Treasure Indeed

Literature was meant to give pleasure, to excite interest, to banish solitude, to make the fireside more attractive than the tavern, to give joy to those who are still capable of joy, and why should we not admit it – to drug sorrow and divert thought.
Augustine Birrell

Ah yes, a good book is a treasure indeed. I hope you have a favorite one to pick up and get lost in whenever you need a mini vacation.
