It is definitely not a lie. I like big books and small books, old books and new books, print books and ebooks, kids books and adult books, fiction and nonfiction. If it is readable at all then I pretty much am happy. The one standout used to be comics, I was ok with them I just didn’t love them. The reading challenge I have been doing has changed that. I don’t do a lot of audiobooks. I guess I need to get better at them since several of the books I want from the library only come that way.
Being asked to be a guest librarian at my favorite challenge is a huge honor to me! I was asked what my favorite book is, and although like many readers it is generally hard to pick just one, I do have an all-time favorite. Winnie the Pooh has been close to my heart as long as I can remember. I even disappeared while a neighbor was watching me as a child to go look at the book in my closet back at home sending them into a small panic. My nephew and I had a discussion about the characters and which was my favorite and I said answered “Well, Pooh” one of the reasons is because he doesn’t leave anyone out, all of the archetypes in the hundred acre woods are his friends and he knows they all have something he can learn from and likes it best when they are themselves. My nephew then said, “Auntie you really are Pooh.” I think that is one of the best compliments ever!
Summer vacation is coming to an end and I have been playing a bit of hookey. Between getting to spend some quality time with my nephew, and reorganizing my work area I think that I am ready for summer to come to an end. Well, in some ways, yes and in some ways no, but at least I don’t feel like it is the worst thing ever.
Swoon! I would love to have this in my home, as well as someone to keep it dusted and tidy for me. I am absolutely a book lover, always have been and always will be. I recently had a conversation with a librarian about why I am a die-hard library user and even better have moved to ebooks at that. I am a read it once and done kind of girl, so unless it is a cookbook I don’t need to have it after I read it. I don’t have to dust shelves of books and keep them tidy, and there is never enough bookshelf space anyway. I don’t have to pack and try to move boxes of books, which no one ever wants to do, they are so heavy! I also get a bit of a thrill out of trying to finish books by the due date or anticipating books on my hold list. The number one reason, however, is that I just can’t afford my reading habit if I were to have to buy all of the books I read and want to read. No matter where I have lived I have always felt a little bit more at home when I get to know the local library.
OK, I made two of this card as I normally do but only one made it. When I went to stamp the sentiment on the card I managed to turn it upside down and it didn’t fit correctly but I didn’t notice until after I had stamped it. Stupid mistake, but it is why I tend to make two cards so that at least one is still useable.
