I have an addiction…
The public library.
There. I said it.
Any excuse to go to the library gets me excited.
The librarians probably dread to see my name on the hold shelf because that means I will most definitely call them to see if my materials have arrived.
Before I hit up Red Box, I go to the library.
If I fall in love with the music in a movie, I go to the library.
And now my new habit of being a total fan girl that makes me want to see every movie my favorite actors/actresses have ever been in…
Not to mention all of my leadership stalking (we’ve talked about this before) that causes me to hit up YouTube to check out all of a leader’s public talks and the library to check out all of their books…
At least library materials are free, right? Because I just can’t stay away.
Plus, libraries are just cool places to hang out. Did I mention that most libraries now sell coffee?
You guys think I’m exaggerating about my library addiction, but I go to the library 3-4 days a week.
Here’s my question to you:
Are there any local places you enjoy hanging out?
It’s summer reading time!
My friend Mary gave me 2 sacks full of novels (and a few nonfiction books as well) so I am ready for some serious fun reading.
Even when I wasn’t a student, I mostly read fiction in the summer. There’s something about summer that makes me not want to read anything heavy.
Am I the only one that feels this way?
I thought it would be fun to get some recommendations (you know, in case I’m able to finish all the books on my bottom book shelf).
- What are some books on your summer reading list?
- Any of them graphic novels? I’m trying to give that genre a chance, so I’ve read a couple this year.
- What about nonfiction? Have any good nonfiction reads you think I should throw on my summer reading list?
- Any of your favorite authors releasing books this summer? Any that you’ve already pre-ordered?
- Are you participating in the local library’s summer reading program?
I feel like a citizen of Tulsa now because I have a library card!
The library cooperative here is a good one and I’m pleased with how well it’s run.
It’s amazing how at home I feel in a library. There’s just something about being surrounded by information that makes me happy.
Even as a first time visitor the atmosphere was so inviting.
I’m not doing any heavy duty reading until school starts, but I couldn’t leave without checking out a few books.
Graphic novels are a genre that I haven’t paid much attention to in the past.
I was able to find some books that interested me and they make for such a quick read that I decided to give the genre a chance.
Kudos to the Tulsa County-City Library Cooperative. I look forward to being a patron.
