Where the blog’s title comes from

April 18, 2007 at 11:06 pm (Title of blog)

I took the title from a poem by children’s author and illustrator Arnold Lobel:

“Books to the ceiling, books to the sky.

My piles of books are a mile high.

How I love them!

How I need them!

I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them.”

This poem, along with Lobel’s delightful illustration, can be found in Whiskers & Rhymes.
