We Go To Liebebby
Not only did Sam get a new Thomas DVD at the liebebby today, he also checked out the book Applesauce Season since I just made some this week with fresh Vermont apples. We parental units picked Cranford, which has been delightful thus far, to continue with our Downton-inspired obsession with period pieces. And I scored a copy of Lincoln's Virtues: An Ethical Biography at the free books table--since I'm almost done with 1858, I thought it would be a natural follow-up, and I'm always happy to help clean out other places by making our home more cluttered.
God bless literary socialism.

YOU FORGOT TO MENTION THE RANGE ROVER IRE

In Houston, there are two city councilmembers who believe no one should ever get anything "for free," so librarians are forced to track and issue receipts for books sold for $0.25, $0.50 or $1.00, with an occasional $2.00 book... the notion of contributing to the home education of citizens seems not to have occurred to the penny-pinchers on Council. Nonetheless, many a time I've gone into the liebebby with $3 or $4 in my pocket and come out with a stack of delightful additions to my own home liebebby. For old folks of limited means, library book sales are a godsend.
Enjoy your literary socialism! Glad to see you're getting Sam started early!
