Thanks to Stacey, Betsy, Beth, Kathleen, Deb, Melanie, and Lanny
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
and for nurturing our writing lives.
Some of my favorite emails come with this subject line: Hold available notification! It's always good news when a book I've waited for is available. In the wee hours of this morning, one of those emails arrived. It's always with a sense of anticipation that I click on the email because I never know which book I've been longing for has finally arrived. Today it's two! The Word Collector by Peter H. Reynolds and Tell Me More : Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I'm Learning to Say by Kelly Corrigan (I actually read grown-up books occasionally, but they are never the ones that I've been longing for. And yes, I know I ended that sentence with a preposition.)
I love our library system and the technology that makes requesting a book so easy. I love that my library is close enough to make stops by there several times a week. And yes, last week I picked up Love by Matt de la Pena from my holds shelf!
