In every room of our home, you’ll find books… on books on books on books. We like big books and we can not lie.
Want to read a melancholy stanza from Edgar Allen Poe? We got you. In the mood to hear a little Odin adventure for your bedtime story? Grab the big ol’ Norse Mythology encyclopedia. Are you questioning how to properly crosshatch using charcoal pencil on mixed media paper? Don’t fret, we have a plethora of art literature for you to thumb through.
I’ve been an avid reader ever since I learned to recognize sight words and the book collecting started shortly thereafter. I want to provide a wide range of literature for our family, from novels to comic books to encyclopedias, and everything in between. My goal is to cultivate within the girls a love and appreciation for books, a respect for the written word, and a desire to always continue learning, no matter how much they think they already know.
And I firmly believe that a good collection of books should be accompanied by various reading nooks that are readily available. And music. Books should be accompanied by music. Sometimes enjoyed separately, sometimes together. But both speak to the soul and should be there like a good shoulder to lean on, ready when you need it.
