new library books

I have always loved going to the library and taking my time there, I mean time, rarely I am out of there in under 45mins. I mainly go for non-fiction books, I guess one reason is that it is easy enough to have a quick flick and decide if you will like the book. One thing about books is that you are always learning, I often get at least three or so photography books on all topics especially those that are not things that I normally photograph as I am always able to gain a new piece of wisdom.

I went tonight and came out with a swag of books, which are as follows.

  1. I’m interested in that night shots book! We’re going to Vegas this weekend and I just realized I don’t know how to take night pictures! At least, I’ve never tried!

  2. Helen, you inspired me. I haven’t been to the library since we moved here and we’d only been to the library once or twice at our last place (the kids were too young to be expected to behave in the library).

    We went yesterday and Isak got 2 “I Spy” books; Anja got a bunch of non-fiction children’s books; I got 3 photography books; and I got 5 books geared toward children on Spain along with a “Learn to Speak Spanish” audio CD. How cool is that? Why on earth do I not utilize the library more??? We’re leaving in just over a month and now it’s too late to get much out of it. Hopefully there’s a good library on the base in Spain!

  3. i’m sooooooooooooooo with you. i was just in the non-fiction section today for over an hour and I still didn’t see everything!
