Sure we do own lots of books, but still there are some other books that we don't have. Oftentimes I do visit the library or the bookstore for a change. I'm capable of staying there for long hours without minding the time (unless I have to do something). I can stay from 2 hours or more entertaining myself with the world inside the pages. I love being in such place...how about you? do you like staying in a place filled with books? How long can you stay in such a place?

The library is indeed a great place to study and for making homeworks. Books inside it will also take us to places..Which makes the library more amazing and incomparable to other places^^

An awfully long time, espically if the children are with me. They get me to read all the books they used to take out, you know the picture books. Its fun to sit on the cushions and read to them. When I chose a book I always end up with so many that I have a job to chose the six I am going to take home. I would like to own my own library and let people take the books out etc

Well, these days I don't have a lot of time so I just stay for 30 minutes max and then I take out the books to read later. But there have been times where I would stay for a few hours.

I can definitely spend hours at a time in a library -- looking for books to read, reading them, etc. Now that many bookstores let you actually sit around in them and read the books there, I can also spend long periods of time in the bookstore. However, I keep remembering that they want me to buy the books, so I try to remember not to merely sit around reading them for long periods. Sometimes, when in a bookstore, I make lists of books I am interested in reading and then figure out whether I will eventually buy the book or borrow it from the library. Of course, when I was growing up, boookstores were different. They expected you to browse and then to select a book to purchase and would not allow you to read them there.

yes i like being in a library. it gives me a strange feeling. i feel like in the silent busy world (how to describe it?). i can stay in a library for long time, maybe about 3 - 5 hours. but i can stay reading in the library. instead, most of time i dig amongst the shelves to find the interesting books. if i start reading, i usually end up lying my head on the table, closing my eyes and coming into wonderful world of dreams . so, i can stay reading in a library, i have to stop time by time, looks for other interesting book and read again.

It depends on the situation. I can stay much time in there if I found an interesting book or new release books to read and someone of my friend that can I ask to talk with me. If there is no my friend and no interest book, so I will leave the library soon. Keep post Happy myLotting...
