Whenever anyone goes to the library, there’s a set of steps that must be gone through, before getting the book.
It’s just tradition for any book reader. Even if you don’t think you have steps to getting a book at the library, but you do. It’s probably not even intentional, and neither was mine.
And since I’ve realized mine, I’d love to share it with you all, and maybe even help you figure out that you have your own factors and steps to go through to get a book at the library.
This part is usually when you walk into the library, and you just go to your usual section to go look through all the books that they’ve recently added there, or just simply to look for a new book.
I’ve recently started looking through the upstairs section of the library, so I just like to consider the whole area as my searching engine for books, because I don’t really know much books up there, so I don’t want to go discriminate against books.
But at this part, you’ll find me simply walking through the aisles of the library, just briefly looking through the books on the shelves, and trying to find one that caught my eye. Call me horrible, but I like to judge books by their titles.
After walking through some aisles, I like to finally stop in one random aisle and pick up some books in the aisle, just to go ahead and read the descriptions on the back. I like to think that the descriptions in the back explain the books more than the cover or the title can.
So I like to go ahead and read the back cover, or sometimes on the inside of the front cover, just to go and check what the book is about- to see if I’ll like it.
Maybe I will, maybe I won’t, but I think that reading the back cover or the inside of the front cover will help me choose and make the process a bit easier and smoother.
If I’m looking for a specific book, like for summer reading, then I’d just immediately go ask a librarian, because I do not expect myself to find anything easily.
I pick some up, and even though earlier I said that I don’t judge/discriminate books, that’s a lie- I do.
After picking up the books I…
I squeal and fangirl over the books covers, because any author who spends time making sure that their cover is as beautiful and amazing as their book is an author I want to be friends with.
You manage to write one whole amazing book, and then in addition, you add onto that greatness but making sure the cover is on point, and has its aesthetics in check.
One great author.
But obviously, I don’t do this in those wide open areas, because I’m sure I would get weird looks for people if I started jumping up and down and hugging a book.
He/She scans the books, checks them out, then I take the books after thanking her, and then I leave to my car.
And then that’s the end of my library journey!
What’s your routine at the library, what do you normally do when you take a trip there?

Also, thank you all for being such supportive people about my vlog idea and name not showing my face. It’s just for privacy reasons, and also because I’m not even ready for that yet.
Until next time…
