Musing Monday (July 6)

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about library company…

Who, if anyone usually accompanies you to the library? Is it somewhere you go alone? Or is it a regular outing with family or friends? Which do you prefer?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

Edit: Sorry it's up so late, I scheduled the post but forgot to change the time along with the date.

In the past I had always gone to the library on my own – not having many readers amongst my friends or family. But over the past year or so, my sister has developed quite a nice little bookish streak and has been coming with me.

So now, while I still pop out for a couple hours reading/hiding every once in a while I usually always have someone with me. If not Bethany (my sister) then another friend of mine who will pop down and visit with me – which is handy cause then I can get him to carry the books :)

I can’t say that I have a strong preference for either. I enjoy the company because I usually pick up books I wouldn’t normally if I’m with someone else and the option of sneaking off for a lone visit is always available for next time.

Great question!

Here's my answer!

Nowadays, I go to the library with my 4-year-old and I don't ever get to look at books while there! It is like a "smash and grab" mission -- we go in, pick up a ton of books and leave quickly.

I usually have my soon to be four year old son with me, but of course it is much easier for me to look at books when I'm on my own :)
