B is for Books

It is Day 2 of the 2013 A-Z Writing Challenge. And today I feel like sharing quotations about, what else?--Books.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed scrounging for them and sharing them. I hope they encourage and inspire you to pick up a pen and scribble a Book of your own.

See you in print,

Linda Della Donna

I love books. Reading them, at least. I have not ever tried writing one, although I have contemplated it a time or ten. :)

Happy "B" Day!

See, that's what my digital library looks like. So may pretties... When I'm a billionaire writer, I'm going to have a room with 20 foot ceilings and books from floor to roof. (Like in Beauty and the Beast.) That's right. See, there's a dream worth striving for, right?
