Book Love Found


Last week both of the kids dropped by our local library at different times for the used book sale.  I decided not to go, I have so so many books and it would have been the only stop made that day.  I also am left with the car without working AC, you know I hate to be hot even for book shopping.  When they left I said "if you see anything I would like, buy it".

My daughter was one of the first customers on her way to work.  The hard core book shoppers.  I'm sure they've been planning for weeks to be there when the library opened.  I cannot recall what she bought for herself.  But she did buy me something.  I've mentioned a couple times that I would like a book of Emily Dickinson poems.  I was NOT going to pay full price-that's just silliness.

Have you noticed that when you want something or are in hot pursuit, it's never to be found! I have that problem with books and shoes.  So I quit looking.  Yet my daughter remembered that I wanted a poem collection and she FOUND it!!  Lucky lucky me.

Even though I have too many books (is there such a thing) I have managed to make room on my selves for one more book.

  10. There is NEVER such a thing as too many books....just like you can never have too much yarn or too many pairs of shoes. Just saying.

  11. Agreeing with Melissa. There is never such a thing as too many books ( or yarn. I don't have the room for many shoes, but books and yarn...YES!)
    What a sweet daughter you've raised.
