Quote du jour/Storm Jameson

We need the slower and more lasting stimulus of solitary reading as a relief from the pressure on eye, ear and nerves of the torrent of information and entertainment pouring from ever-open electronic jaws. It could end by stupefying us.
(Margaret) Storm Jameson (1891-1986)


  1. I love this quote. I so believe it too. I also like your new header picture.

  2. Well, isn't that the truth!!!!

    Love your new blog banners of books!

  3. I wish I looked like Storm Jameson. In fact, I wish I had that name too. Thanks for putting me onto her.

  4. So true and she must have written this pre-internet, iphone and electronic media!

  5. Vintage Reading, I'm so pleased you came over to read it. I found her words just amazing!


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
