book 'em, Dan-O
Ms. Lois has written to let us know about the Adult Summer Reading Program that starts down at the one and only Pomona Public Library on June 22.
Not only am I big fan of our municipal library -- no suffering with the LA County System for us! -- but I have a giant soft spot for summer reading programs. In fact, in the summer of fourth grade, back in Murrville, Tennessee, I started keeping a list of all the books I read, and while everyone else stopped when school started in the fall, I just kept on. I still write down every book I read in an ancient three-subject spiral notebook, the cover of which says "79¢" and bears my childhood address in my 7th- or 8th-grade handwriting. I'm up to 4,972 as of today -- a much more meaningful statistic than the car's odometer to my way of thinking.
Not that the Adult Summer Reading Program is that kind of reading program, but I commend it to your attention nonetheless. Meg-Bob sez check it out!
