Do you use your local library? Our local library was recently under threat of closure, but thankfully it has been awarded a stay of execution. I love our library, though I admit I haven't used it for over a year. In the past few years the library has moved from an old building on the flat part of the village to a new building attached to a new school but it is up a steep hill if you go the quickest way. I suspect that this hill has put a lot of people off of visiting the library. It is a shame as it is lovely in every other way.
I had stopped visiting the library because my lovely Mum threatened me with awful things if I kept getting library books rather than reading some of my own books. When I saw the library was under threat I was determined to start going back.
This morning, Dave and I wheeled up there to re-join for me, and to join for him. The ladies who work there were so happy to have 2 more members. I was happy to get 4 new books and Dave took out an audio book to see if he could still enjoy books even those his eyes don't focus enough to read them. I just need to order him some ear phones so I don't have to listen too!!
Am I sad that I was uber excited to choose my books...... don't answer that one.
I have started with "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern. Have you read it? I am 4 pages in and I already know that I am going to enjoy it.
