As a kid I would love to ride my bike down to the public library and spend hours just sifting through the books.
It was a very small library with not a ton of books, but it was still a magical place where you could be transported to any destination in the world.
Just by opening up a book.
It's back when they had card catalogs. And each book had a little pocket with a borrowers card stuffed in it, so they could keep track of who had borrowed it and when it was due back.
Oh, and the stools that rolled around and then when you stepped on them they planted themselves firmly on the floor!!! I miss those things.
My love of books and libraries has not wavered all these years later. But now with my busy life I don't get to spend hours perusing my local library touching and smelling and geeking out over the books nearly as often as I used to.
But they have this magic place called Amazon that can bring books right to your doorstep.
Here are my picks for . . .
