The Library


I visited a couple of other sites and noticed they had book threads. We've always talked about hte RV's fabulous library, so now it is officially open. The West wall has windows that look out to the ocean, and there is a lovely patio where one can enjoy the view, an open pit fireplace, both the bar and unbar are open. Once you leave the library to read or relax on the ocean view terrace, the as you exit, the books will be automatically microsprayed with a protective covering that will preserve the books against the element of nature. The CB's are there to assist.

Out of the East side one can exit through the large ealk through windows to a mountain setting, fresh pine air, a small forest setting, were we have a campfire, marshmellows for toasting. The mountains are snowcapped and the air is always the right temperature. The Lumberjacks will take care of your epicurean needs, as well as the Lumberjills, (BW's)

From the North side the library has a lovely large reading room with the most comfortable furniture, perfect light settings, lots of natural sun light as well as a sun roof and small tables for snacks should you desire them. This room is staffed by the biblio babes and manuscript men (in kilts)

The South side has not been completed yet, but the staff insist we open for your reading enjoyment

So what 'cha reading?
I'm half way through the Harry Potter book and I am savoring it.

Re: The Library


I'm reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (when I'm upstairs) and Tara Road by Maeve Binchy (when I'm downstairs). I've read both a million times. They're two of my favorite books ever. I haven't made it to the library for several weeks, which is why I'm reading old standbys.

I highly recommend anything by Maeve Binchy.

Barbara Kingsolver is also good. I've only read The Poisonwood Bible, but I've heard her other books are equally good.

I also really like Nicholas Sparks (I like him when I feel romantic). He also has a non-fiction book called Two Weeks With My Brother which was excellent (and not a particle romantic).

I read only when the spirit moves me. On my recent train ride I had a lot of time to get "moved".

I have a whole new respect for you! I was an ancient Roman history major with a side order of Latin.

Re: The Library


I am an omniverous reader. I will read almost anything that has been printed, and I have been known- or at least here is a family rumor that I will even read the sides of whatever is in thebathroom cabinet if I am stuck in the little bibliophiles room.


PS- O I have fininshed Harry Potter, so let me know what you think.

Re: The Library


Harry Potter-- People were bumping into walls, reading and walking around here recently.

Ah, the Roman connection! We're so much like them. When I was in New York, I wondered if it was much different than Rome in its heyday.

Re: The Library


I finished the new HP too. Same thing, in the airports that's all I saw, people with their noses deep in the books.

Now I'm reading A wrinkle in time.

Next: herodytus.

Re: The Library


I read the message boards....

I bought Handmaid's Tale on Mrs. D's advice...read the first 6 pages and stopped. I don't have time to read for pleasure right now.

I read "-Ake as in Cake" with my daughter about 50,000 times last week. Does that count?

Re: The Library


I loved the "Handmaid's Tale". It's like one of the four fiction books I've read. The movie was nice and creepy.
