Do You Remember?

Do you remember going to the local library and checking out a short stack of books to read for the week?

Do you remember settling into your comfy bed to read?

Do you remember the shadows on the pages formed by a warm glow coming from over your shoulder?

Do you remember the old bed lamp hanging from the headboard?

Ahhh….. Those were the days!

I’m linking to the following parties:

  4. What a heart warming post. I do remember going to the library and getting to take home books. It was magic. Your little bear buddy is an inspiration. I can't get my sock monkey to do anything this summer but tease the dog.

  5. Your bear reminds me of my bear Sofie. I used to keep her on my night table.

  6. Didn't go to the library very often when I was young. Darling teddy! Do enjoy the library today.

  7. These bed lamps are so "cool".


  8. Oooh, I just loved settling into bed after my bath, all cozy, and cracking open a fresh library book. It was pure bliss!! I don't think I allow myself to do that often enough nowadays.

  9. Oh...Those where the days! We had a book mobile that came to our neighborhood once a week....It was so exciting!


  10. Thanks for the trip down memory lane Sherry. I remember the trips to the library and the excitement of settling in to the first book.

  11. Well dear took me back a few years and I liked being in that place in time. Yes! I LoVED having new books to read each time I went to the library. What a sweet post.

    I do remember doing this when I was in my elementary and high school days. I would still read even if its dark just to finish the book 'cause its due for the next day. Those were the days alright.


Your comments make me smile....!!!
