Morsel and a Snap: Bookshop Wisdom

"I cannot live without books" ~ Thomas Jefferson
Until I read this plaque, I had no idea I had anything in common with our third president.

  9. Thomas Jefferson seems to have been an everyman. It's hard to find something he wasn't involved in.

  11. 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.
