Books Purchased

Also, just to let you know, my book buying has sort of changed as of late. I no longer buy a lot of books for myself, which is fine because I have plenty on my shelf that have waited their fair share of time for me to read. Instead, I’ve been buying books for work. What I mean by that is this: I work at a daycare and I am in charge of toddlers (18-36 months). The daycare at which I work is pretty small and fairly new, so it lacks on some precious resources, like books. So I’ve been buying books like board books and what not that are age-appropriate for the kids I work with. Yes, they’re still mine and I’ll take them when/if I leave that job. I look at them as an investment–I know I’ll have kids someday, so the books can be for them too. But I love buying books for my kids at work 🙂 So fun!
