For the Love of Reading

Last weekend, while running errands, I made a sudden, quick turn onto Aberdeen instead of continuing on Beechnut. (I tend to make a lot of "quick turns"--just ask Hubby). In that split second, I had decided to check out the city library for some interesting reads. (and you thought I was exciting ;-).)

The building was glorious--big and new, just like the one in Marietta. I walked in.

It's been many many years since I received my first library card in the Cobb County system, and I had never gotten one without my mom signing for it. I walked in, very confused, and tried to find where to get one. It only took talking to 2 people, then once I was done, I headed to the shelves to scour the bindings.

Only the place was much smaller on the inside--there were only 4 or 5 shelves of fiction books. *sigh* Maybe next time I'll find that copy of Pride and Prejudice. Or I'll have to make another sudden quick turn to find another, bigger library.

So did you end up getting anything to read?

I remember going to the library with you in Marietta. The big, two-story one! Ah, good times.
