Friends with a book

About to go on vacation, and here’s a few things that I’ve been looking at during this busy week. See y’all in a few weeks! πŸ™‚

β™₯ Good-bye for now, Olympics, see you in 2 years! This sweet post of Olympic-sized inspiration that comes through in small, unselfish acts was just the tonic I needed to wrap up the London Games.

β™₯ Sam read this article out loud, about an unexpected encounter in a Portland coffeeshop. Read on until the end — it’s worth it.

β™₯ Kitty cams revealing the inner lives and habits of our heretofore mysterious felines? I am sure someone will pay for this. πŸ˜‰

β™₯ Sam sent me this post about a little toy bookmobile, with wonderful close-up photos. Ah, nostalgia never looked so cute.

β™₯ And we end on a special note, a NY Public Library site highlighting pics of people reading books on public transit. This makes me think of when I was living and working in the UAE, and a story I heard about a student who had visited Australia and been amazed by so many people reading in public, where “everyone is friends with a book.” πŸ™‚ x 100
