Oh what a lovely lot of interesting comments came from my last post. I so love talking about books.
I've been suffering from writers block for a while now, and yet today I'm bubbling over with interesting ideas for things to talk to you about. Sadly, I'm working and I really, really can not spend the day blogging about books and libraries, however tempting that is, but I thought I would just drop in and say how much I'm enjoying the discussion.
Lisa suggests that I should be a librarian. She says that she can see me working in rare books or in an Art Museum library. What do you reckon?
Actually, if I ever were to be a librarian there are two places I'd absolutely love to work. One is in Melbourne working with the SLV's Children's Collection. Take a look see:
Now to me, this would be the bestest wonderfulest most swoon-worthy job in the whole country. Sigh.
Working at the National Library in Canberra cataloguing their Marcie Muir Children's Collection. That would have to be nearly as good as being a homeschooling mum.
What other wonderful children's collections do you know of? Does your local state library have a special collection? Do you live in Amherst near The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, for example? Or near Dromkeen? Or the Cotsen Children's Library? Do you get along to the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival each year? Tell me where else I'd love to work if I were a librarian.
Oh, I do love talking about books.
Lisa likes talking about books too. I get lots of my book recommendations from her blog, Hopewell Takes on Life. Get along and have a look around. Lisa reads even more than I do, I think. What's more, she's homeschooled using AO. She can cook. And guess what? Lisa really is a librarian. Yep. In real life. I think you'll like her blog. I do.
