the base library

Today I finally went to our base library - I'm so glad I did!  Of course, libraries on Air Force bases aren't very big (at least not the ones I've encountered so far), but this one surprised me by being sweet and well-stocked.  We were only there for a few minutes so I just grabbed a book by a familiar author, but I'm looking forward to many days of browsing the shelves.  Is there anything nicer than stolen moments amidst books?  :)

"No possession can surpass, or even equal a good library, to the lover of books. Here are treasured up for his daily use and delectation, riches which increase by being consumed, and pleasures that never cloy." 
- John Alfred Landford (1823-1903)

"A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them." 
- Lemony Snicket
