As a kid I went to the Brighton branch of the Boston Public Library. I was always very intimidated when I went there. As a little kid it seemed so big. So when as an adult I walked into the Boyden Library in Foxboro Ma., I felt a little intimidated like I was a kid again.
Needless to say I have been back and forth to the library quite a few times over the past couple of months. I know understand the filing system for books that had me clueless as a kid. I also found that if they don’t have a book I want they can send out to another library for me to get what I want. It’s great really, because when it is in they send me an email and I go pick it up.
This was the case for a book, “A River Runs through it”. A good book that I may have to read again. Something about it I can’t explain. Anyway, thank you to the one that suggested that book. I also have the other one on hold as well.
I remember when I was about ten years old, I was sitting on my bed, just finishing a book, when a friend of my sister’s came into my room. He was a tall man with shaggy hair and a full beard. I looked up at him and he said “This is for you.” as he tossed a book onto my bed. I had never seen this man before, nor did I after, but the book he had tossed onto my bed was “The Call of the Wild” by Jack London. I fell in love with the book and Jack London immediately.
This past week at the library, I picked up “The Call of the Wild” and “The Sea Wolf”. Along with other books of course. Anyway, reading that book again, however many times I have read it, I still love it.
I really would like more suggestions for books to read if anyone has any. Thanks.
