How many books are in your Home Library?
"Home Libraries Provide Huge Educational Advantage"
"A group of researchers found the presence of book-lined shelves in the home - and the intellectual environment those volumes reflect - gives children an enormous advantage in school."
"In China, a child whose parents own 500 books will average 6.6 more years of education than a comparable child from a bookless home. In the U.S., the figure is 2.4 years - which is still highly significant when you consider it's the difference between two years of college and a full four-year degree."
"Regardless of how many books the family already has, each addition to a home library helps the children get a little farther in school," they report. "But the gains are not equally great across the entire range. Having books in the home has a greater impact on children from the least-educated families."

Books are..., a Library is....
A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.
~ Henry Ward Beecher
Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.
Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.
~Henry Ward Beecher
A house without books is like a room without windows.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves," New York Times, 7 August 1991
If there is a heaven, I don't believe it's going to be like that at all...I don't want a mansion or a palace, Della. I want a schoolroom, filled with little children, with readers and crayons and paints and chalk. Little children, all big-eyed and eager to learn. And I'd want a big library. The biggest library you've ever seen. One that's opened all the time, not just half days. That's what I hope heaven's like.
~Maudie Ferguson speaking, in Cassandra King's Making Waves. Hyperion, 2004.
