It will come as no surprise to anyone that I love to read. It therefore should come as no surprise that I love libraries, which allow me to read more books than I could ever afford to buy myself. Also, we don’t have enough room in our house for all of those books. 🙂
Which means I am grateful that libraries exist, that we support them with taxes (and by attending book sales), and that I often have time to visit and pick up books.
This past week, for example, I went looking for research materials for brainstorming a project. I got books on cadavers, tea, gems, musical instruments, the Silk Road — oh, and a few books off the new fiction shelf as well as a couple of trade comics. Thus, my deep gratitude to them. (As an aside, can someone explain to me why fiction anthologies get shelved as nonfiction?)
What are you grateful for this week?
