This Week's Purchases

These are all Christmas gifts to myself!

Quartet in Autumn by Barbara Pym

Merry Christmas to me!

“Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity… we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance.”
- A.E. Newton
