We have the most fabulous librarian ever!!! I must also mention, she is sooo funny!
The last week of school she sent that email out to the faculty...My response to her...
(It was a quick email!)
Since, I had to take my projector remote to our librarian before I could check out, I checked in about the books.
I love her enthusiasm! As we walked around the shelf, she would pull a book and gush about it...
Librarian: You will love this book!
Me: Is it sad?
Librarian: Well...it has such a good message!
Me: I don't do sad!
In the pile it went.
Grabbing another book...
Librarian: This is such a good book!
Me: Is it sad?
Librarian: Just a few parts.
Me: I don't do sad!!!!
In the pile it went!
We found several other ones that apparently are not sad!
So the passive aggressive person in me came out.
Fine, I'll take your sad books but, it doesn't mean I have to read them!
Here is my collection, right by my pool where I plan to read them, all except the sad ones...maybe!
Ok, some of you might be asking...why not the sad ones?
I have friends ask me to go see a move with them. My first question...is it sad? Or, they might tell me I need to read a particular book. Is it sad? No, thanks!
I love mystery, romance, drama...just not the sad ones.
Reason #1: I think it's because I've had enough sadness in my life. I would much rather read the books that are happy! Yes, I might be missing out a really great book or movie with a great message, but guess what? There is always a book out there that is happy, humorous and has a really good message!
Reason #2: I'm not a pretty crier! Seriously! I get all red and blotchy! Not red and blotchy for a few minutes...red and blotchy for the longest time!!!
My summer reading begins with happy!
