One of the luxuries I enjoy about summer is reading...especially since our evenings are light until ten pm and I can afford to stay up late reading since I'm on break. I just finished reading Defending Jacob and have started The Quilter's Legacy (of the Elm Creek Quilt novel series by Jennifer Chiaverini) I also visited our local library today and checked out: Three Women on the Water's Edge to read next. Which found me wondering as I walked home from the library...
...how do you read your books?
I mean, do have a kindle? Buy new? Buy used? Trade? Check out from your local library?
As you come to know me, you'll learn I'm a very practical person. Thus, the only series I collect are the Elm Street Quilt Novels...as my mom gifts them to me. Other than that, I love the feel of an old fashion book in my hand when I read and usually borrow, trade or check out books. I love the dusty ol' smell the one I picked up from the library has. It's one of those smells that reminds me of being young...my fingers searching though the old card catalog hoping to find a great adventure to bring home to read! Funny to think I now use one of those card catalogs for ribbon storage! See:
Please do comment and share how you read your books and why...curious minds want to know...and who knows, maybe this old dog will learn some new tricks in the world of reading??
