I love books

It's probably pretty obvious to everyone by now, but I do love books. In my dream home, one day, there will be a library. Even though, I have to admit, I also own a Kobo, nothing beats a book.

You can imagine my joy when I met a real live librarian (who was awesome, by the way) who asked me if I would like to come rummage through some of the books she has to weed out from her library.

Would I ever?!?

I squee'd with sheer joy and was ready to barge in immediately. She's the librarian at a private school here in Montreal and was getting ready for the new school year. I went to visit on Friday and was tempted to take all of the books home. I tried clinging on to the last fleeting scraps of sanity and only picked the ones I knew I could use (and maybe a couple I just absolutely loved...)

I came home with 45 children's books and an assorted pile of lose pages... These are mostly from the 60s and 70s, but there are a few newer ones in the mix as well. They are the books that have suffered over the years (loose pages, binding coming undone) or the ones that no one has checked out in years. They were looking for a new home and how could I say no...

I'm so excited and can't wait to start using these! Stay tuned for pictures once I get the work properly started!
