At the risk of sounding like a true nerd, I’ll admit it – I enjoy spending afternoons at the library! Being surrounded by the scent of old books feels like fresh air to me and I can be surprisingly productive about my reading habit.
Yesterday I scored a copy of The Help for $0.50 that’s still in great shape and I walked away quite pleased with my purchase. Tonight I might be leaving with Where the heart is in my bag. I’ve seen both movies and the books sound incredibly promising.
Another thing about my local library: I see small kids running around everywhere and elderly citizens reading quietly at every corner – a real, lovely community. Crisp fall afternoons that feel rather cozy.
