I have nearly 40 books from the local library on my library card. And it’s not for lack of having my own to read! Just take a look at the 4(!) bookcases in my room!
What’s worse; I have the same amount of books on hold! No, no, don’t feel sorry for me, i won’t allow it! But trust me, I come by it very honestly, it runs in the blood 🙂 When my Mom took my sister and I to the library, we borrowed enough children’s books to max out 3 cards.
Let me tell you another book secret of mine while i’m at it, I keep a cd visor thumb tacked on the wall next to my bed. No, not for cds, for bookmarks, just so they’re handy when i start a new book. yep, I don’t think that was the purpose.
I’ll leave you with a quote i came across recently:
‘When I got [my] library card, that was when my life began.’
