Happy Birthday, Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson Quote
In honor of Emily Dickinson’s birthday (December 10), here is one of her poems. Does this one make your whole body cold?

Winter is good – his Hoar Delights
Italic flavor yield –
To Intellects inebriate
With Summer, or the World –

Generic as a Quarry
And hearty – as a Rose –
Invited with asperity
But welcome when he goes.

We hope you’ll take time in the coming winter days to curl up in front of a crackling fire with a good book of poetry.

Double the Pleasure

Quotes - PP - Pleasure of Reading copy
Katherine Mansfield once wrote, “The pleasure of reading is doubled when one lives with another who shares the same books.”

This is so true. Whenever I read a wonderful book, it makes me so happy when somebody else in my family reads it, too, so that we can discuss it afterwards.
