For the Love of Books

We are readers around here, all of us. A good book and the time to read it, or a vacation? Hmmm...tough choice. Aren't they essentially the same thing?

From Emily Dickinson:

There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry –
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll –
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul.
