While she was playing with the other kids, I picked up a couple of board books for her and grabbed a couple of books for Alex, who was still at school. One was Miss Nelson is Missing. If you haven’t read that book…well. It might be too late for you. Then I saw The Library, by Susan Stewart. It had a girl with a wagon full of books on the cover. That was good enough for me.
The Library is about a girl that loves to read and doesn’t do anything else. She grows up and buys a house and fills it with books. Then one day she can’t fit any more books in the house. So she donates the house and all the books to make a library and moves into a little place with a friend. They drink tea and read books.
I want to be her when I grow up. Except with Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.
