A Bouquet of Books

     I went to the library today for some books to read on an upcoming trip. Lo and behold, I stumbled into the last days of the Friends of the Library sale. I checked my purse but I only had ninety cents in cash; so even though the books were delightfully inexpensive, I only came home with two. I mentioned to my husband that I might stop by the library tomorrow afternoon to pick up one or two other books I had left behind for lack of sufficient funds. Even though it was dinnertime, he insisted we drop everything and return to the library immediately. An hour later, I walked out of the building with a smile on my face and four more books.

     "That was romantic," I said to my husband as we walked to the car. "I would rather get a bouquet of books than a bouquet of flowers."

     "I know," he said, smiling. "I know you."

     He does.


  1. This made me smile because I know that about you and can picture both of you in the library checking out the books for sale, and I can picture the smile you must have had on your face as you walked out with your new treasure.

  2. What a kind and tender hearted thing for him to do for you. But that's "True Love"

  3. I love library book sales. When we leave a book sale--or Goodwill--and my husband sees the smile on my face, he always says; "I'm glad you're a cheap date."
