"No one can make me feel inferior without my permission." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

I step in
And inhale
The faint, but wonderful smell
Of books

Books everywhere
Lining every plastered wall
Every brown, sturdy shelf
Everywhere, books

Hidden in these books
Who knows what they will find?
Mystery, adventure, romance, betrayal
Just to name a few

I want them all
But I pick only three
And when I get home,
I curl up in my comfortable, cozy bed with one
And I prepare to go on a journey.

The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness. ( Albert Einstein - The Merging of Spirit and Science)

I think it was great the way you added the distinct smell of fresh books because that is the first thing I notice when I go.
