Stacking Up and Defying Time (+1)

This week I have been prompted to do several things for different groups, so I am doubling up. One of my prompts was "stack it up high", so there are the books, and another prompt was "defiance". Reading for me is like defying gravity, or time, for this matter, since I am always pressed for time and with being a teacher and a mom, I barely and rarely have time for much else. But believe me I do defy time or the lack of thereof, and squeeze a book here and there!

    Wonderful image, and wonderful way to defy time. Love the light and your choice of focus on the foreground books, leaving the reader alone to read in the bokeh.

    I'm a teacher-librarian and the envy of the staff - I *have* to make time to read. Mostly YA lit but lots of books. Great shots!
