Cynthia was 50 days to her 3rd bDay in case you are wondering.
And she was thrilled by so many books

Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.
~ Henry Ward Beecher ~

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
~ Joseph Addison ~

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
~ Joseph Brodsky ~
