Today was National Book Lovers Day.
There is no question that I am a book lover. I have quite a few books in my house 🙂
Of course, part of it is because I come from a family of book lovers. I like this picture of my Dad with two of his siblings. He is holding a book while posing for this picture at the farm.
Of course, since I am a book lover I had to find a copy of the book my Dad was holding. It was not easy as very few libraries had it in their collection. See: The Secret of the Cave
When I was little my Mom would tell me to go outside and play. I found that I could ride my trike and read at the same time.
Here of course was my natural position when inside. I would prop my feet up on the coffee table and read a book. In this picture I have my little cousin Melaine sitting beside me. You can also see a couple more books tucked back behind the blanket on the couch.
In the picture above I am reading one of The Happy Hollisters books. I tried to read all of them when I was a kid, but never did find them all.
Now, that is not a problem as I own the complete series of books. I slowly hunted them all down at used book stores. I could have easily gone on-line and bought them, but it was much more fun to find them on my own. A lot cheaper too, unless you factor in all the time for hunting 🙂
I am also thinking about our board meeting of the Tracy Friends of the Library last night. We work together to help support our local library by running a book sale and helping promote literacy in our community. Another way that I can share my love for books.
Of course, I could ramble on about books all night. However, I will simply close this with a picture I took of a sculpture at the Livermore outlet mall.
