Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB that asks you to muse about one of several “bookish” questions… or, you can just ramble on about anything you like that pertains to books! You can join in by clicking the graphic above. Go ahead–it’s fun!
Here’s my musing for this week–
One of the local used bookstores in my area is having a Labor Day Sale this holiday weekend—20% off everything in the store! On Saturday I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to finally take in the books I’d culled during my last book weeding session a couple of months ago, so I loaded up the backseat of my car in the morning and took them in. I dropped off 5 bags of books and showed a great deal of restraint by only purchasing five, so I viewed the trip as a complete success!
To make the morning even more bookish, I stopped off at the library on the way home to return some books and to pick up several more that were waiting for me on the hold shelf. (Bonus bookish experience–story time was ending just as I entered the library. I was surrounded by a flood of tiny readers who couldn’t wait to show their parents the bookish craft they’d just made. There just isn’t much that can make me happier than seeing children who are excited to be at the library!) When I got back home I had a full armload of books plus a few more, and to me that’s always such a great feeling—so many possibilities!
I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon doing chores as quickly as possible—and then spent the late afternoon and evening reading. All in all, a wonderful bookish day!
How about you? Have you enjoyed a bookish day—or afternoon—or morning—recently? Please share!
