Books, Like Tissues


At our house we 
use tissues 
as bookmarks.  

Allergy-prone,
boxes sit  
in every room, 
which is where, 
also, we read –
every room.  

“We have too many 
books,” my daughter 
once commented.

This, I believe, 
is how it should be, 
just like the tissues.  

You never want to run out.

  1. Agreed
    We also have tissues next to every place we sit. Every one....and pencils. Always pencils. For underlining (when we can).

    1. I carry the pencils in my hair, except that now that I've cut my hair it doesn't work so well! :)

  2. This made me smile, Kelly. I love how you connect these two, tissues and books, with our never wanting to run out of either. Brilliant and true :-)
