“No day will ever erase you from the memory of time”

I love books. I think they are the best present to give, and the best present to get. For Christmas I give books to the kids I know. Why do they need another toy. Toys don't ignite the imagination, they don't encourage children want to learn. Even for Christmas I gave Jackson books.

The one thing I wish I had more of when Jackson was alive was children's books. Tim would read to my belly when I was pregnant, but at the time I only had a few. Even when Jackson was born, we read to him at night before we would put him to bed. We only had a few so we would rotate through the 10 or so that we had. After he died I put me energy into aquiring more books.

Scholastic orders have been my curse. They have such great deals on books, 6 great books for $20. So Tim and I have been trying to get through our new library, which I didn't think was that big....I was wrong. We have probably close to 150 books and counting. I have not bought all these books but some of them are our childhood books that are parents have given us. I am in love with my library and can't wait to share it with our children. So when you think about what to get a child...get a book, they don't go out of style, they won't get to old and not want to play with it and they can pass them along to their children.


  1. I completely agree! For years, I have been building a library as well! Books are timeless and open the doors to imagination like no TOY can!

  2. I try to buy books for all my grandchildren at gift that keeps giving.
