Splash du Jour: Wednesday

A civilization without retail bookstores is unimaginable. Like shrines and other sacred meeting places, bookstores are essential artifacts of human nature. The feel of a book taken from the shelf and held in the hand is a magical experience, linking writer to reader.

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends!
Have a great Wednesday!

Hi, Libby.
Thank you for that link -- the bookstores are just GORGEOUS!
Techno-dinosaur that I am, I am not on Twitter or even Facebook. I don't even have a cell phone. I'm thinking of getting indoor plumbing soon.
