The first time I walked into this used bookstore I was breathless as I glazed upon all the books. The books reached up to the ceiling with a maze of shelves. I had difficulties looking in any direction, since my eyes wanted to capture every detail and book. In this photo, the many ‘details’ are each book. I need all the books or ‘details’ to truly experience this location.

- Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details (dailypost.wordpress.com)
I’m very late for this week’s photo challenge. I was excited to learn how to insert a photo gallery into a post. These are a few things that make me happy. I enjoy beautiful flowers, sweet desserts, wonderful books, and my dog & family.
Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.
― Virginia Woolf
Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.
― Stephen King
In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.
― Mark Twain
I just finished a book, A Dog’s Journey, which means I’m hunting for my next book to read. Honestly, I don’t feel like hunting for a book. Even though I’m always looking for my next favorite book. There are certain books I fell in love with, such as Little Women and the Harry Potter series. I think I’ve read each three times. Is there a rule that a new book must always be read? Why are people puzzled that someone can read a book they’ve already read? I often gain fresh experiences and fall in love with the book all over again when I reread a book. In the past, I’ve often rushed through books to see how many I can read. I’m a fan of the online, Goodreads, that allows you to keep track of books, read reviews, participate in online book clubs, and maintain a reading goal. Should reread books be put into my goal? So before you ask someone, ‘How can you read that book again?’ think to yourself that there must be a reason why this person is reading it again. Also, the individual is reading which truly is all that matters.
