library books

In Uncategorized on July 7, 2010 at 1:11 am

So you’ve read all those articles telling you what it’s like to walk down an aisle of books in a library – it soothes you, it’s wonderful, it’s all that – yada, yada, yada – all right. So I get it. It is all that – sometimes. Most of the time, it’s just too many books to look at in such little time (ever wonder why library hours are always incovenient, except in summer? Jesus.) and my head kind of ends up with a terrible ache because I tried to look at all the titles sideways.

Sometimes walking in a library is like walking down a store where everything is forbidden. I mean, there are so many books to look at but, admit it, would you really pick up that book about voodoo magic if there was a seventy-year-old woman standing next to you, checking out a book on cute doll-making? And if she were eyeballing you every five seconds? Okay, so maybe that’s not a realistic scenario, but it’s close enough. No one picks out library books about the good stuff because they’re afraid what the lady at the check-out counter might think of them – especially if you’re a regular. Well, if you’re best friends with her I guess it really doesn’t matter.

I’ll have to think about that last one and get back to you on that.
