Arnold Lobel on piles of books

This rings a bell…

1001 Children's Books

“Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them.” 

– Arnold Lobel

    1. True! Are you like me in thinking “Where are the bookshelves?” when visiting a house for the first time? By your books shall ye be judged… Oh dear, that sounds a bit harsh!

    1. Strange too how online writing (social networking or, perhaps, ‘caught in a trap of one’s own making’) interferes even more than simple creative endeavours like properly putting metaphorical pen to paper!
