Anyone else feel a great sense of calm and contentment after a trip to the library results in half a dozen books to read? I always feel anxious when I don't have new books on hand. Not that I don't have my own books, of course, but I've read all those so many times that if I run out of new books, I'll pick up one of my old ones just to read something, knowing I can abandon it halfway through if I get new books before I finish it.
Of course, of the six books I got at the library today, I may only like and actually finish one or two, but there's always the exciting possibility of a 100% success rate in that bag. I could have hours of good entertainment, all for free.
Also, two new DVDs for the kids, which means they are currently completely quiet and content as they watch "Peppa Pig." Happiness all around, and all thanks to the public library.
