A Month of Thankfulness: Day Thirteen

I'm thanking God today for our public library. I am one of many book lovers in our corner of the blogosphere and I love having lots of them at my fingertips on the bookshelves at the cottage. However, there really is limited space here. Plus I am not so fond of dusting that I want more stuff to dust and dust around. And some books are interesting but once I read them, I find I really don't care to own them. I want the books that I own to be the ones I refer to often or the ones I want to be able to lend to someone or the ones that impacted me so much that I am sentimental about them. So there are many books that I am thankful to be able to borrow from the library to peruse and then let them go back.

Rebecca is hard at work collecting our thankful thoughts each day of this month of November. Thanks, Rebecca!

I enjoy a good library too, and wish I had one within a convenient distance.

You are blessed to have a good library. Ours just seems to struggle at times. There are a few good books there, but the fiction selection is not great and if I ask for something via inter library loan, they look at me like I'm an alien.

Amen, amen! I love books, but don't have to own them all to enjoy them. The library is one of my happy places.

I love a good library too! I have FOUR(!) library cards! I'm not so good at limiting my home library though, and that is why my little cottage sometimes gets over stuffed with books.
