Mom found it sad, but so far I have enjoyed all of the history and find the heroine to be super strong and honest. Hugs, Becky!Kathy M.
Hi Kathy! I've heard lots about that book, but never read it...yet! Glad you're enjoying it. Hugs back to you! :)
Awww. Ain't that the truth?! I hope you're settling in okay, and doing well at your new digs.
Hi Susan! That's exactly what I said, out loud, when I saw and read this! "Awwww.....!" Yes, getting settled in...mostly just working on getting all my tons of papers finding a place to be filed!
Perfect for today. My daughter was complaining about being bored and I told her to go read a book. "You can spend hours off and away and never leave your room." She wasn't convinced, but it always worked for me. Still does!Love the pic of you and Vern!
Thanks, Lisa! And that's always been so true for me, too! My husband is not a reader....Can you imagine??!!...And he's always amazed when I'm so engrossed in a book that I don't hear or see anything going on around me! I am so happy and grateful that I LOVE TO READ!!
HiYa, BECKY ~It was the Summer between 5th and 6th grades when I turned into a reader. My Ma had given me the three books from a boys adventure series that she still had from her own childhood: SECKATARY HAWKINS, published by Robert F. Schulkers in Cincinnati in the mid-1920s. (I'll bet none of your other Followers have ever heard of that series.) My favorite was titled 'THE YELLOW Y', which I eventually reread countless times.Seeing how engrossed I became in the Seckatary Hawkins books, my parents got me some Hardy Boys books and I was totally hooked on reading from those days to these. (Although, now, I read almost exclusively nonfiction.)Very recently, my Brother mentioned remembering those long ago Summer days when I would literally spend THE ENTIRE DAY in my bedroom reading Hardy Boys books. For awhile there, I spent so much time indoors, just reading, that I lost the break on my curveball.~ D-FensDogg'Loyal American Underground'
Oh my goodness! I'm really behind in my replies...again! And YOU, Mr. Stephen T.....always leave fabulous comments!! I, too, spent many hours reading when I was a kid. I'm so grateful my parents and older sisters read to my brother and me. As we got older, we sometimes received books as gifts and I always loved that! As you devoured Hardy Boys books, I sped read Nancy Drew! Great memories!
Love it! I still love to escape inside a good book...
Hi Betty! Thank you! I do still love to read, too. Did you happen to read what I wrote about Rita Moreno's memoir? It wasn't a review, just how much I liked it!
Adorable and true.
Hi EC! Yep, I definitely agree with you!!
Love this. And you're right - it needs no other words. Thanks for your kind words on my blog yesterday Becky. Nice to know i have a true friend.
Hi Myrna, you're such a sweetie! Everyone who happens to be reading these comments and replies....please hop over to Myrna's blog. She writes AMAZING poetry and just needs more nudges to submit them somewhere! :)

SO true! And books have saved many a gloomy day for me. :-)
Hey Ms. Cathy C --- great to see you here...and the same is true for me.
Oh my. This is very high on the cute scale! :)
Hi Julie! Thanks for stopping by! I certainly agree with you. Every single time I look at it, I smile like crazy!!
I am an arm chair traveler these days. I love this picture. it is perfect, Becky, and made me smile.XO,Sheila
Hey Ms Magpie! This is so funny!! ----- I just hit the "Publish" button on my reply to Julie, and your comment appeared simultaneously! ---- I said it makes me smile...and you said the same! :) Great minds think alike! I'll be by your blog in just a moment.
How sweet. I can't imagine a world without books.
Hi Donna! Thanks, and I agree! That would be devastating!
Can't think of a better way to while away the hours!
Hi Debora! I'm with you on that! :)
If that's the case, I've traveled the world this summer.http://joycelansky.blogspot.com
Hi Joyce! Thanks for stopping by! I haven't seen your lovely face for a long time! I'll be sure and stop by your blog, too! And yes....we readers have traveled far and wide!
That is an awesome quote! I've gotten to travel back in time to the 1940's and 1950's these past few months!
Hi Patti! Thanks! Me, too! I just finished reading Rita Moreno's memoir and it was REALLY good. I hated for it to end.
I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
I'm changing the look of my blog and not quite sure if I like what I've done so far.... Thus, the sign about my remodeling! (...
