Book Lover's Nightmare
Since this is February and the time of year when we celebrate Valentine's Day, I have something to confess. While I love my husband, I also have had a life-long love affair with the books in my life. Don't laugh. Some of you reading this know exactly what I'm talking about.
If you're a book lover, you're in love with your books. You love to touch them. You love to glance at their spines, re-reading and refreshing yourself with the many titles you own. You even love to smell your books and the older the better. Right? You also love to look at your books. Forget about ever getting them read, you just like how they look on your shelves!
Because February is National Library Lover's Month, I'd like to offer a few tips in utilizing your local library which is funded by your tax dollars.
- Start using your library more often and buying less books. The truth is we don't really need to own every title we purchase and the library is an excellent resource for those items.
- Use the internet to request books as well as receive notices when the item you want is ready to be picked up. This will save you a lot of time. You can also renew your items online, cutting down on unnecessary trip to the library.
- If you regularly check out several items at a time, use a canvas bag or milk crate to store your books in while going to and from the library. This will help keep them separated from the items you own as well as keep things organized when sitting in your home or car.
- Remember that the library is more than just books. You can check out movies on DVD and video cassette, get books on tape, check out music CD's as well as view an assortment of resource materials.
A book lover indeed,
A.k.a. Organized Audrey
