I did not know that

This little person (much bigger now) loves to ask, You know what? He helps me remember that there is still much to learn.

During this pandemic I am finding out that there are a lot of things I never knew. I think of myself as a curious person but lately I wonder if I give up too easily.

I have been thoroughly enjoying and celebrating the vast electronic resources offered by my library. But I have been surprised by some of the books that are not available as an audiobook download. And then I read this article. I have an audible account and a Libro.fm account. Planning to spend down my credits on audible and start using Libro.fm more often.

Inspired by Mary’s Read Better post, I joined the MMD book club. I tried it for a month when we were first staying home but my work schedule made it hard to keep up. But now that I’m retired (have I mentioned that?) I thought I would give it another try. I also loved this recent podcast and have been thinking a lot about what kind of reader I am or want to be. I know I want more people to have access to books or all sorts and I want to learn more about how I can support our amazing libraries.

I love reading about what you all are reading. And very excited that our local library branch is starting curbside pick up this week! Happy Wednesday.
