Random Fact: We went to the library today. Everyone knows that libraries are magical places filled with wonderful things, aka…books. And we all love books. We used to take a laundry basket to carry all of our books in until all of our baskets broke. Now we just have a regular basket. It’s fun to go to the library because a couple of the librarians groan when they see us walk in.
Another Random Fact: I love David McCullough. I’ve read 1776, John Adams, Truman, and Mornings on Horseback. I like the reliability of his facts and the interesting way he presents them.
So, I told you all that in order to tell you that I found a golden treasure today at the library. They got a new book-
The illustrated edition of 1776! It is huge and comes with replicas of original documents, letters, and maps in pockets on the inside! It costs about $60 and I can read it for free! I ran to Caroline to tell her the amazing news and she gave me a funny look. Obviously not a history fanatic.
Needless to say, my day was made.
