In case I haven't mentioned here before how much I love reading *snort*, I would like to take the time to do so. Hi. My name is Ivy and I'm a bookworm. I also helplessly suffer from frequent attacks of bibliophilia. My condition started in childhood and steadily progressed as I grew older. I actually have this fear that those ebooks and ereaders would become so practical that the traditional books would become, if not totally extinct, then - what's the term? Endangered? Isn't there a sci-fi book with that scenario as the premise? Props to whoever can identify the novel (I probably won't be able to sleep trying to recall it).
As somebody who gets her high from books, I understandably am also fond of libraries. In fact, Library Science had hovered at the top of the list of majors I was interested in. Languages won out, but the interest remains to date. My first exposure to libraries was a terrific one. My grade school library was a wonderful place that inspired a love for books that would last a lifetime. To pay homage to this beloved place and also to celebrate February as Library Lovers Month, I wrote an article about my library memories.
Speaking of reading, so many books are on my list (as is the usual case), but I've really been yearning for a copy of "The Secrets of Pistoulet". In my mind, I've come to consider it as a cross between Peter Mayle's Provence books and Nick Bantock's Griffin and Sabine series. I'm feeling this urge to mention a few more books on the list, so I'll end this now before I give in and become unstoppable, hee.
