East Tawas Library is Closed on Wednesday

I finished the book I was reading and returned it to the library drop box. It still had another week before it's due date, but I don't like to procrastinate. I will drive over to the Tawas City Library this afternoon, to pick up another good book to read. It's about a two mile drive, not too bad. I don't want to wait until tomorrow to get more reading material. It keeps my thoughts full of interesting material, so my mind is never idle. Having an overactive mind can be dealt with. It just requires a constant effort, on my part. Photo: Mine

In fairness, you still have this public library. Here, i think of the 17 cities in Metro Manila, only 2 of them have public libraries as far as I know. Not sure though. People don't go anymore to libraries becausenof ebooks.

I don't want to use an ebook, it's bad for the eye-site. Our public libraries were closed for over six months, it was terrible.

I understand you. I like reading too. It distracts us from over thinking

@Belexhanns Just like the human body needs food and exercise. And the brain also needs to receive positive input and exercise.

Does your local library offer Hoopla? I get a lot of ebooks and audiobooks and music through that.

@kobesbuddy I'm not certain, but I think you can use them on the computer too. You can definitely access them on a phone.

Reading keeps me from ever being bored. I don’t much like ebooks either.

I know what you mean!! I found a place online that has things like diaries of Civil War soldiers and other things from the 19th century. I just love reading those things!!!!

I need to keep my mind busy, or I start overthinking and this is not good.

I am always overthinking, unless I keep my mind occupied doing constructive things.

Great picture...I like to keep my mind occupied too. It's nice to meet another person that doesn't like to procrastinate. My husband is a HORRIBLE procrastinator. Makes me crazy!

You have a good habit of reading ! I mean the paperback books or hardback books ,rather than the virtual books.

Even though internet makes learning accessible now, I prefer printed ones to soft copy ones. Happy reading!
