I’m Going Down to the Library/ Pickin’ Out a Book/ Check It In, Check It Out

12 Jul

The title of this post is from the lyrics of a song I learned in elementary school. I found the original artists here: http://www.twoofakind.com/ShowLyrics.asp?id=59

All my things are packed for the big move, except it’s going to take two more weeks before I can get in. I had left out enough books to get me through the time I thought it would take to get into the new place, but these two weeks caught me off guard. So, off to the library I went. It still makes me giddy that I can check out as many books as I want…so I got 5 to start with. Whatdaya know? They’re all Biographies.

Library BooksBeautiful: The Life of Hedy Lamarr, American Rose: A Nation Laid Bare; The Life and Times of Gypsy Rose Lee, Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence, At Home with the Marquis de Sade: A Life, and The Lady in Red: An Eighteenth- Century Tale of Sex, Scandal, and Divorce.

I got the books yesterday around 5 p.m. I’ve already finished Wakingstill deciding if I’ll review it. I’m about halfway through The Lady in Red. At this pace, I’ll be back in the library before the weekend is out! I do wish WordPress had the option to underline text. I can make them bold or italicized, but not underlined…drives me nuts. When I do my reviews, I have to go into my word processing program, write the title, then copy and paste it into the blog. Maybe I’ll take a break from reading and try to find out how to ad that as an option!

Update:

Only took a few minutes…I had to turn on the “kitchen sink” option in the Visual Editor. I feel smart and stupid at the same time 😉
