If I have a thousand books,

I’ll read them every day;

I’ll make them a part of me.

And when I read all of them,

I’ll share it with some other friends.

And give to some of it to people who loves to read.

When I have more money,

I will build a library;

With lots of books display on it.

Thus, every kind of people,

Will go to read at my library with me.

If I had a thousand of books,

I’ll never wait for it to value them all.

Thus, one makes valuable;

For me, it’s more than a thousand books,

It’s one that counts thousands.

When a writer writes a book,

You will see, what he/she wants you to see.

Because a book contains a thousand words,

Words that will change or improve a part of you.

I want to know more about those authors of books.

I want to read what it is written on their piece;

Thus, one book is worth more than a thousand books,

For those who value, like I Am.

This poem was written when I was in 3rd-year college. I love books. From one book that I have, I'll collect hundreds then thousand... :) I just want to express my greatest fonds - "books".

      @ThreeKeys, I would also love to have a library at home. Right now I can't do it yet because our house is just small. When I buy a house I will make a space for a small room for a library. I do have a couple of books store right now stored in my big storage box. Keeping them for the future small library.

      Our books can be the open door to our birdcage where we can take off and easily meet truly wonderful and interesting people and ideas. I have a deep love and admiration for books and authours. Have you got your floor to ceiling bookshelves, yet? Love to have a library at home!
