Fellow book lovers, can you imagine opening giant boxes of new books every week? These boxes contain books in every genre, shape and size. Imagine getting to see all of the latest releases before everyone else.
Well, this is not a dream. It is a reality for me every week of the year. It’s like Christmas every day. I hold new books as if they were brightly wrapped packages under the Christmas tree. I open the front covers, flip through the crisp, clean pages, and inhale the new book smell.
Of course my objective is to process all of the new books so they can find their way to the library book shelves. Library patrons are anxiously awaiting the new releases from their favorite authors. But, for that bright shining moment, I can imagine that they all belong to me. It’s heaven on Earth.
