Books have always made me happy.  I remember when I was a little girl, it would be such fun to ride my bike to the public library and fill up my basket with books.  Within days I had them all read and I'd go back and do it again.   Many years and many interests later, I still love books.  It was most enjoyable today to gather all of my art books together so they are readily accessible.  I actually get quite a bit of pleasure just looking at them lined neatly on the shelves.  I don't buy many books any more since so much information is a click away, but I must say, I still do love my books.  So between my books and Downton Abbey, it was a delicious day!

There's a blog I follow, Daisy Yellow, where Tammy posted about her reading list for 2014.  She included a variety of types of books, including the art books she has on her shelves, many of which also sit on my shelves!  Her list was quite the challenge that I'm not sure I would be able to live up to, but I found it inspiring.  I would really like to enjoy some of my books, for their content, in addition to them just "sitting pretty".  I also plan to participate in The Documented Life Project, a fun and exciting endeavor which I will share in another post.  Numerous activities are on my agenda for 2014.  Let the fun begin!
