Ever since I got married and moved to Philadelphia I have been doing things out of Heidi-like-character.
I have a library card.. and I've made trips to the library. I don't think I ever went to the library in college except to cut through the building on my way to class.
I have read (and finished) MULTIPLE (not just 2) books since I have been married. Some say I'm growing up, I say I'm just bored.
While I was back in Oklahoma in August my brother was reading a Francine Rivers series. Anyone that has read any of her books know it's not usually a male favorite. But he kept talking about it so I had to give it a shot. My aunt, cousin, sis-in-law, and brother all read it so I knew it was going to be a good one. I started out with the first of the series,
Loved it. I was happy, then sad, then cried, then angry. Great book.
Then I needed the 2nd book, Her Daughter's Dream. I checked online and our neighborhood library didn't have it, but the central one did. So I put in a hold and had them send it to the Fishtown library.
Apparently I ordered the "Large Print" version.
It has 782 pages. I feel like a 5 year old learning to read. I find myself turning the page every 3.5 seconds. It also kind of gives me a headache.
The plus side. I don't have to wear glasses or contacts to read it.
Note to self. Next time you check out a book online. Make sure it's a normal print book.
