30 Days of Gratitude - Day 13


Today I want to express my gratitude for the written word. I love books. I love physical books that I have stacked on the bedside, coffee table, shelves, etc. and I love my electronic books on my Kindle that I flip through reading off and on. I love going out to Amazon.com and perusing what books they have recommended for me. When I'm in Target, I wander through the book aisle. If I'm at a mall, I will swing through a Barnes and Noble just because. I love books.

Sadly, I do not have a library card because, well, I don't like to read books that have been man-handled by other people. My parents are BIG library book borrowers, which is great for them. I just can't do it. I'm like George Kastanza from Seinfeld who got in trouble for taking a book into the restroom at the book store...I imagine everybody takes their books to the bathroom, especially library books and I just don't want to think about it.

LOL. I need to do libraries. There is one just down the street from you :) I'm not sure the last time I read a book that hadn't been man-handled by a few others!

The only thing I can't stand is if the books are smelly...we both always flip/sniff through the pages to see if they are smokey! I can't check out a book that smells of smoke! Unfortunately, that happens more times than I would like....therefore missing some really good books that I would like to check out!!!
