If you’re a frequent visitor to this blog, you’re probably a lover of books. Did you know that February is National Library Lovers Month?
I was in first grade when I received my first library card. Each week I’d walk to the library (that was back when it was safe for a seven-year-old to walk alone in the city) and return home with an armload of books. I’d lose myself in those books until I returned a week later to check out another armload.
I read so much and so often that my first grade teacher became annoyed that my reading skills had advanced too far ahead of the other students in her class. She actually told my mother not to allow me to go to the library anymore!
Can you imagine?
