LOAD 215-25 My Story before the stories

This is the page I was going to make for LOAD 23 before I got distracted by another idea and as I can't get my phone to comply with my request for screen grabs for today's challenge (Speech bubbles) I made this one instead. My Story before the stories: notes and inscriptions from the covers of my childhood books.

LOAD 215-22 Ex Libris

Todays prompt related to us as readers today and maybe what has changed over time.
My journalling reads: I have always and will always be a reader. But certainly a lot has changed during my lifetime of reading. I read more online. I buy more of my books online. I belong to 3 libraries and have left behind 4 (plus the school ones). I read more books to the kids than I do to myself. I have apps and websites to help me catalog my collection and reading desires. I still love alot of the same authors but my list of favourites gets longer most months. I read more fiction for adults than ever before- lots of crime stuff, surprisingly. My favourite store now is Crow Books. I still make my own books only more professionally. I have 7 full book shelves in my house- lots of boxes in our move. But I still have a hard time deciding which books I am happy to swap at the Book Swap Shop. I don’t have as much time to read but as always my sidetable is as overflowing with books.

LOAD215-2 Our Classic

Todays challenge was about Goodnight Moon- Goodnight Moon isn't really all that well known in New Zealand- although I know we do have a copy somewhere it's not something our kids were ever into. Maisy on the other hand has been loved and loved and then loved some more. The boys in the picture cut their teeth on Maisy literally some times! They are now 17 and 7 but there's still one Maisy fan left in the house.... he started Kindy today... and was excited to find Maisy on the shelf there as well.
