I can read all the books I want without feeling embarrassed!! When I get funny looks from the checkout clerks in book stores my husband cheerily offers the explanation, “she’s a children’s librarian.” He likes the kids books as much as I do!
As of late he has taken to the 39 Clues series’ of books. We finished the first series in record time! He is reading the second series and is very opinionated about who the Vespers are and their motives! I even use him as an example to other parents as to the greatness of these books because my husband has dyslexia and reading was always difficult. He has a master’s degree in IT so he can read when he must but reading for enjoyment just did not happen. When I tell parents he read the series out of enjoyment for the story lines, the history, biographical information and geography touched upon, they are amazed!
I also get to enjoy the pure silliness of reading! Who doesn’t love Dirty Bertie and Walter the Farting Dog? I get to read silly and sometimes a little inappropriate material and share the fun of saying those forbidden words (stupid, dumb, and well, FART) AT SCHOOL!
No one has as much fun as I. I get to read it all. Prekindergarten level all the way through adult reading material. It is great!
I am currently reading a cozy mystery, a 39 Clues children’s adventure mystery, and a realistic fiction adult book. I have on request from my public library a YA sci-fi. No justification needed but just in case anyone actually asks, I AM A CHILDREN’S LIBRARIAN!
