"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel

Keep cozy this fall with a good book!

28 July 2009

The book was just as engaging and suspenseful as Genevieve had hoped. She had the first chapter read in a matter of minutes and was well on her way through the second when her mother walked in the room.
"Gen, what are you doing? We have to get these books out on the shelves by tomorrow morning!"
Her mother did not sound the least bit happy with the situation.
Genevieve sat up immediately.
"Mom, I'm sorry. I just...uh...needed a little break. I'll get back to work."
Her mom gave her a reassuring smile and hugged her.
"Thank you, sweetheart. I'm sorry for getting so upset. Just feeling a little overwhelmed myself."
Genevieve smiled back at her mom, feeling relieved that her mother wasn't really upset with her.
"Just take your time, honey. I know it'll all get done," her mother said, flashing Genevieve another apologetic look.
Genevieve got back to work, anxious to finish and get back to the book again.
