Why books.

There are books we love;
books we hate;
books we could not stop reading and books we could not finish no matter how much effort we put into it;
books that remind us a special moment;
books that we read and re-read and everytime they tell us something new and different;
books whose stories appeal to us, but we end up not reading it because we do not like the writing style;
books, we thought, were not worth the effort, which, instead, surprised us;
books we read during some holidays and we then forgot;
books which we won't ever forget;
books that will teach us something;
books which will make us furious and bitter;
books which will give us hope;
books which will make us laugh aloud like silly or cry like babies;
and then there is sometime  a very special book, that might change our life, the way we look at the world and at ourselves and which will enlighten us.

Books can be our companion,
they can be our fantasy and reality,
they can be mystery and discovery,
they can be safe and dangerous,
they can give us freedom to create something different.

This is why books are so important to me and are part of "The StillRoom" vision.
Because, I believe that they can create the right environment in which our life can blossom.

I hope we can share and enjoy them, I hope we can learn about new ones we didn't know about and rediscover some that were forgotten .

I will publish soon the list of books that are available for sale and the list of books which will be available for loan once "The StillRoom" will be open. If you have in mind some special book you wish to add please send me a note and I will see if I can find it at a reasonable price.
