I’m a real Book Owl – I could stay up all night with books (if I didn’t need the sleep, that is). I’m an artist too, and one day when I was sketching, a little owl appeared on the paper. I named him Book Owlie. He likes books too, and wants to tell it to everyone. If you like little Book Owlie, you will find his Zazzle and Cafepress homes by clicking on the links.
Any time is good for reading – especially when you can download hundreds of books to your cellphone or pad. I’ve spent many a moment reading with my mobile phone while waiting in a que, or sitting in a train or bus, or waiting for someone.
So, you love books? Don’t we all. The only problem is there is never enough time to read all the books we’d like to read.
When I painted this Book Owlie, my husband peeked over my shoulder and commented that finally I had painted a self portrait. I cannot say he is wrong… I have books lying in every room (yes, even the bathroom), and I steal a moment or two to read a few lines if at all possible.
I wouldn’t mind receiving this kind of a trophy!
If you have anyone you know who is an avid reader, and would deserve some recognition for it, show this little Book Owlie to them.
You will find little Owlie at home when you click the store links on top of the page.
I know from experience what Book Owlie says here – studying Egyptology for five years certainly gave the idea to this little painting.
I love historical novels too, not just non-fiction books. They make me feel alive in an era I never knew.
Where ever you lay your book, that’s your home… If you have a good book with you, you’ll feel right at home, no matter where you are. Be it fiction or facts, poems or guide books…
The world around us changes, but one thing remains – books.
Little Book Owlie here loves books… How could it be otherwise?
Fears and ignorance cause many aggressions in this world. Books can educate us and help us understand each other and the world.
That is also why it is very important people around the world learn to read and write.
And how about buying a book, when you next wonder what to buy as a present?
Little Book Owlie knows the best home is one filled with books. A good-sized library with a bed, bathroom and kitchen… Lots of cozy armchairs and reading lamps… Rows and rows of book shelves arranged on the walls. Ladders and step stools to reach the higher shelves.
Now what could be a better house than that? I sure haven’t figured that out yet…
If you agree with Book Owlie here, this painting is available at Zazzle and Cafepress (links at the top of the page).
Never believe anyone who says romance novels are not worth reading. They will have read one, even if they have done it in secret.
The fact is – love remains eternal between the covers of a good book. Sometimes, if life feels grey, opening your favorite novel at the most romantic spot (which you know by heart, of course), and reading it again, can save your day…
