The Holy Word

“It was far more than an air,” said Dolly solemnly. “The floor sounds covered with books. Charles sent me to know what is to be done, for he feels certain you don’t know.”
“Books!” cried Margaret, moved by the holy word. “Dolly, are you serious? Has she been touching our books?”

    I want to walk up and take a book off of that shelf. The picture is so tempting.

      Isn’t it great?! If you go to the source, it’s labelled too. :D

    Ok, I love both the picture and the quote, here. Lovely!

    Love the quote (which makes me wonder if I should reread Howards End soon) but, even more, adore the photo.

    I’m reading Howard’s End right now and was about to put it down (I’m about 40 pages in) but this quote makes me want to keep going. Thanks!
    (I’m glad you’re feeling better. I hope it keeps up!)

    I always love looking at other people’s shelves!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
