Day Nine: Reading is sexy



During my first few days at my new job as a librarian I realized in full my reverence for books. I love them! In library school we talked about the chances of libraries becoming extinct because of all the information that can be found on the internet. I am part of the camp that says this will never happen. There is too much joy to be found in physically handling a book and turning its pages. I wrote on my page above, you can always tell my current mood or obsession by the books on my nightstand. On the tags in the pockets on the right I have my current reading list. One of which is the new book Freestyle by the artists of Autumn Leaves. Talk about inpsiring, free-form scrapbook art...love it!


Do you think they'd let me wear this button at the library? :)

your pages are great! I had to go all the way down to the bottom and start from the beginning. It is an interesting journey you are on!
My dear friend has 2 children with autism.. her son will never go beyond a funcitoning 3rd grader and her daughter it is unknown (she is only 6).. but I love and adore both of them. There is something so very special about autisitc children. They touch me in a way other children don't (I missed my calling!) oh and congrats on the job!
