With the possible exception of a few textbooks we found useful but not enjoyable, we agree with Oscar on this point. So let’s clear our shelves of all those books that we’ll never crack open again, to make room for keepers that will give pleasure every time we read them.
That’s the book we should read, read, and re-read — don’t you think?
What sort of garden to you carry in yours?
We’ve heard it suggested that parents should limit their children to four Christmas gifts: “something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.” Does that mean that if you buy a book-loving child a book he wants but doesn’t already own, then you can mark three of these off your list at once?
We think books are a great gift choice, not only because they can be enjoyed time and again, but because they can be shared with others to spread the joy.
