As part of my 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge, I decided to purge my bookshelves upstairs. It is very hard for me to part with books but there were many on my shelf that I knew I would never read again. Now I just have to tell myself that I do not need to purchase every book in the used book room at our library in Decatur. I have one shelf that I hope will appeal to my older grands. This summer I plan for us to read some of these books during our quiet times.
It is not a big shelf because I am selective in choosing children's literature.
I have already told Marvin that our little house must have book shelves. I like my Kindle but I have never really warmed to it. I still like the look, the feel and the smell of a new book!! I think Readers are life long learners! I want to develop that love for reading in all of my grands.
