It’s easy to forget…..

Let’s be honest….2020 sucks. It is easy to forget to stop and smell the flowers, to savor that bite, to play in the rain and to remember who you are. I’m guilty of all of it. But today I got reminded of who I am and what I do. I dropped off books off to an in home daycare (thank you for what you are doing Becca!!!!) and received waves and smiles and “I miss yous”. That reminded me that I am the person that talks to kids about books. I’m the person who gets to see kids be excited about reading. I felt like a celebrity with the fans screaming for me….it was the best feeling I could have.

So take that 2020…no one is going to miss you.

This is what Christmas looks like for a bookmobile

On one of my adventures, I connected with a kiddo just by chance. I think that her and I would be able to talk books with no problem. Her mom reached out a couple of days ago to let me know they had books for me. I wasn’t expecting the bounty I got and if I stop too long to think about it, I get teary eyed. Who am I? Just a woman with a car full of books who knows the importance of having a book in hand…for strangers to trust me is such a foreign concept. These books were a gift to me and I will pass them on, hopefully at a very special event in December, to kids that need them.

Had to put the 1st box in a bag so I could carry them.
So.many.amazing.books. I can’t wait to share!!

People are still kind

I’ve acquired more books again. Some were donated, some I bought. Some of the donated books came from someone I’ve never even met. It blows my mind that a complete stranger would go out of their way to bring me books, just because I say I have a book mobile. I also got another monetary donation but this time from a family I feel that I know pretty well. Again, blowing my mind. My concept is simple….maybe too simple. I want kids to have books. But will it really make a difference? I don’t know but while I contemplate that question, here are new additions to the book mobile.
