I was really tired when I woke up this morning. It was all Matilda’s fault. I had plans to go with my friend, Jane, to my local library’s book sale. By the time she called me, I was already back in bed and had to force myself to get up and go.
As much as I love books, I don’t read as much as I once did. When I do pick up a book, it takes me forever to finish it. I’ve always been somewhat of a slow reader. Jane is a voracious reader. Whenever we talk, she’s just finished another awesome book and listened to a few more on tape. She makes me want to read more.
The library sale was great. I got an armful of hardback biographies and a couple of interesting books of fiction for $3.12. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Today, I am thankful for the love of books that my parents instilled in me. I am also thankful for Jane for putting me in a room full of books today and making me want to read.
I’ll spend time reading blogs tomorrow. Tonight, I’m going to curl up with this book I found today. The title has already sucked me in.
