Buying books

February 1, 2002

Late 2001/early 2002

I love to buy books. My son has a library all his own. It began small. It began to grow once we moved back to Irving and began browsing through thrift stores and going to garage sales.

We bought him 15 books in 2000

We bought him 61 more in 2001

Okay, in 2002, I went a little bonkers, I bought him 155 books. It was time for a new book shelf.

More later….

Lesson learned: Just because you surround your child with books doesn’t mean he’ll learn to read early or love to read. It took a few years to learn this one. My son is very creative, maybe the books have helped him with that.
