Oh For A Book And A Shady Nook . . .


O for a Booke and a shdie nooke, eyther in-a-doore or out; With the grene leaves whisp'ring overhede, or the Streete cryes all about. Where I maie Reade all at my ease, both of the Newe and Olde; For a jollie goode Booke whereon to looke is better to me than Golde.

John Wilson
1785-1854

We were just looking at the BBC Oscar top 100 must read book list. How fun would it be to wad through classics like you are doing and discuss them...SO cool!

THAT sounds like a list I could follow! Have you seen the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You DIe list? It's a little . . . er, intimidating.
