Petting

I had a lovely package in my mailbox yesterday! As I briefly flipped through these books, I lovingly pet the cover when I was done. The hubs thought I was a tad bit off my rocker. Yes. I pet my books. Don't you?

I pet them and also smell them - inhale the scent of a new book. Crazy I know! :o)

No petting of books at Corgi Cottage... any petting being done is reserved for the two buttheads.
I do have a special table in my living room that's reserved for displaying lovely books to be admired.
