Theme Day - Books


A puppet for sale in Eze village - around his neck, a tray of books.

'Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.' ~ Christopher Morley

It's the first of the month and so it's Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers with 178 blogs participating in the 'Books' theme. Do spend some time enjoying the many interpretations I know you'll find. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

That is the most fabulous Puppet I have ever seen. And your post is cool too.

I'm so glad you liked my Daniel Craig/James Bond post. Are you counting the days down until the opening? Harry and William were in the news here this week as they attended the opening and met Mr. Craig and the cast.

Hope you are having a great weekend. xoxo from The Prairie.
