I am a little embarrassed to admit that I have not been to my local library in years and so when I took the kids last week to help stimulate their brains, I had to renew my card.
And then I looked around and the shelving had totally changed – which was kind of cool, yay new shelves! And kind of wha? because there was more empty space than books.
Hopefully the lack of available titles is because so many other local parents had already stocked up their kid’s reading lists.
Oldest Daughter was off at drivers ed class (omg omg no no no she’s a baby what madness is this??!!) so she didn’t get a book 😦
Boy didn’t see anything that caught his attention, but almost frothed at the mouth when I pointed out a super cool looking Zorro graphic novel.
Little One picked out a cute picture book and I wanted to hit her over the head with it because despite her nickname she is NOT little enough to stick with picture books – but reading is reading so – she brought home the very pretty and entertaining ‘Chester’ by Ayano Imai.
And I couldn’t walk out of there with nothing for me, so I have ‘Jellicoe Road’ by Melina Marchetta – which so far I am finding to be disjointed and confusing.
