    Is that 3 visits to the library in one week? You have made me feel better. We are averaging a trip a week at the moment. Thank goodness for libraries. Othewise eldest would be reading me out of the house and home!

    Hi Cheryl, This post was spread over a week or two. I do confess are having a fabulous problem with our summer holidays – so much time on our hands and a couple of voracious readers who have to read, read, read, … and then read some more!!! It has been a great summer for reading. I just can’t get over how we never seem to take repeats… the library is limited after all!!! Hope you guys are having a fun weekend!!!
