  3. My mum used to take me to the library each week as a child and we’d each wander in our respective spaces and I just remember how huge it seemed. I would wander and wander and just pull out the most random books and then explore the other parts of the library. It’s funny seeing the library now and seeing how it really isn’t as big as I remember it being but I just love to remember all the times I was there and it seemed like this huge and magical place.

  4. Mine was similar. When I was about 6 my dad took me and my sister to our library. We stood their in awe. So many shelves & books all in one place. It felt almost sacred because he told us we had to whisper and not disturb the other patrons. It was an unforgettable memory. And I've been hooked on books ever since. I take my grandchildren now.

It was a lot of fun because I got to do a little of everything from shelving books, adding cards to the Card Catalog (yep, we were old school back then), to putting the dust jackets of new books into clear plastic covers before wrapping them around the new books. The highlight tho was getting first crack at checking out those new books!

  37. Oh I have so many.. One of them is when I had just started reading properly(like a reader, continuously and not one book once in a while kind), and I have a best friend who loves the same kind of books, so that summer we used to always meet after lunch for some cold chocolate shakes or whatever and talk about books for hours. Actually we still do that but now we meet for proper lunches or do grown up stuff too. So that new excitement was just my favourite feeling ever. And I am happy cause I still get to have that feeling.

That book truly transported me into another time and place and since then I've become a novel convert (mostly the classics).
