Bookish Inspiration

I joined an online book club via Facebook, and someone posted this lovely snippet from the poem, "Despondency Corrected":

Books are yours,
Within whose silent chambers treasure lies
Preserved from age to age; more precious far
Than that accumulated store of gold
And orient gems which, for a day of need,
The sultan hides deep in ancestral tombs,
These hoards of truth you can unlock at will.

William Wordsworth


  1. Hi Beth! I'm a fellow book lover. I do my best to pass that love on to all of our children, even those for whom reading is difficult. I saw in your sidebar that you are an NCHE blogger. That was the first homeschool conference I ever attended. I loved the heart of that conference.

  2. I've never heard of NCHE. Do they have an organized group of bloggers?

  3. Dan, NCHE is North Carolina for Home Education, and I believe this year is the first year they've had a group of bloggers organized for the conference.
