My Pocket Jamie (a gift from STARZ) arrived this afternoon! <g>
Here he is, keeping watch over my OUTLANDER book collection.
You could tell from the books whether a library was meant for show or not. Books that were used had an open, interested feel to them, even if closed and neatly lined up on a shelf in strict order with their fellows. You felt as though the book took as much interest in you as you did in it and was willing to help when you reached for it.Jamie was right about that. By those standards, my OUTLANDER hardcovers are very much interested in me <vbg>, and always willing to help!
