Favorite Quotes

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."


— Henry Miller

Take a Break with the Bachelor Brothers

Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast

Title: Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast
By: Bill Richardson

Ever wanted to just get away to a place where everyone can relax and read? The Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast is the place for you. Set on an unnamed island somewhere off Vancouver Island, check out this B & B for your next retreat. Middle aged twin brothers, Virgil and Hector, write about their lives operating the B & B and intersperse chapters written by their frequent guests. All are bibliophiles. Hector and Virgil even include lists of books to read for certain occasions. My favorite is "Hector's List of Favourite Authors for the Bath."
Time moves slowly at the Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast, but they are never bored. It is often a place of relaxation and rejuvenation. Just reading about the B & B and it's guests helped me relax and get away for a few hours.
