The weekend begins and as usual I try to find something….anything….that is not related to the dismal week that is passing….I saw a photo on Twitter and made me think of something my daughter had said awhile back…..
There was the famous Library At Alexandria…now we have the Library of Chuq…..
I have always been a book fan and over the years have accumulated in the neighborhood of 3000 books….not one of them is a work of fiction. My subjects range from politics, history, economics, Middle East and International relations…Hell I have more books on some subjects than my local library.
A few years back I was considering selling my house and moving to a smaller one and my daughter got tickled….she said that it would take a separate semi just to move my books….(this is where the photo I mentioned earlier comes in)……
It is sort of accurate when you consider that the bulk of my books came from Amazon…..
My grandfather so many years ago told me that there was NO better way to learn something than from books….and by God the old guy was right.
When I finally go down I worry about my books…..the house and car and any cash I have left is not as important to me as these books. Remember that you are NEVER too old to learn.
Thanx guys for letting me share that bit of Chuq with you and now go out and enjoy your Saturday…..
