I like this time of day:

The late afternoon and the books in the living room begin to glow, appearing golden,
as if revealing their true value.

The Renaissance humanist Erasmus famously wrote: "When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes."

We all have our priorities.

He also less-famously wrote "Your library is your paradise." 

I have at times turned to my books, whether seeking enlightenment or entertainment, insight or solace, or simply to enjoy the company of great minds, and thought,
"Welcome to Paradise."
