Autumn Is Afoot!

Time to surrender to the beckoning shadows and nestle in half-hidden spaces with a book...


Not Craigslist finds, but $10 each at Barnes and Noble.

  1. I love your photography, Andie. It always looks professional and well composed.

    I'm going to read some of the classics myself this fall, looking forward to it!

    1. Be sure to check Amazon. Lots of books for one cent!

  2. There is no Frigate like a Book
    To take us Lands away,
    Nor any Coursers like a Page
    Of prancing Poetry ––

    This Traverse may the poorest take
    Without oppress of Toll ––
    How frugal is the Chariot
    That bears a Human soul!


    ~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    1. I put them where I can see them. It is like being in the company of old friends.

  3. "Oh you have so many books! I I just love books, Mrs. Burnside. They're so decorative."

  4. Please take some advice from an Old Hand, Andie.

    When you retreat into those beckoning shadows to read a good book, please be sure your corner is well lighted. Reading in too dim a light –– no matter how romantic the image –– really can put dangerous strain on your eyes.

    1. I am learning that, my friend. We take so much for granted.
