The Paradox of Reading - Joan Lennon

Isn't it amazing that anything so outwardly solitary can be so densely populated, anything that we do so quietly can resound with so many voices, anything that we do in such stillness can fling us quite so far?

Here's to reading, then, as the year turns towards spring and blessings get counted. First page of the list, for sure, and not far from the top.

What gorgeous pictures and what a lovely sentiment, Joan. I have a pile of 8 Christmas books to fill my hours... here's to reading.

I quite agree. I really don't think life would be worth reading if one had no way of reading whatsoever....I suppose I include LISTENING at a pinch and if all else failed but it wouldn't be the same at all. Very near the top of any list of blessings.

I meant, of course: LIFE WOULD BE WORTH LIVING....doh!

Definitely a blessing!
Although Adele, audio books are also amazingly good!
