Or, The Pursuit of Shelf Space:
July Fourth in the US is a celebration of our history and the ideals upon which the bold experiment of government and nation-building are built: Independence from non-representational rule, Freedom, Equality, Liberty. The Declaration of Independence, one of the cornerstone documents of our national philosophy offers pursuit of happiness as one of the ideals of a societal union:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
What makes one person happy, may not be exactly the same as what thrills another to the marrow, but it’s hard for a bibliophile to imagine that an afternoon in a hammock on a screen porch, an icy beverage in hand and the sounds and scents of summer carrying in on a gentle breeze while reading a good book not being a delight. It’s certainly something I pursue for my happiness.
What do you pursue for your happiness??
You may be aware I have a few books on my shelves and need to make room for more. This is how book bloggers pursue shelf space; shelf space also helps me feel happy, or at least less encumbered.
The giveaway is only open to domestic shipping and to persons 18 and older. If you are overseas but have a person in the US who will accept a package for you and you already know the address you may enter. I will not wait for you to set up the situation after the fact.
