I LOVE books…so this was such a great sight!

Posted by carolom on August 5, 2008

I was born into a book loving family…which is very fortunate as my parents were born into the low-to-no-opportunities of a northern English factory town where education often stopped very early in life and menial work began.
Neither of my parents had the opportunity for higher education but that did not stop them from reading, learning, reading, learning…and passing on the passion for books to us..crossword puzzles, scrabble, big books, small books……libraries are a big part of our families external life!..:)

On the weekend Sal and I went to the markets at the Port Adelaide docks and as we strolled around the second level of these big old converted wharf sheds…this is what we saw.

A higgldy-piggldy mass of books, books, books…with such chaotic order, that I am sure some of those books on the bootom are never viewed, because their sole purpose is to hold up the pile!

    My last scrummage through a similiar looking (yet older and dustier) delight here in Sydney brought forth a map of Spain and from Deepak Choopra ‘The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire’. If books could talk πŸ™‚ well the beyond print word πŸ™‚ as in reporting on their last adventure in someone’s hopefully ‘loving’ hands. They would have a few stories to tell !!!
