Welcome Book Lovers, Animal Lovers and men and women of the world!

I hope you find something to interest you in my blog. I wanted a place to share my love of books, make some sense of the Universe, and possibly make some friends along the way. If you like what you see, please feel free to comment, and if you are a fellow book lover or animal lover, it's a pleasure to know you. Come back any time and share your day with me!

Word Of The Day

Acedia-........translated as sloth
                     a spiritual laziness
                          a soul deep boredom
     a distaste for the world and everything in it
                    the absence of care
             a kind of spiritual morphine

These are definitions borrowed from several different descriptions of Kathleen Norris' book of the same name so I can't take credit for them but I thought they were as accurate as necessary to get the point across.
