I *heart* the library. I don’t know, it’s like it’s got energy. I just think about all the good stories that are floating around in there waiting to be read. I think it’s an exciting place to be. If you’re not a reader, I know you can’t understand this. But books are friends to me. I have books that are so good I don’t want to read them again–it’s too bittersweet.
Today I went to the library and got 2 books. One is a book I’ve seen at the bookstore several times but never picked up. It’s called Firstborn by Robin Lee Hatcher. I think it’s about adoption and reconnecting with biological parents. I don’t like to read the back of a book because they tell too much. I like being surprised. It’s like when a good movie is coming out, I don’t watch the preview. Nowadays, they show every stinkin’ scene!
The second book I randomly picked up. It’s Gap Creek by Robert Morgan. I saw one of his other books and it looked good. But there was a byline under his name that said, “Best selling author of Gap Creek”. So, I thought I should read the award-winning one first, you know? When I checked out the librarian said, “This book is going to wear you out.” I replied, “Is that a good thing?” She said she loved the book and she will never complain about doing the dishes again. I guess I’ll get it after I read the book.
Have you read these books? Whad’ya think? Anything else to reccomend? I’ll let you know what I think when I finish.
In other news, Lydia’s nose has been wiped 5,354 times today. I babysat my 2 year old neice who took a 3 hour nap while she was here. My dh didn’t answer my calls for 2 hours. I watched the one hour American Idol results show in 10 minutes (oh, how I love my tivo!). It rained ALL day. Fun times.
