Local Library

I went to our local Library yesterday.. just to see what all they had to offer.. I took a few snapshots while there.  They had some nice pictures when you first come in…

Then they remind you that you ARE in a Library!

Lots of books… duh

Strangely enough I wasn’t stimulated, which shocked me.. so I left and went to the Friends of the Library where I find my dollar books!

I have been super good lately (compared to what I’m not sure).  But I have been not getting so much “just because” I can.

I went all through the usual areas that I look in, and my last stop was by the sci-fi, which many of you will know I am not a reader of sci-fi… I’d rather watch the movies lol.. but..some sci-fi crosses the boundaries into fantasy fiction… and my absolute favorite books do just that… “PERN”!

….and just lookie what I found!  A Doubleday hard bound copy of Harper Hall !!! All three  books in one edition!! And in really good condition!

I was thrilled no end to grab that puppy right up!

I wish I could say I like the Doubleday version, but I have their one of the first trilogy too and the printing is smaller than it is in paperbacks!!   Not good for aged people like myself, even with glasses!  The printing in this one is at least dark which helps tremendously.. and no matter what I am happy to have a hard bound copy!

So my excursion to the Library still produced something good.. and that was the fact  that I couldn’t go past The Friends of the Library without stopping! lol… yeah me~!
