I’m breaking a few of my own rules here. This book was not on my to read list as discussed in a previous blog. I put a hold on it at the library and it happened to be available so I went ahead and checked it out, which is breaking another rule where I’m not supposed to put things on hold while I’ve got other things to read. Oh well.
For any book lover, the library is an absolutely magical place. Rows and rows of books are waiting to be discovered, all yours to borrow for free. The smell of the library is beyond description, and reaches across the boundaries of location, time, and branch. Not only does your local library offer the books you’ve been longing to read, but it also provides the community with events, groups, and amenities like internet access and copy machines because who the fuck has a copier in their house.
