Thornton Bibliothèque suite

We have had a wild time to renovate our attic.  
Read our previous posts here 
and here 
The final countdown . . . . . . 

“Second hand books are wild books,
homeless books;
they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather,
and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.” 

Virginia Woolf

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!
How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!
When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an
excellent library.” 
Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice

If you have a garden and a library,
you have everything you need.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed,
I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before i'd let go of the books I possess
H P Lovecraft
