This entire week of April has been National Library Week, the 8th through the 14th.
So here's my questions: when was the last time you were in a library?
For a lot of writers, we can't live without them: they are our eternal reference, even though
we have the internet. Most libaries have that slightly dusty, papery, hard-bound goodness
to them, so that every book you pick up feels like you've found gold.
Libraries are probably more economical than ever, as plunking down $15 for a book (and more)
isn't as viable as it used to be.
Whatever your excuse is for not visiting, try to make it into one -- even if just for old times sake.
Check out a book, something that makes you love to read, be it a mystery, thriller or memoir.
I grew up living about three blocks away from a library. My sisters and I were there all
the time. So much information, so much to read, so much to pour over and ponder.
I absolutely love libraries. And if you love to read or write, you really should too.
