Reading II

Thank goodness for libraries. My stack as been superseded by my newest library book, The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay. I snuck (yes, better word than "sneaked") a look inside, in between pages of my accounting book editing, and I'm hooked. A Tasmanian girl is whisked to New York City to live, and discovers a bookstore that sounds suspiciously like the Strand of my younger days. That's as far as I've gotten.

And Netflix! I signed up for a temporary free membership, and I have 6 films in my queue. One already arrived: 49 Up, the latest in the Michael Apted series, and since I'm about the age of the participants and I've seen all the previous ones, I'm really looking forward to this one.

I knew and worked with Sheridan Hay, and I have a story -- but not for here...

I have loved libraries since I was a little girl. I can remember getting my first library card and thinking it was the key to the world.
I was right!

snuck and sneaked? I guess one's America and the (correct) ones English! I agree about Libraries, we've been having a campaign to keep our village library open. I even borrow books I don't want to read, just to keep its' activity level up.
