Love reading, love encouraging others to read, love reading aloud to others, love quietly reading while others read. I love crime fiction, and also enjoy biography, history, theology and more. My favourite children’s picture book is ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes
I’m not much of a handyman, so I enjoyed building this library from a Street Library kit, getting help along that way from handier mates, including instructions on setting the post it stands on (first time achievement!).
But the best bit was asking my Facebook friends to suggest quotes that would inspire reading, while I chronicled the construction progress. From over 120 comments, my family and I narrowed down on:
* “In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself” – C.S. Lewis
* “There is more treasure in books than in all pirates loot on Treasure Island” – Walt Disney
I look forward to browsing what people leave when they take a book.
