In an effort to spend as much time as possible outside the apartment before I go back to work, I packed up my son and we headed out to explore our city. (Well, “city” might be overstating it, but I refuse to believe I live in a “town” so let’s just call it a city, shall we?)
While we were out, we stopped at the library. Even though we’ve lived here for almost six months now, I’m just now making my way there.
Due to the current economic conditions, and my desire to save as much money as possible, I signed up for a library card. My habit of buying books is getting to be expensive, and if I’m going to keep up with all the latest bestsellers, I need to take advantage of the fact that there’s a place in our community that let’s you have books. That you can take home. For free. No charge. WHO KNEW?
I really want to begin reading more. The past two years I’ve read a book here or there, but I remember a time in my life where I would regularly plow through a book or two a week. I liked those days. I felt smarter when I was able to sit down with something longer than a magazine article.
But now I’m not sure where to begin. Any suggestions, dear readers? Any books out that made you think, gave you a new perspective on something? Let me know. I’m ready to put my card to good use.
