I Took My Kids to the Book Store (Books Acquired on Veterans Day (Observed), 2012)

I took my kids to the book store today and let them run like heathen.

They had fun. I usually take them separately (and usually they go to the library), but their mother is at work and we needed to get out of the house.

My daughter picked out a few books for her little brother (and then read them to him, sort of).

She also picked out a book of antique paper dolls (Dolly Dingle) and an Anne of Green Gables pop up cottage book to let the dolls live in.

Here’s what I picked out, maybe more for me than them:

A beautiful illustrated Durer biography that’s written more or less like a comic book, and an illustrated edition of Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing.”

    Even with a kindle, I still love browsing around used book stores. I wish E-bay hadn’t killed so many of them, I could waste a whole day just pouring through the stacks. :-)
