On YouTube – I went wild at work!

Hi Everyone,

I did something a little crazy at work yesterday. See what’s in my bag!

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

  1. This was a great idea! I enjoyed hearing about all these books. I haven’t been to the library in awhile and this made me want to go back.

    1. Hi Kathy – thank you for watching πŸ™‚ It was fun to charge through the aisles and randomly pick books out, not thinking about the prices. It reminded me of those supermarket sweepstakes winners who load up their carts with as much as they can in a short time!

  2. You picked some great books! I love Tracy Chevalier and have read most of her books. But not that one! Happy reading.

    1. Hi Darlene – thank you for watching and taking a look at my book haul. It was fun! I must read another Chevalier book. Hope you are doing well! πŸ™‚

  3. I would have loved to have seen the little boys expression when you told him he could check out up to one hundred books. You’ve turned reading into a workout, Barbara! That bag looks heavy. Happy reading! Derek thought you were so cute today! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Jill – thank you (and Derek) for watching my book haul. The bag was pretty heavy, I’ll admit! That little boy was so cute. I just love when they come up to my desk πŸ™‚ Hope you are taming those aggressive flowers in your yard!

  4. I love this, Barbara. What a sweet story too! I wish I could’ve seen the look on the little boy’s face. ❀️ Hope you love all these.

    1. Hi Mischenko – I love that he came up to my desk and asked me about the book limit. So sweet. Thank you for stopping by – I hope you are doing well. I’ll be over soon πŸ™‚

  5. I agree with Jill: You are very fit, hefting that book bag. Along with the wisdom you impart, I like your breezy but intentional style. I would say you are unique among reference librarians – ha! I have Girl with a Pearl Earring on my coffee table. Loved it! Now you’ve inspired me to read other books by her.

    Happy Memorial Day reading.
    P. S. Our library allows for 100-book checkouts too, a fun fact that amazes me. πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Marian – thank you for your comments – always so complimentary! I’m glad you also loved Girl with a Pearl Earring. And 100 check-out limits – it must be a national libary thing!

  6. Hi Barbara. Loved the story about the boy (100 books! 😳 🀩) and the information about the 10 books you picked out. Here in Spain most of the books at the public library are in Spanish. We miss going to the library living here. That was one of our favorite activities back home. Happy reading!

    1. Hi Nancy – Thank you so much for watching my video. I’m glad you enjoyed it. We don’t have too many books in other languages in our library system either, except for a Spanish collection. Hope you are doing well.

  7. I’m sure the look on that little boy’s face was priceless when he heard you say, “100!” It’s almost like being in a candy store. Wonderful idea, Barbara, and you gave us even more books to read. The most I’ve checked out is 3 or 4 and I thought that was a lot. πŸ™‚ Have fun reading and enjoy your weekend. πŸ’—

    1. Hi Lauren – yes I almost always check out 1 or 2 books, never a haul because it seems like an overcommitment! It was really fun to do and I’m sure I’ll do that again. It’s nice to have a selection on hand of new books that I didn’t have to buy. Thanks for reading and commenting. I hope you are enjoying the weekend! πŸ™‚

  8. LMAO! I am envisioning the Netflix series: “Librarians Gone Wild!” I have had similar experiences in used book stores or yard sales. Filling up a bag of books. In fact, I have been to a library sale where you pay for a bag and then pack in as many books as will fit. Good times. Anyway, enjoy your weekend. Curious about Paula McLain’s book. I too loved “Paris Wife.”

    1. Hahahaha! That’s so funny, Jeff. I’ll start pitching that idea to Netflix but I’ll be sure to get you in on the deal as creator. I did one of those things with the bag and filling it up with books. That’s fun. I’m late in replying – I hope you are having a nice weekend πŸ™‚

    1. I know, wasn’t that cute? I didn’t get to see how many books he actually checked out but I hope it was a lot! Thanks for watching, Jennifer!
