Welcome to MyLibraryCardWoreOut!
So, I decided to create a blog.
Do you know why? Well, of course you don’t. I’ll tell you why.
Because I love to read. (Big duh)
But the sad thing is is that many people in the world don’t like to read and that is sad for a bookworm like me to hear. Don’t ask me why (because personally I do not know myself) but I am kind of on a mission. A mission to get more people reading. And for some reason, there is one thing I want to do (though it might take me a while to do it.) I want to buy books and send them to a place where they do not have any. Or donate to an old library to spruce up their collection. I want to send the gift of literature! I want to spread the printed word.
In addition to that I want to change how I see books too. When I was younger I sometimes would see a book and toss it up like it was just a piece of paper and sometimes I still do that. But books are a precious thing. Many people cannot read or write and many people (even if they can read) do not have the availability of getting to a library. My library (fortunately) is about 2 miles away from me, so I can walk or bike there (though I’m too lazy to do so (#readerproblems)). And I do not know anyone who would not want to go to my library. It is like a second family and I am not talking just about the books, I am talking about the people there. Whenever I go to a library, no matter where it is, I get a familiar feeling inside. Like returning home. My library has a lot of books but not as many as some, but the librarians will happily order a books for you if you need it. If another library does not have it they will buy it and get it added to the libraries list of book.
I stated this blog because I wanted to be a blogger and I wanted to share some books which I love with people who are fortunate enough to have a computer – fortunate enough to be able to read. And I just hope that this blog gets spread around and keeps going so that everyone will not only see the books that are being reviewed, but I hope to inspire young readers and continue to foster the love of books in others. And my mom (Guest Blogger….M.O.M, My Own Mother) once in a while does posts to help keep the blog active and alive while I’m drowning in school work.
I hope that books, paper books will not dies out because of electronics. There is a difference between reading a book on a screen and reading it off paper. When you actually hold the book you get to feel the pages. You feel the book and become one with the words. On a screen, you just see the words and read it and then….POOF. It is gone just like that. You can get a book on an electronic device very fast but a book in a library you have to find it. You have to look for the book and find the author and call number. You might need the librarian. I just hope that this blog inspires young people to read. And maybe to become be a writer themselves.
So once again, welcome.
