"...a life spent reading-that is a good life." -Annie Dillard
Love that Trollope quote. Avoid novel has seen me through a few setbacks!
Books are a great anodyne for whatever ails you. :)
Love the picture, it really conveys Summer to me!Kind regards,
It really does capture that feeling of summer. I hope you're enjoying your summer, Bettina. :)
Lovely, such a peaceful setting - a glass of ice tea on a tiny table nearby would be perfection.
Yes! Maybe with a chocolate chip cookie, or two. :)
Beautiful painting and quote. I seriously need to get back to Trollope.
I seriously need to start reading that Trollope book I've now owned for at least five years! Talk about bookish procrastination. :)
I love that picture. It seems the perfect setting for summer reading.
Doesn't it? I love this painting, too. :)
Love that picture! I want that porch and couch.
I want that big, shady front porch, too! :)
So pretty! Gives off a nice summer vibe. :)
It's the perfect painting for this month, isn't it? :)
Very pretty. That's where I want to be right now.
Me, too! Especially if the temps aren't anywhere near the 100s. :)
I love that picture. That, to me, is a perfect summer day.Marvelous quote too... :)
It does look like a perfect summer day! :)
Beautiful! Yes to some reading on a sunny porch... :)
All you need is a comfortable pillow and a stack of books and something cool to drink. :)
So pretty! I'd love to be sitting on that porch today. :)
Me, too! It looks so shady and cool. :)
Lovely! It reminds me of my grandparents' front porch.
It's one of my favorite paintings. :)
So serene! I love this.
A great reminder of the power of books!
I don't know what I would do without them. :)
Fantastic quote and that picture is really appealing too. Makes me want a reading couch on my porch. :)
Right? I want a big shady front porch like that one. :)
I want to read on that couch! And I love that quote too!
Isn't that the perfect place to read a good book?
Oh wow, that painting is everything! Who wouldn't want to be in a setting like that enjoying a good book. Thank you for sharing this!
Isn't it the perfect summer reading spot? :D
Great art combined with a great quote.
Lovely painting! Looks like the perfect place to read in the summer. :)
