I guess it looks funny for me to say I went on a Library date yesterday….especially when you realize that the date was primarily me and the books. I have a very deep love for books; to someone who is not a fan of books, it would probably seem very comical how much I love them. I have plenty of unread books around my house but every once in awhile, I just get this strong urge to go to library and pick out something completely new and different to read. And the fact that there’s a time limit in which to read them? It’s exciting to me! In school when you were assigned a book that was rather boring, time limits pressured you and brought you dread BUT with a library book that I really want to read? It ensures I will read it in the time allotted and it gives me this sort of freebie where I can say, “I got to read now, my book is due soon!”

Today I checked out 6 books from the library and put one on hold that they had new but hadn’t put on the shelves yet. All, except one were by authors I had never read anything by. I think it will be a fun change to read someone completely new to me and see what I think. The books I got were:

  1. The Lover’s Dictionary: A novel-David Levithan (7 day check-out)
  2. My Teenage Werewolf-Lauren Kessler(7 day)
  3. Burn-Ted Dekker & Erin Healey(7 day)
  4. The Unknown Terrorist-Richard Flanagan(3 week check-out)
  5. Step on a Crack-James Patterson(3 week)
  6. Girls: A Novel-Lori Lansens(3 week)
  7. Bossy Pants-Tina Fey(on hold)

So I have 3 books to read within 7 days…..PLUS the long anticipated Hit List by Laurell K. Hamilton that hits store this coming Tuesday because whatever I am reading, I will put down to read that first! I wonder if I will be able to finish everything in time, do you think I can do it?

After the library, me and my husband went out for lunch at Chili’s. It was special for us because we don’t have the money to go out at a nice restaurant that often so we decided to splurge. It was fun going on a date with my husband and the food was delicious. I had enough left over for supper too! Always nice when you can make two meals out of one, huh? 🙂

So I had a great day yesterday and now I’m off to read some more! Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
