Books, books, books

I got a library card today! My first in years.

I wanted to read The Bone Collector because a friend kept recommending it. Mom was going to get it, but I found myself near the library today on my walk with Claren, so despite Claren's muddy butt (she was playing outside pre-walk) we went.

I asked the librarian for a card and asked him to fill out the form for me, then I looked for my book.

Seeing all the books just made me feel so good. Unfortunately, Jeffery Deaver books were on the top two shelves so I couldn't find the one I wanted. I had to snag another librarian, who grabbed it for me.

In good news, Deaver was near the opening of the aisle so I did not run over any books. I did, however, knock off one of those metal thingies that they use to hold up books when the shelf isn't full. But progress!

P.S. Not sure about the book.

It's always good to have a library card!

She seemed more grossed out by the wee free men on the cover of the Terry Prachett book.

I like it!

I looooove books!!! I get the same feeling in libraries -- limitless possibility and worlds just waiting to be discovered! I'm such a nerd 8-)

As long as we embrace our nerdiness ...

Nerdiness = fully embraced! We should make badges for ourselves -- like honorary scout badges for nerds. :)
