Quote of the Day

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Quote of the Day

“It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought—that is to be educated. ”
― Edith Hamilton

NO private library is complete WITHOUT books on mythology, especially Edith Hamilton’s book Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes! If you do not have it, get one!

P.S. – The Golden Bough is another must have, especially for books such as Heart of Darkness. In the movie Apocalypse Now! (based off the book) they made a point by having a copy of it in the movie!
