In other news, I’m still working on my reading list, which seems to be expanding by the second. I finished The Hobbit this week. It occurs to me that I have my own hobbit-like tendencies: I always like to know where my next meal is coming from (and that it will be delicious) and the thought of a nice chair by a nice fire and tea at 4 o’clock is…well, I can’t really ask for much more than that. On the other side, I do like to get out of the hobbit-hole on an adventure now and then. Though I still like to know when that next meal will be.
And now, for some dismal news. Our little branch library is closing – hopefully just for the summer, but it all seems very unclear. Don’t get me wrong, the main branch is positively lovely and I have nothing against it whatsoever, it’s just that…I LOVE OUR BRANCH LIBRARY. When we first drove up to our house and I saw that the library was so close, Tom said “this house just got cuter for you, didn’t it?” He was right. Libraries are a wonderful resource for the community. I know that the economy has hit libraries hard, but in an economy like this libraries are even more valuable. So please go and visit your local library this weekend. Take out lots of books. Smile at your librarian. Get thee to it.
