  4. This is one of my favorite book quotes!

  5. Great quote! I thought of using it myself too. Who wouldn’t want a paradise of books?

  6. That is totally my idea of paradise! Along with unlimited time to read.

    What a perfect quote, Erik!

    And btw, I made that phone call to that local author we talked about. So she should be connecting with you at some point.

  7. Love the quote! Would just like to add …. “with a dog beside you”. Thanks for visiting my blog, Erik. Yours looks very interesting ~ I’ll be exploring it in more depth.

  8. Nice one! Am going to tweet about it. (Love libraries … )

  9. Reblogged this on On My Mind and commented:
    I saw this and just HAD to post it here! I, for one, agree with the quote; Do you?

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. So, of course, I wanted to come to see yours. I think I did the other day. 🙂
    I love the quote…and that would be paradise for me. But it makes me think of the old Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith where the world ends and he is safe in the underground somewhere…with a huge library at his disposal…he was always trying to grab moments during work to read. And then…he breaks his glasses…and can’t see to read anything…now that was definitely hell for him.
