I am that girl or was. I had a huge house filled with bookcases and stacks of books. Thousands and thousands of them. I could have opened a used book store.
Now I read online…..
I first got my library card when I went to the library with my dad. I wanted to know why he could have one and I couldn’t. I remember saying “I took care of them….Didn’t ruin them. ” I also told my dad that I remembered we had to return them before the weekend. I also reminded him, that he had forgotten. (It was written on the calendar.There was also a sticker of a book.)
The librarian told me I was too young. Then she thought about it and decided I was the exception. (She also knew my parents would make sure I would always follow through). I walked out the door with a library card ….With my name on it. I was 6 or 7. Now a days many libraries libraries will add a child on their parent’s account. It teaches responsibility .
I also love the pictures here. First posted by Rosemarie Urquico. Then shared by Myths Of The Mirror and then I saw it on Marquessa’s Blog.
I do miss reading a BOOK. Reading online is NOT the same thing.
I saved this the first time I heard it – a fun piece by Rosemarie Urquico. Enjoy!
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
