The Bookshelf

bookshelfHere is a list of books which I keep very close to hand, books I refer back to often…there aren’t many, relatively speaking, but each of these has played its part in helping me grow and develop, some represent writting which simply get the juices flowing and inspire me to get out there and do the work, others are true companions of arte…dog eared, written in, stained and torn…as any good book should be…books are not there to look pretty on a shelf and collect dust.  Just like the food we enjoy, a large part of what makes a book ‘good’ is down to taste as much as it is content, but a really good book should leave you feeling nourished yet hungry for more!
