"Good books, good friends and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life".
~ Mark Twain
Well I don't know if a sleepy conscience paves the way for an ideal life. However good books and good friends really do enhance life. At the moment I am reading (again) Norman Vincent Peale's "The Power of Positive Thinking" and re-reading "At Home in Mitford" by Jan Karon. Which goes to prove that good books and good friends can be one and the same.
