A curious thing: So one of the icebreakers at this particular volunteer opportunity is to go around the bookstore and pick a book that says something about you or that you like and present it to the group. I originally picked out a book about John Adams, which was NOT the McCullough biography which is on my all time favorites list. I saw some toddlers who were going through the Young Adult section and so I knelt down and the girl child presented me with an “Oracle Of Love” novel, which looked like it belonged to the same class of books like “Gossip Girl.” I mused that she must have heard me mention soaps and Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill. The boy-child handed me a book about codes and ciphers and cryptography, which kinda floored me as when I was a little kid, I was all about that stuff. I still love that now. I was floored because he picked something that I hadn’t told too many people about and that brought me back to a better time.
So here are the stats:
