Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever." ~Ghandi

What complex creatures we are. Our thoughts, our dreams, our hopes, they are the essence of what it means to be human. Books are the key to exploring that world, a different journey for each person who has walked this earth.

Up rose the wild old winter-king; And shook his beard of snow, "I hear the first young hard-bell ring, 'Tis time for me to go! Northward o'er the icy rocks, Northward o'er the sea, My daughter comes with sunny locks: This land's too warm for me!" ~Charles Godfrey Leland, American humorist

Old man winter is outside your window, but that's okay. You're snug inside with one of these bestsellers picked up from the Southlake Public Library.
