we're so lucky

we're so lucky to live in the city. 
we have city sounds all day, brick buildings, coffee shops....and right down the street, a sprawling, beautiful city library. we just got our cards a couple of days ago & i promptly checked out more pages than i can possibly read in the next week before going back to seattle.

i love the city life. and speaking of it, i'm going to spend the day enjoying mine. have a beautiful day!

  3. My librarians know me by first name. I'm there all the time. Who doesn't love free stuff?!! I also like checking out movies there...

  4. So many good books! We're trying to get the motivation up to get our library cards too. I used to work for a university so there was no need for me to have one (free books for days with my ID) but now I miss being able to pick out whatever suits my fancy without the dolla bill obligation.

  5. Since I need to save money for paying back my loans (eeek!), I've decided to stop buying books. It's way too expensive and I usually only end up reading the book once anyway. I'm lovin' libraries right now!

  8. One the Road was one of those right of passage books--it made me feel so alive and attune.

    Maybe it would be worth reading again, but I feel it's like "Catcher in the Rye," and can only be enjoyed at a certain point in your lifestyle.

    I I think that's my euphemistic explanation for being boring now.

  10. I need to get a start on that library card thing again. Used to go to the library all the time, but I've been enjoying actually buying books lately. But now I'm out of bookshelves, so the library it is!

  12. I love when you find the perfect library. I'm kind of sad because the fiancé & I are about to move... and so I'm gonna have to leave the library I've been going to every weekend for like 5 years!

  13. Have you started On The Road? Prepare to be inspired. What I wouldn't give to be part of the Beat Generation for a day.
