A House Without Books

"A house without books is like a room without windows.No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them"

Horace Mann.

Such a great quote! And so true. Few things are more rich and wonderful than books!

PS. What a lovely blog you have :)
