I love the library. I could spend hours there. Just browsing the shelves, sitting in the comfy chairs and reading, finding books for the boys. It's just a great, quiet place to be. We take the boys to the library every week for story time and they love it and look forward to it. They get to pick out a handful of books each and we read to them every night. I just love it.
And ya know, I may or may not check out a million books each week. I currently have 22 books checked out. And we only get 2 weeks to read them. So... the renew option on my account gets a serious work out. :)
Check out some of my library haul. I won't post the descriptions for all of these, or else we'll be here all day. But click on the links and it will take you to the Goodreads synopsis of each book. :) [And I apologize in advance for my crappy cell phone quality photos.]
