Twenty years later I still visit the very same library, and although I’ve moved around and visited many across the city, I still favour this quaint and unassuming haven. The time capsule that it is, I could probably walk to the middle isle of the nonfiction rows and find the exact book where I first learned in depth about the female reproductive system at 9 years old. Now that’s nostalgia!
Toronto is a fabulous city, and I am proud of it for many reasons, but our library system which is the world’s busiest urban public library system, would have to be at the top of the list. Thanks to our reservation system I can wait in cue to get any book in the entire Toronto Library Catalogue shipped right to my home library, something I take advantage of every week.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
My picks from this past week have been on my TBR list for a very long time, and I'm really excited to finally get the chance to read them. First off are two classics that I'm sure most of you have read.
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Watership Down by Richard Adams
The last one was only published in 2009, but I've been in cue for it at the library for at least 7 or 8 months.
Apologize, Apologize by Elizabeth Kelly
