So yesterday I took my soon to story time at our local library. We just moved to the town we are living in so it was the first time we had gone to story time... afterward as I was walking out I paused and I decided to turn around and get a library card... I mean why not right? They're free! Once I had my card I asked the card giving lady where I could find the cookbooks. I strolled over to a corner of the library where she had directed me, with my son on my hip shushing him and telling him we're in a library and that we have to be quiet because those are the rules. I had only one cookbook on my mind... I was doing a random look over of the shelves somewhat forgetting exactly how they were set up... By author? By title? And then... there it was! It beamed.... and was sticking a little bit further out than the other books as though it had shimmied it's way forward a bit so I would not miss it.
As I was walking to the check out counter with my boy one arm and my new borrowed book in the other, I kept thinking.... This is FREE! I was going to buy this book but I hadn't yet because I was a bit hesitant as to whether I was really going to like it, so this was the perfect solution! We now have somewhere to go for both my son and myself and it gives you this satisfying shopping experience without the guilt! So find out where your local library is and pay them a visit!
