Once again, I went on an unintentional hiatus, but I am going to focus and get back on track-again!
As promised (more than a week ago), here are a couple of quotations about books and reading from the Bas Bleu literary catalog and website!
"Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier." -Kathleen Norris (love her!)
"No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting." -Mary Wortley Montagu
"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
I have just requested a catalog and it should be arrive within two weeks. I am so so delighted with the entire concept of this catalog and website. Their tag-line is: "Champion of the odd little book...and your source for inspired gifts and accessories for readers." How lovely is that? I adore odd little books! And as I said before, "Bas Bleu" means blue-stocking in French, which is a literary woman.
I like to consider myself a "literary woman", but then I also think that there is much I could do to move myself more in that direction. Can I consider myself to be well-read? Do you consider yourself to be well-read? What is the criteria?
