Day 188- Bookworm

I’ve always loved to read- and am a pretty eclectic reader. I belong to a book club- and have recently started an online group within goodreads.com. One of the joys of retirement is the luxury of reading in the daytime.

My local library is one of my most favorite places.  What’s not to love? Thousands of books- and they are all free- unless you forget to return them on time. . .   😦  I still buy books on the kindle, but buy a lot less “real” books now.  It’s mostly either kindle books or the library.

I got an e-mail today that a book I had requested was in, so off I went to the library- where I picked up the book I had ordered, plus another one I spotted as I went in. Today I took my camera- and took a quick photo in the fiction section.

  1. Nice shot. I love the composition and depth of field. “The Tin Drum” (far right, top shelf) looks familiar. I’m pretty sure I haven’t read it, but I think the book itself was on my parents’ bookshelf.

  4. I don’t read as often as I would like, but I do enjoy the library.
