Quote of the Week

Book lovers never go to bed alone. - Unknown

When I found this quote among a list of library related quotes, I thought perhaps this doesn't pertain to library technology but I can tell you that it was my love of books that helped bring me to the Library Technology Program at PCC. I will admit that I keep a couple of stacks of books on my bed that I'm reading or will be reading in the very near future. Don't get me wrong, on almost every possible available space in my bedroom, I have books lined up on bookshelves or stacked up. As the quote says, I definitely don't go to bed alone and I feel like my books are my companions.

Over the break, I spent quite a bit of time reading in bed as that's one of my favorite things to do. It felt like a guilty pleasure but after pushing aside my book friends for some serious studying the last month of the semester, I felt had to catch up with them during this precious free time.

One thing I have encouraged students at the elementary school where I work is to look at books as your friends. You can take a book with you just about any place. It's a quiet and constant companion. How can you go wrong with that?

Anything that encourages reading gets a thumbs up is my philosophy. So if you haven't done so lately, curl up with a book tonight or even in the morning before getting up. You know how some people will get up early to exercise, well I'm not one of them. But I will wake up a little early to read a few pages of a book before starting my day. Happy Reading!
