books on books. on books.

today our errand running took us across town.
today was library day.
charlie heads straight for the mini computer.
gavin always - right to the books on tape.
and i start my hunt.
today we hit the children's book jackpot.

our book crate is full to the brim.
i remember being lovely little lindsay 
and my cathy would let us fill a laundry basket.

  1. Oh, I love that memory more than anything! It goes way back. Gram always took me to the library. Books matter. I still hunt up the local library wherever I travel to just because. Filmy jacket library books smell so right.

  2. Those books from our past...we always want to pass them to our children of the future. Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing
