It's no secret, my love for books.

"Books can be possessive, can't they?
Sometimes what's inside will change your life, but sometimes you don't even have to read it.
Sometimes it's a comfort just to have a book around...
'Why do you buy books you don't even read?' [someone] asks.
That's like asking someone who lives alone why they bought a cat.
For company, of course."
-Sarah Addison Allen
from The Sugar Queen

Couldn't have put it better myself, so I wont even try.

Tonight I shall be in some very good company indeed.
Books. Girlfriends. Bites to eat. And more books...

More about my book swap party later in the weekend.

"You have a library?
Oh yes! Indeed! With books!
 Gads of books! Mountains of books!
Forests of books! Cascades of books!
Swamps of books! 
More books than you'll ever be able to read in a lifetime!
Books on every subject ever studied, by every author who ever set pen to paper..."
- Beauty and the Beast

How FUN! I've always wanted to have a book swapping party. I'm definitely going to have one in Alaska since libraries.....well, they don't have many there. Let me know hot it goes! I've always wanted a library like Belle's. She's one of my top two favorite princesses! Except mine would have a fireplace. Swooon. :)

Have fun! I hope you come out with some great reads!
