From the beginning of the first chapter: THE FRIENDLINESS OF BOOKSALTHOUGH I were to talk to you long and earnestly on the friendliness of books, I could not sufficiently celebrate their dear friendliness. It is impossible to tell all the joy that comes from the companionship of books-that is something that one must feel. But I shall like to tell you many reasons why books are dear to me.

It is impossible to tell all the joy that comes from the companionship of books-that is something that one must feel. But I shall like to tell you many reasons why books are dear to me. I cannot remember when books began to be my friends, because I have no memory of learning to read; ever since I can remember books have been my greatest delight. My education was somewhat like Bridget Elia's, and here at the very threshold of this hour, let me tell you that two of your dearest friends, if you're reading girls, will be Charles and Mary Lamb. If you already know them, you may rest assured that they are your lifelong friends. In the essays which he signs Elia, Charles Lamb always calls his sister "my cousin Bridget," and this is the way he tells us that she read: "Her education in youth was not much attended to; and she happily missed all that female garniture which passeth by the name of accomplishments. She was tumbled early, by accident or design, into a spacious closet of good old English reading, without much selection or prohibition, and browsed at will upon that fair and wholesome pasturage. Had I twenty girls, they should be brought up exactly in this fashion. I know not whether their chances in wedlock might be diminished by it; but I can answer for it, that it makes (if the worst comes to the worst) most incomparable old maids."In my youth, I was tumbled into a closet of good English reading, and it was my chief delight. So much is it my habit and my pleasure to read, that when I enter a room, the first thing for which my eye instinctively looks is a book. I don't like to sleep in a room where there are no books. In my own room, I open my eyes every morning to my friends on the shelves, hundreds of them, and say, "There you are, old Books, History~~General, Book-Of-Hours~~Ellen-Thompson, 999999999, A Book of Hours, Ellen Thompson, 054824314X, Kessinger Publishing Company, , , , , Kessinger Publishing Company
