“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” Marcus Tullius Cicero (Source: Goodreads).

I love books. I have a room in my house that acts as a mini-library. It is full of books. Several shelves worth of books line the walls. I would be surprised if there were under a thousand books there, there are probably more.

Have I mentioned I love books? I have read most of them, and have several waiting to be read. My biggest issue is that my reading desire goes in phases. For weeks or months I will devour any book put in front of me. Then I fumble and can’t read for however long it takes to recover. It’s bizarre since I love to read, but if I try to pick up a book in that low tide I will reread half a dozen times and not take it in.

Books, like music, bring fire to my soul.

Music for reading – Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Debussy, Liszt, Schumann
