"...a life spent reading-that is a good life." -Annie Dillard
Great quote and picture. Homes for us even where we wouldn't want to be. At least it would be only till the book finishes, lol.
Reading definitely takes us on a journey - like the quote, Lark, and the picture.
Love the quote and the evocative picture.
Great quote, and absolutely loe the painting. Somehow it has a more "current" feel to it than I would have expected from something painted in the 1890s. I suppose it just proves that a love of reading is so universal that readers feel a kinship with other readers no matter how different they otherwise may be.
Oh I love that. Beautiful.
Love both the painting and the quote.
That's a beautiful quote to match a beautiful picture! Nice pairing, Lark! :)
That painting is stunning! Not an artist I've ever heard of. Mind you, what I know about art could be written on a postage stamp... ;-)
What a great quote! Gorgeous painting, too! :D
Very true. I use reading as escapism, but also appreciate the wonderful community that I have centered around books. There's such power in that!
I love that. I'm sure I look like that reading books all the time too. lol
Both the quote and the painting are perfect! Great finds!
Love the painting. From the girl's hand over her mouth, her book must've been very engaging - a thriller perhaps? Or the hero/heroine's in peril? :)
Love that quote and the painting!
As usual, perfect image and quote combo.
I love this quote and the painting. Thank you for sharing!
Gorgeous painting! I love the image (and the idea of a woman sitting alone with a book in a bar/restaurant/any public place).
Oh I love that quote and the mood of the painting!You asked about my favorite Lynn Cahoon series and I think I'd have to say the Tourist Trap series. It's not flawless but it's a solid cozy series.
Thanks! I'll have to see if some of those books are at my library. :D
What a neat painting. I have not seen it before but there's so many details to it to look at.
Oh my goodness, I LOVE this painting and especially this quote. It's SO very true!
Sp beautiful, as always. I absolutely love the quote. I must back to posting some, just didn't have the time lately.
