A Library That Lives On

After reading Maureen Dowd's NYT's article, A Woman Who Found A Way To Write, (a sentimental and historical story about her mother who passed away over the weekend) it made me think about the wonders of libraries and how we can keep the tradition of the library alive while we embrace and integrate the digital information age and pass it too along to the next generation. Dowd writes, "Mom was not famous, but she was remarkable. Her library included Oscar Wilde, Civil War chronicles, Irish history and poetry books, as well as "Writing to the Point: Six Basic Steps," and the 1979 "Ever Since Adam and Eve: The Satisfactions of Housewifery and Motherhood in the Age of Do-Your-Own-Thing.'" 

What's on your bookshelf  that suggests who you are, how you think, how you view the world, where you've been?

My all time favorite reads and re-reads are J.D. Saliger's, Catcher in the Rye and Eric Butterworth's, Discover the Power Within You : A Guide to the Unexplored Depths Within.
