Library love

21 Mar

IMG_2072I’m only a few posts into returning to blogging and I’m already falling behind, but I’m pretty sure moving to a different state, unpacking, and doing boring grown-up things like working on taxes are solid excuses. Also, baby.

But today, a quick post about my first venture to the local library in our new town. Technically it’s my second; the first was to get my library card. Today I went to pick up a book I had put on hold, so naturally I returned home with nine books. I don’t know what it is, but my eyes are always bigger than my stomach (for lack of a better phrase) when it comes to the library. It probably helps that they’re free to check out. Combined with an unrealistic optimism about the amount of time I can squeeze in for reading, and you have a book checking-out fiend.

Fortunately in this trip it was mostly the kind of books that I’ll skim, rather than a novel that I need to commit to. I have a few things on the brain I’m eager to research: gardening on our new patio, preparing to buy a house (no news yet, very much in the research phase!), and cooking healthfully for baby.

I even restrained myself. I saw a new title tantalizingly propped on one of the new-fiction shelves, A Highly Unlikely Scenario. I have a million other novels I want to read, so I’ll have to add it to the list.

The only sad thing about my adventure is that I didn’t have my camera to capture the beautiful aaah-spring-is-finally-here buds I saw blossoming along the trail as Little L and I walked to the library. And that means no pictures of baby either, alas. Just one reason I am increasingly longing for a smartphone. One of these days… for now, I fully intend to spend the weekend perusing through my library books.

    Glad to know all those trips to the library and years of bedtime stories paid off to help you become a library-loving bookworm girl! 🙂
