I got it good but for the 1st time in my 62 years.... I can not borrow a book. By book I mean an object with two covers and a text block. Nothing compares. Yes yes yes. I’m purchasing off Amazon but I’ve always had a library to frequent all of my years. As a child in Western Maine, it was a library in the neighboring town. In my many years in the US Navy it was a library on base or out in town even for a couple overseas assignments. My appreciation for books was embedded in the book bus, which came to our rural community once every month or so. A missed opportunity because we were bailing hay, a storm kept us from being able to get out to the village, or some other bump in the road felt like the end of life. I so look forward to pursuing the library collections soon. The calm silence, the scent, the excited child with a pile at checkout....I miss them all. Soon....
