My last choice (spread over longer than intended). Each time I’ve posted a pic of a book I enjoyed & nominated someone to do the same. I nominate today. Meanwhile, this book is tough going, but essential for Schumann fans!

5/7 The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations 1941 edition Most of the quotations aren't famous. Like: "Amo, amas, I love a lass; And she's both sweet and tender. Her lovely face Is her nominative case, And she's of the feminine gender." It's a personal choice.

#2 Many books fostered my love of nature, but this 1978 publication (which I still own) was perhaps the most influential. I must've read it hundreds of times as a child & now I get to read it to my little boy Thanks for inspiring me with this!

4/4 The Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley The world’s great age begins anew, The golden years return, The earth doth like a snake renew Her winter weeds outworn: Heaven smiles, and faiths and empires gleam, Like wrecks of a dissolving dream.
