No WordPress challenge, so read a book

“I don’t know what your childhood was like, but we didn’t have much money. We’d go to a movie on a Saturday night, then on Wednesday night my parents would walk us over to the library. It was such a big deal, to go in and get my own book.”
– Robert Redford


If any of you are suffering withdrawal due to the termination of the Daily Post weekly photo challenges, why not follow in the steps of Robert Redford?


I’ve decided to post some travel quotations to keep my Wednesday evenings busy (though I’m starting with a Wednesday quote). Of course, the words will be accompanied with an image or two.

If any of the quotations inspire you too, do feel free to link in or to pop your URL in the comments.  I’m not running it as an official challenge, as I may not have time to post this every week, but any participation is very welcome.

  1. The library has been an integral part of my life since the time I was old enough for my mom to read to me…a very long time…and it will continue to do so until the day I die. I’ve read plenty of discussion about e-readers vs books. I love books, but I love to read and when I travel, the e-reader (Kindle in my case or downloaded library books on my iPad) goes with me to feed my addiction.

    • I’m the same as you – a book is so much better
      Now I sometimes buy a book in both formats, especially if it’s fat – I read the book at home and go electronic who travelling, even on the train into London.

  2. Love the first two images, and I often remember browsing the second hand bookshops in Twickenham in the early ’80s….there were seven that I counted, but long gone…..
