    So hard to leave books! I am giving away so many right now. And after I read each one, I share it, both physically and/or electronically, with a friend. Books are so dear!

    Do not mourn your books:
    they always exist somewhere
    when not on your shelf.

    Especially in this digital age. Many are now in the clouds.

    Although at that stage it was toys – it's much more difficult to get rid of books!

    Poignat. One day books may be our only link to information….until people forget how to read.
