"I cannot live without books" ~ Thomas Jefferson
Smart man ;)
I didn't know that I got anything in common with your third president either :)
Awesome! I feel the same.
That's my favorite presidential quote for sure!
Yes, so true.
Sees to be true of me as well!
Sorry, that was SEEMS to be true for me as well ...LOL
Very smart guy. I can't live without em either!
I definitely agree with that quote!
Oh, I love that plaque! I'd enjoy having something like this in my office/den/library.Thanks for sharing.Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT
Ooh I was in DC recently and bought a really nice bookmark at the library of congress that says that. Smart man, indeed!
He seems to have been a smart man. I totally agree with him.
Love it!! Thanks for the smile!I'm going to see if I can find a bubble bath!
Thomas Jefferson seems to have been an everyman. It's hard to find something he wasn't involved in. Here's My Saturday Snapshot
It is almost like him and I share a brain. At least when it comes to books :)
I used to have a t-shirt that said that. I was wearing it one day and a man approached me and said, "Hi, I'm books." When I asked to repeat what he said, he said, "you can't live without me." I never wore it again.
WOW!Enjoyed looking at that!Here is my Saturday Snapshot post!
I didn't know that, either! I always liked Jefferson. :)
LOL That makes two of us! Love the quote!
We can all connect with ol' Tom through that quote!:)
Yes! And didn't I read he was instrumental in setting up or starting many libraries?

I just read the same quote from another blog this morning. I guess great minds think alike :)
He was such an avid reader - I've heard his library is astounding!
so awesomealso, did not know he was the third president ;)
what a perfect sign! I'd love to have that in my house! I have decorated all over with quotes and phrases and inspirational words - this sign would be perfect over one of my bookshelves!
Jenny Takemeaway: O cool! I love DC :)Gina Hott: Oooo good call!Christie: *giggle*Bermuda: OMG LOL What a wacko. How sad that you didn't wear it again.
