Books & More-The book store of my dreams
Reading a book isn’t about just the hour, 2 hours or 2 days that you spend reading it. It is about what you take away from the book, what remains with you.
Many of the books you read become part of who you are, they define you.
A book will awaken many hidden emotions within you. It’ll unlock your mind and give flight to your thoughts. And it’ll be so much more enjoyable because you can paint the canvas in the colors you want. You can sketch the characters in your mind using the author’s words. You can paint the sky in the colors you want and plant the flowers in the gardens as you choose. It’s your canvas. You are the artist.
Some of the most peaceful and happiest moments you will spend in your life will be curled up with a book in one hand and a coffee mug in the other. I know mine are. The pure warmth and emotion that fills you, as you laugh and cry with the characters of the book, is an experience that will leave you exhilarated, breathless and at the same time filled with a strange calm. It’ll make your eyes fill with tears for Meg and Amy and Jo and little Beth March.
As the warm coffee makes its way down your throat and you bite into a crunchy blueberry cup cake you fall in love with Elizabeth Bennet and dream about Darcy.
It is with the idea of getting to you this seductive and intoxicating combination of literature and a cuppa coffee, we bring to you “Books & More”
