Through a string of links from here to here I found a neat survey on books. I love books. I buy way to many and it might take me years to read them. I can’t pass up a sale, a good plot line or a topic I’m interested in. You can start to see my problem can’t you.
One of the greatest things I look forward to after grad school is reading for fun again. Although I do sneak in one or two here and there.
So here is the survey:
Total number of books I own: Way to many to count. I want a library someday.
Last book I bought: Stuart Little (For Kayla) The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women: A Portable Mentor (For Me)
The last book I read: Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities
Books that I read over and over as a kid: Ramona; Adventures of Frog and Toad; Aesop’s Fables; The Secret Garden; Little House on the Prairie Series; Anne of Green Gables; Pippi Longstocking
I was reminded of these books as I went into Barnes and Noble with Kayla. I wanted to encourage her love of books by buying her a couple. It was fun to go go through the aisles and see a bunch of old friends. Books were my refuge and escape as a kid. I remember more about them that much of my childhood. My favorite thing was a trip to the library – remember bookmobiles. I LOVED them.
