Give gifts that last forever. Give a book, if longevity is what you seek. Give a book if you seek to live long after you live not. To be immortal, give a book. A book, you see, will never give up its ghost. A book will never seperate its life force from the medium it is contained within.

No such luck for the human body. At some point, sooner for others, later for the lucky ones(?), this thing called life is over. If it was in the cards for us, we knew longevity. If not, then perhaps we lived with gusto.

Books, on the other hand, have been granted the power to go on, and on, and on. In the best of cases, they remain in their homes, bound physically, self contained, with their stories always at the ready to reveal themselves to a new reader. And the trick, of course, is that a “voice” from centuries past, such as Shakespeare, Dante, Cicero, Homer, Plato, Aristoteles, and yes, one might hope, that a voice much less known, such as mine, Thomas Jerome Baker, might outlive life itself…

Give a gift that lives forever…give a book…whenever and wherever you can…give a book to someone you love, and even better, give a book to someone who needs motivation, inspiration, hope…

Give a book my friend…
