How could I have missed that yesterday (March 2, 2017) was World Book Day? Did I even know there was such a thing as World Book Day? I don't think I did, but happily Oliver Jeffers rectified the situation with this lovely little video on Instagram.
Not being one to let a little thing like being a day late stop me, I pulled down a selection of favorites from my bookshelves this morning.
Books that started me on the path of loving books, books that have shaped my guiding principles, books that have taught me lessons.
One of, if not THE, favorite of all the books I have read. To date.
And all these books that continue to inspire, guide, transform, and of course entertain me.
Franz Kafka said it best, "books are the axe for the frozen sea within us". Happy belated World Book Day. Go forth and read.
