Library Love is a recurring post in which I share the weekly bounty from my public libraries.
The Boy received a plethora of books as Christmas gifts in December. How many of those would you say that he’s read by now? I’ll tell you: Zero. Zip. Nada. Can you believe this? I listened to his protests of love for nonfiction and made most of the selections nonfiction books – oh, he showed so much excitement at the time, but not one bit of interest now. What’s up with that? Thus, he has been reading strictly fiction so far this year. Hmph. Go figure. Not that I’m complaining, per se, because as long as he’s reading, I’m happy. What made me even happier this week is that he specifically requested that I select some books for him – normally he moans and groans when I do this (although he always winds up happy in the end). I had a lot of fun choosing his reading for the next couple of weeks; I had just as much fun choosing my own!
