Happy National Book Lover’s Day!
In looking back at this blog, there are just over fifty mentions of libraries. I won’t attempt counting the mentioning of books.
I could list my favorite book-related sites.(The Book Reporter, Powell’s, Tattered Cover, Unshelved)
I could mention the Big Reveal at last. I could encourage you to find a fun book group fast.
I could share a video that will hopefully make you smile or cheer. I could ask “What have you read so far this year?”
Today I’ll end it with this note. May you get a chance to fill, then go through your full book tote!
Better than Birthday Cake
So many books, so little time!
Seems to be my fortune, my luck – how sublime.
Still have the first library book set from when I was three.
May have added a few more, 10, 20… well, over 50.
True, time constraints make it hard
For me to frequently, physically use my library card.
On any given day, I’d rather be lost in the pages
Of Austen, Asimov, Tey, Twain, Francis, Chekov and others through the ages
Thank goodness for audiobooks, music to the ears –
Allows me to get through more books in these busy years.
King, Rowling, Shakespeare, and Christie’s works translate best
Then again, give me a great reader instead and – wait, I digress.
And now I’ll confess, I like my tablet, yes – it allows me to access more.
To find something new in the realms of sci-fi, poli-sci, poetry, other works to explore.
Award winners, anonymous works, amazing wordsmiths however you define them,
Grab a book: paperback, hardback, thick, thin – whatever the hook.
A book, the right book, in hand is the best, richest gem.
