Visiting the public library to check out books has always been one of my favorite things to do. In fact I have library cards at 4 local, city libraries. (That is probably against the law…)
On a recent trip, quite by accident- because I COULDN’T SEE – I selected books from this section.
Let me just say that a new world explodes when you open a LARGE PRINT book.
Mercy. I then began to speed read. It’s hard not to.
While in New Normal earlier this week, I finished Ruth Reichl’s Comfort Me With Apples , which is a wonderful autobiographical tale about her life as a restaurant critic in Berkley in the 60’s.
Yesterday as I yearned for something else to read , I thought again of my Amazon shopping cart, now a mile long with a bottom line total of a million dollars . No, I decided, I am not doing that.
The quest began.
I visited one of the 4 libraries I mentioned and found out that they could order this for me-
I got a call the next day that it was in. I picked it up , ordered Gilead by Marilynne Robinson and because I am a more is more person/collector, I went to library #2 the next day , and they located this at another library.
While driving home, I started thinking about the Tara Frey blogging book , and it became very clear.
I am in over my head.
