and so beguile thy sorrow

Get yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit, silence your phone, sit down in a comfy chair and treat yourself this slice of bookish wonderousness


from Bookshelf Porn – one of my absolute most favouritest blogs.  Daily delights delivered into my RSS feeder.  I’ve wittered about my library before and pictures of luscious book collections from around the world really does fuel my fictional fetish.

Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.
Virginia Woolf

an apposite seeming quotation found by some enjoyable SEO on this lovely list of library related quotations which also generated my title

Come, and take choice of all my library,
And so beguile thy sorrow.
– William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus
