The Book Kiss



Have you ever noticed if you say the word BOOK slowly,its like a kiss? Go ahead try it. I LOVE books. Paperback,hardcover,new,used or garage sale find. A world you can hold in your hand. A world someone else was so enamored of they wanted to write it down for you. They worried about just the right word or turn of phrase. They wanted you to see in that world what they did. Pick up a book. Kiss this world away for a bit and discover another place to be,in the pages of a book.

  5. Kim~ I'm a book fanatic, too. I love finding unique, old/used bookstores to wander in. Though lately, I admit... I spend more time reading blogs than books! :)
