Review quote

"This is a beautiful book to enjoy leisurely. It is not something you sit down and read through, but you should read through it slowly, contemplating as you go. While it is too small to be considered a 'coffee table' book, that is actually a good way to display it for your visitors to enjoy. The cover is beautiful and a great draw to open the book. The writings inside are from various authors or literary greats, some better known that others, but thought provoking and intriguing. You will wax nostalgic as you meander through this delightful little book." Lifelong Learning"
