Shrublette + library = Cute overload.
Mat + library = OMG the house is full of books!

We took the small one and signed her up at the library today. It was awesome. And she got a little card that they will stamp if she reads two books a month, and if she fills the card she gets a prize. She has already read the two books we got out today. And I have read two of the three I got out and am going to start on the third in the bath.

YAY books!

We were talking to the librarian, and she was like "my house is full of books!" and we were like "our house is full of books too! Books ftw!" and she was like "my husband, he says to me 'why you wanna buy books when you work in a sodding library' and I told him 'Because they're books!" and we LOLed...

That is a really good story.

There has been a lot of stuff about Andy Burnham and how libraries need ot become internet cafes.

When I was a kid, I loved the local library, and I would spend a lot of time there.

So three cheers for the younger generation - at least your representative!

Yay for reading Shrublette!

How do you read a book in the bath? Even when I was still living at home (while we had the big bath) and in my second place in Nuremberg I never dared take a book into the bath out of fear of getting it wet, especially if it was a book that didn't belong to me.

Books get wet. Then they dry out again.

It helps to stick to paperbacks and try to be careful to not actually get them wet—SB has a little tray thing that you can rest the book on. And a wineglass. And a candle.

You can tell where her priorities are...

The Llibrary=very very cool.

Plus? My old library in Devon had a limit of 4 books at once. Exeter uni was 6. So I put half my selection back on the shelves.

At the desk I asked what the limit was.

20.

I'll be taking Shrub back later in the week—they had a big chunk of Charles Stross and China Mieville, and I didn't even go upstairs to history.

Heh, I saw that tray. My dad used to be a chain smoker and built an ashtray he could clamp onto the wall grip so he could smoke while soaking in the bath.

Very cool library!

Mia loves the library as well but she gets upset that she can't take out every book she wants and keep them forever.

Ooo, while I'm here; I can't remember if you've ever said if Shrubby has read Where the Wild Things are - Maurice Sendak but if she hasn't, then beg, borrow, steal a copy. Best childrens book ever.

Yaaaaay! I'm really looking forward to the day when I can do the same with Georgia. I could probably do it now, but she'd rather eat books than read them, so we'll stick to her ever growing collection for the time being.

Baby books are awesome! My girls' favorites are ones that make noise, require you to make noise (the sillier the better), and require both of you to make silly gestures. The second-best ones are those that have two out of three of those features. They are 12 and 15 now and never stopped reading.

Sandra Boynton rocks.

Books are wonderful, aren't they? So many books, so little time...

I've got so many books still to read that I haven't joined the library here yet, and I've been here just over 3 years * crimson shame *

Libraries are indeed wonderful things. I used to love going to the library as a child and a teenager, where I developed my pratchett habit

These days I buy books though, I should support the libraries more but I like to own books

That's wonderful! Our local libraries are pretty small, but I live in a bookstore, so that's kept me supplied.

books are wonderful, I've got stacks I've not read. the problem with my library is the sell off the old stock and I end up with a load of books I've bought as well as lent.

The Local Council uses the library as a local office, two birds with one stone lovely. When I'm waiting I can scan the shelves.

You can't have enough books, fact.

Moo.
