Who Hath a Book

Who hath a book
Has friends at hand,
And gold and gear
At his command;

And rich estates,
If he but look,
Are held by him
Who hath a book.

Who hath a book
Has but to read
And he may be
A king indeed;

His Kingdom is
His inglenook;
All this is his
Who hate a book.

Wilbur D. Nesbit

This is so true! I sometimes get lost in really good books. I forget where I am. If I have been reading something where the people speak with accents or very formally...I often find myself speaking that way for several hours if not days. You can travel all over the world without ever leaving you house if you have Books. And actually read them!
