My local library shared this clip on their facebook page. I love it, and so thought I would share it with you too.
My favourite bit? Cookie Monster of course.
My second favourite bit? The beautiful filing systems with the little vanilla cream cards all neatly lined and written on and dated, oh how I miss those. Gosh the places those books went and the adventures they must have had. Part of my love of library books was seeing where the book I was reading had been, and wondering about the person that read before me, did they like the book as much as I did, or more? Who was their favourite character and why? Did they read this book snuggled under the covers or spread out under a huge shady tree? I wonder what happened to all those little cards with years of information recorded on them? Did they end up in landfill? I think they would make beautiful papers for bookmarks, scrapbooking, bookcoverings, cards and any other type of paper decorating that could be thought up. ohhhhh a little set of bunting to hang, or made into flowers, stars and cranes to decorate a table or Christmas tree. *sigh*
I have just finished 'The Joy Luck Club' by Amy Tan. Love it, absolutely loved it. Was sad to see I had read the last page, I wanted to know more about these amazing women. I can finally get a copy of the movie now, as I don't like to watch the movie before reading the book. Woo Hoo!
So what are you reading right now?
Thanks so much for stopping by my place today - have a wonderful day at your place.
