Sunday Salon: I Love Book People
My husband needed to pick something up from Lowe's today.
This is a frequent occurrence. Sunday afternoons mean walking the aisles of building supply stores in search of tiny screws, bolts, or obscure and cataclysmically important pieces of hardware. It is a given that the more critical and important the hardware it is, the longer it will take to find it in the little bins and drawers that line the aisles.
So I pulled out my book while my husband looked for the thingamajiggy. And I think I got a couple of chapters in (Middlemarch, if you must know).
A little later, my husband and I were inspecting something pretty exciting (did you know that they make tool backpacks?). And one of the store employees came up to me and stated asking: How many books do you read a month, what kind of books do you like to read?
My new friend reads on her her break, and whenever else she can. She has an e-reader but prefers a physical book. She gives her grandchildren books, and more books.
I love book people.
