Even when a whole library can fit in your palm, the gravity of stories in dog-eared books will never grow obsolete. —Rick Bragg
WHAT WE LOVE THIS WEEK
Rick Bragg writing about books. Rick Bragg writing about anything, really, but today his ode to books is helping us recover from the shock of reading about Marie Kondo's "bulk reduction method." Leave it to Bragg to soothe our book lovin hearts.
Gordon B. Hinckley. For so many reasons. One of which is his love for books: "There is something wonderful about a book. We can pick it up. We can heft it. We can read it. We can set it down. We can think of what we have read. It does something for us. We can share great minds, great actions, and great undertakings in the pages of a book."
We want to move to London for a bazillion reasons, but mostly so we can send out these.
The lovely Emma Watson's new book club: Our Shared Shelf. Hermoine Granger would wholeheartedly approve.
You. For putting up with our sporadic posting as of late. Things got away from us again this week. We won't bore you with the details - there are few things drearier than hearing other people talk about how busy they are. We're on it. Promise.
COMING NEXT WEEK
February's Book Club selection.
The things we promised last week from the week before that we didn't deliver once again. We have high hopes.
