October's Bookish Art...

Eastman Johnson - The Girl I Left Behind Me

"I know that my life is marked by the road signs of my beloved books,
each one symbolizing who I was when I read it, shaping who I have become.
The uninitiated might say that I am lost in my books,
but I know I am more found than lost."
--Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer


  1. Beautiful painting and quote. It is interesting to me to think of the book "road signs" along the way in my life...and how powerful a book can be. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. What an awesome painting--and the quote is wonderful too. Are you reading The Book Whisperer? I really do remember what books I was reading during key world and personal events.

    1. I've read The Book Whisperer several times...usually in August before school starts up again.
