Did You Know

 

Did you know, at the end of his life, and after Abigail had died, John Adams slept in his library room among his beloved books (which included novels by James Fenimore Cooper).

  2. He wanted to be near what he loved after losing so much.

  3. Didn't know that, but I can relate, and have told everyone to spread my ashes over a bookstore when it's time to go. Sending lots and lots of hugs, and going back to bed to get rid of this yucky headache. RO

    1. Good question. I'd be interested in knowing that too. Or maybe a sofa.

    2. I've been sleeping in a recliner in my family room. I have books in other rooms, but the family room has the most with built-in shelves and a huge bookcase.
