What I need around here is one of those carts which librarians use to temporarily house library books before they get shelved. No matter how I try to return my books to their rightful place on the bookshelves when I'm done with them, veritably by the end of the week, I have piles of books by my bedside ... beside and on top of my desk in the office ... by my wing back chair in the family room ... not to mention on any other surface, including the bed, in the guest room cum library.
Too often, even though I head to the shelf with a specific book in mind, I get beguiled...hornswoggled, in fact. My fingers caress the cover of a book I haven't seen in a while... oh my... like a long lost friend, I feel the thrill and the need to reacquaint myself.
Out it hops into my hands... what can I do? They have feelings too, you know... no one likes to feel rejected or ignored. Not even books................ And that's why I need a library cart.
This one is called the Book Truck and it has six shelves.
Yes... now that should be big enough!
I found Charlotte's Web by E.B. White at the library today. I love reading children's books, and summer seems a grand time to kick off one's shoes and pretend they are a youngster again, with the delicious anticipation of long lazy afternoons just perfect for losing one's self in an adventure.
So, what are you reading this week? Am I the only one who needs a library cart at home?
