The air is thick and hazy, humidity hanging like a curtain.
I reach into my bag of treasures, make a selection and smile sinking into the coolness of my leather chair.
Air-conditioning blowing, too hot and muggy to be outside.
So much to do, no desire to do it.
Summertime books are calling.
I’m diving right in … you?
“The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don’t, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.”
