Great books can be fiction or non-fiction. They can focus on history, geography, cooking, or etiquette.
Stacks of books are not dust collectors, but windows to the world.

My friend and our AJJ host for January, Erika, sent me these letters.
One final look at my used file folder that I colored with various art techniques, then added fussy cut books, pictures of graduates from a Mensa magazine, and large dimensional letters.
Still slogging away on my old slower than social enlightenment computer, where nothing talks to it, except my camera. Thanks for joining me again today. You are all so good to me, even though I'm so slow on the uptake.
