Read-a-thon : Hour 10 update and mini-challenge!
It’s going way too fast, and it’s hard to read when I have all the other little things to take care of. Tonight though, it will be quieter and it should be a great time to read! Meanwhile, I’ve read Antigone by Sophocle and it was G.R.E.A.T.! I also read some more of Audrey, Wait! and so far I’m enjoying it.
We also had to go downtown to buy the Man of the House a few last things before his trip, and I drank a huge coffee, so now I’m all bouncy and ready for some page-turning action!
While I was gone, hour 8’s mini-challenge was to answer this “Love your local library” meme, which I’ll do just now!
- What is the name of your local library? What city is it located in? The library I most often go to is the B.A.N.Q. and is located downtown Montreal. It’s been re-built a few years ago, it’s 6 floors high and it’s beautiful!
- How often do you go to the library? If you’re a regular, do the staff know you? Many time a week. I go there to borrow books or study. The place is huge though, so no, the staff doesn’t know me!
- Do you browse while you’re there or just pick up items you have placed on reserve? I do both! It depends if I know what I want, or not. But most of the time, I’ll do a little browsing anyway.
- What is your favorite thing about your local library? It’s quite the “self-serve” service; you can return and borrow books without speaking to anyone! I guess some people would think it misses the charm of a smaller place, but since I love libraries for the “quiet” and “alone” time, I enjoy it.
The picture is from their brochure. I love my library! They have great book selection, in french but also in english! It’s quiet, spacy, comfy, modern and in the hearth of the city. I wouldn’t mind moving in! (as long as the Furry One and the Man in the House can come, too)
