All right, there is no such thing as Bookaholics Anonymous, at least as far as I know. And if there was, I guess I likely wouldn't be a member of it, since I can't seem to get away from my enjoyment of books. :) There is something about each book that is different - the color, size, shape, thickness of the pages, scent, and of course topics. I find myself quite taken with books. Ask anyone who has been to my home, and they will attest to the number of bookcases we have overloaded with books.
Perhaps this topic comes to mind, since I donated over eleven grocery bags full of educational books to a local used bookstore over the weekend. I had to clear off some shelves to make room for having another bookcase upstairs. My arms still feel the affects from carrying said books up and downstairs in our home. I laugh as I write this and look at a Willow Tree figurine I recently won in a contest with Martha Rogers blog. It's a figure of a girl, hugging a book to her chest and its called 'Love of Learning.'
Then in today's mail, a box of books arrived from Amazon. One book is a school book for my son for this fall. Likely the last school book I will need to buy for him since he will be a senior. Two of the books are writing books, and one is true stories of mail-order brides.
But of all the books I've read through the years, and there have been many, the one that I continue to read and always return to each day is God's word. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105 Only God's word provides daily nourishment.
