The Reader

So I was browsing this adorable blog reverie-daydream and came across this.
I love it. The painting, the Quote. It truly is so beautiful.
" Books are the quietest and most constant of friends;
they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors,
and the most patient of teachers. "
 
~ Charles W. Eliot

Beautiful. I read somewhere that these online book readers are going to eliminate hard bounds someday. What a sad day that will be . . . I surely hope not! Lets keep the dream alive! xo Samantha

I have that painting.. obviously not the original, but a print in a frame.. massive, that I picked up from a book-fair for about $5.
