Personal Libraries

John Ruskin said, "I would urge upon every young [person] to obtain as soon as they can, by severest economy, a steadily increasing series of books, for use through life; making their little library, of all their furniture, the most studied and decorative piece."

"It is a [person's] duty to have books.  A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessaries of life." - Henery Ward Beecher

"No money should be wasted upon whims and experiments, but every dollar should be devoted to the acquisition of improving books." Ainsworth Rand Spofford

Are those your shelves, Halli? If so, I approve!

yes, as a matter of fact they are! I am lucky, I get a huge budget for homeschooling and this is the result.
