Walther Firle Three Reading Girls - The Fairytale I have this picture because I have three girls.years later my youngest tells me it always scared her! (she is 23 now)

I was born with a reading list that grows each year. I may never finish it~! <3

The Fairy Tale Art Poster Print by Sir Walter Firle - my husband gave me this framed print when I was in college

Saw this pic on the blog Notes in the Key of Life and just had to start a books and reading board to post photos that inspire me on all things books! In fact, I'm already feeling inspired to bring back the Ascending Butterfly Monthly Book Club!

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.I miss my children reading on my lap.
