I still go to the library. I know, it’s very 1991 of me. I buy any books I can get my hands on from the $2 rack at Half Price books, but that doesn’t include many good ones. So when I want to read something worthwhile, I hit up the library.
I checked out five books. The librarian gave me a judgmental once over as if to say, “no way in hell you’re reading all these in the three week time frame.” So what if I had One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest checked out for six weeks and still only finished 80 pages? That book was awful. She thinks she knows me and that I will have to renew these. So now I’m on a personal quest to prove her wrong.
Five books in three weeks. Well, 2 1/2 now. And yes, three of them are children’s chapter books so it should be pretty damn easy. But perhaps you’re forgetting that I work a full-time job where I don’t take lunch breaks and each night I spend an hour walking and I have to watch my tv shows, too. There just isn’t enough time in my life to read books. But for the next 2 1/2 weeks, I’m going to make some damn time. I’ll show that bitch with her glare what I think about snobs.
