[tweetmeme]About 2 weeks ago I put up a poll about your local library use.
Here are the results.

Do you use your local library?
67% Yes
33% No

If they answered yes, they were asked to complete the following questions.

How many books do you have checked out usually?
80% 1-3    20% 5-10

What types of books do you usually check out?
50% Fiction  50% Non-Fiction

What genre of books do you read?
Romance 22.22%
Thriller 22.22%
Humor 22.22%
Sci-Fi 11.11%
Self Help 11.11%
Other 11.11%

Do you find your own books, or request them online and have them waiting for you?
80% find their books on their own
20% request them and have them waiting

I’m surprised at the large percentage that don’t use the library.  Honestly, how many people go back and re-read books?  I understand buying reference books, but book that are read for pleasure – I can probably think of less than 5 books I’ve re-read in my life.

Do you re-read books?
If so, what are some that you’re gone back to read again?

A friend forwarded this to me.  I thought it was worth sharing.
I will be out of town for about a week with some girlfriends so if I don’t respond to comments as quickly as usual that is why.  Please be assured though I read all of your comments and enjoy them 🙂

An Obituary printed in the London Times

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has
been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his
birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
– Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
– Why the early bird gets the worm;
– Life isn’t always fair;
– and maybe it was my fault..

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in
charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from
school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding
an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent
to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform
parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and
criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar
in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her
lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his
wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers:
I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I’m A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone….

From Toy With Me

About 2 months ago my friend Cute~Ella Is Bold sent me a blog that was posted on Toy with Me that was written by Nucking Futs Mama and her husband Why Is Daddy Crying.  I was literally laughing out loud as I read it.  One of the funniest blogs I’ve read in recent memory.  I figured I’d share it with you as you relax today 🙂

I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter.
Michael & I went down to my parents house for dinner after church.
Mom made ham and mashed potatoes.  There were green beans and a salad too, but who cares about that….  (veggies are yucky right?)

After dinner Michael and I went riding the motorcycle for a bit with my friend Dave.  By the time we got home tonight MY BUTT HURT!  That is why I found this picture vaguely appropriate 🙂

Happy Easter to all!
