This week is not about quilting, though. Since I'm also a librarian, I have a couple of boards that have to do with books, bookmarks, libraries, etc. I am a bibliophile.
These first photos are all about unusual bookshelves. If you've visited my Pinterest site, you may have noticed that all of my board titles consist of two words separated by a comma. It's just part of my English teacher gimmick, so indulge me, please.
Alas, every inch of wall is covered with a full-out stuffed bookshelf, so it's a no-go for BNTHS.
Ever wanted to visit a public library in a different city? This country girl loves going to big-city libraries! But I've not been to many, unfortunately.
Dragging our boys through museums sapped all my dragging abilities and, now that they are grown, we're dragging grandchildren. A museum or two and, on weekends, at least one church service and we're on the road back to Evergreen.
Thanks to Pinterest, I can visit every major public library in the civilized world. It's not the same as being there in person, of course, but it's better than never visiting.
One of the joys of my life is reading, and I am grateful to whomever taught me to read as a child. I cannot remember a time when I was not a reader. My parents both were. Daddy had his newspaper, and mom always loved a book during nap time.
Surprisingly, though, I don't have any memories of their reading to me. It's as if I was born able to read, and my preferred entertainment was always at my disposal.
Now here's a bit of craziness: I was finished with this post... done, I tell you, when Richard pointed out that today is Thursday. What?
What happened to Wednesday? Then I remembered, I spent it at the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party. (I'm in the J's.) I hope you've entered my giveaway of a quilted Christmas stocking (and a few surprises) and that you visit the other blogs to enter their giveaways.
