“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.
~ Francis Bacon ~

i have been waiting for you to find your groove with books, to choose books you love and really get into them. today my wish came true: what did you do to calm yourself after an ankle injury on the trampoline? you found a pile of *asterix* books and snuggled up for a good snortle.

J11, you are totally the bookaholic. you read a page twice as fast as i do, and you have a photographic memory like D17's: you can find a snippet of info/quote in an instant. if ever we are looking for you, chances are you'll be sitting in the sunshine doing just this, and the whole world opens wide its windows as you explore it, breathe it, live it.

I'm a bookaholic too! Or at least, I used to be. Have a hard time finding *good stuff* to read anymore.
