Just yesterday coming home from the library John I were talking about how there is so much information available. There are so many books. I often get overwhelmed. I keep hearing about new books that catch my interest. My bank account could never support my book interest. I'm so thankful for the public library. I'm so thankful for print books and ebooks and audio books. I just wish I had more time to read.

SOLS 6/31 So Many Books, So Little Time
Today as I corrected papers, I listened to Matched by Ally Condie. As an aside, if you've read The Giver by Lois Lowery, you really should read Matched. There are interesting parallels. I'm enjoying the story. At one point the narrator talks about how the society had been overloaded by technology and information so they decided to limit what was available. Committees sorted through everything and selected 100 songs, 100 poems, 100 painting, etc that would be the only ones to survive. An interesting concept. How do you choose?
