A good read

Books, books and more books! I know I should pass them on to charity shops when I've read them but when I've enjoyed one it feels like a little friend. I've used every nook and cranny to accommodate them in my tiny cottage but I'm running out of space ...

A house without books is like a room without windows.
~Heinrich Mann

Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.  
~Henry Ward Beecher

My garden retreat. A place to read and write (and store books maybe...) 

Oh to have more space! Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a reading room devoted to books?
I love these.
