I read something a while back that suggested taking kids to the library to give them the experience of complete and utter bounty- no matter what your budget, there is the possibility of taking home WHATEVER book they want. I love that. I so know that feeling- my mom’s only rule for how many books we could take from the library on our weekly trips was that we had to be able to carry them.
I got to go to the library today by myself (well, with Tiny, but she was in the stroller and not begging to go to the kids’ area, so in effect, by myself) while Z was at our little preschool today. It was so nice. I love being able to just wander and let books call out to me. Today I ended up with 6:
Mr. Fooster Traveling on a Whim by Corwin and Frazier
The Best Buddhist Writing 2008
Why New Orleans Matters by Tom Piazza
Ms. Hempel Chronicles by Sarah Shun-lien Bynum
Flappers and the New American Woman: Perceptions of Women from 1918 through the 1920s by Catherine Gourley
Any predictions on which I’ll actually finish before they’re due back again? Keep in mind I’ve been reading my current book for what seems like the last 6 months.
We ended up going back to the library after preschool and naps, Z had a really rough day- two (lightly) skinned knees and lots of crying. She got three books, which is my limit for her, because I can’t keep track of more than that. When she’s older and/or when the library ceases to have late fines, she can get out more.
What are you reading? Which book do you think I should read first?
