My plan for the night

I love being a library science student. I love having a library that lets patrons check out 100 books at a time.

I went to the library tonight for my Library Materials for Children class, and for my Storytelling class, and I came home with two huge bags full of books. I got just a bit carried away. I have to read The Book of Three for Library Materials for Children, and I ended up grabbing The Black Cauldron and The Castle of Llyr as well. I'm sure that next time I'm at the library I'll be picking up The High King and Taran, Wanderer.

My plan for this evening is to sit and read as much as one can possibly read in one evening all while drinking as much tea as one can possibly drink in one evening. I'm quite happy with life right now. You wanna see half my stash? This is all the books from one of my bags of books ...
(and one last thing - I cut my hair today. I'm sure you're all interested, but I'm slightly traumatized by the shortness. I mean, I know it's only five inches, but that's almost half a foot - and half a foot, as we all know, is right up there next to being a foot! And a foot, as we all know, is dangerously close to being 5 feet - and when you get all the way up to five feet you're just 7 and a quarter inches away from how tall I am! So if you put it that way, it really was quite a bit of hair I got chopped off today. Lets see if the husband notices!)

Hiya - I linked to you from a friends blog where you left a comment. Clicked the link because of the librarian bit of your usernick.

I'm a librarian too (a few hours away in Wisconsin, no less). And a huge Firefly fan as well. Oh, and according to the doc's office where I was measured the other day, I'm 5 feet, 7 1/4 inches tall. Are you me? *grin*

Best of luck to you in library school. Being a librarian rocks. (even when you get a bit off track and start down the systems librarian path...)

Marcia - your wish is my command

E - thank you! I'm super excited about the whole librarian thing ... welcome to my blog! If you come back and read this, where is yours? Your profile is hidden so I can't find it!

Howdy, Bud Not Buddy is really funny, and I think I saw Johnny Tremain buried in the back somewhere...I actually found it surprisingly good, didn't think I would like such an oldie that much...as for the others, well, I guess I better get reading too! I've been trying to read this year's Newbery winners, almost done, will be blogging about them soon...

Sorry about the hidden profile. Unfortunately, I'm currently without blog. I just didn't have time to keep up with it, so it has disappeared for the time being. Hopefully I'll get back at it one of these days.

Tunia - I read Johnny Tremain back when I was that age and was disappointed - I think because it was my friend Meg's favorite book. She'd hyped it up so much, but I've just never been one for historical fiction. ::shrugs::

That's ok, E. Whenever you get one, I'll be right there reading it!
