There’s Always Wednesday

Through the busy years bringing up her children there had always been Wednesday to look forward to. And it didn’t matter what mood he was in when he returned from work, taciturn or just plain mean, she always had her books to disappear into.

Wednesday was special to her, her day for the library. From an early age she communicated her love of books to her children and enjoyed their excitement at finally discovering how to read.

And now she was here, waiting in the communal hall for the library bus to come with its books offering excitement and pleasure.

This week’s word was Library.  How did I do?

    • Thanks David. I usually go on at length and so it is a good discipline for me to limit my story to 100 words. Hugs back to you from NZ 🙂

  2. I know that feeling!

  3. Wonderfully. 🙂

  4. I was completely drawn in and then realized it stopped at 100 words. Very nice.

    • Thanks Georgette. I love the challenge of a telling story in 100 words. this is the second one I have attempted. T he other was Tea Drinkers Unite.

  5. Yes- I was right there! Could do with a good snuggle up in a library right about now 🙂

  6. You captured the feeling I had as a kid when the Bookmobile came to town . . . BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS!

    • i see the obile library outside the school here each week and wonder does it bring the excitement to thosechildren of the technology world.

      • I expect that most young kids still love books ~ just think of the millions of Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, etc., books sold.
