Reading Around the World, Part Deux

Written on: June 16th, 2010 by: in Blog Posts

I’ve posted before about my friend Lauren, globetrotter and voracious reader. For the past several weeks, she’s been on location in a very remote and beautiful recovery site in the Vietnamese highlands- battling aerial leeches, exploring temples and VC tunnels, and always reading, reading, reading. No internet or WiFi in this part of the jungle, so Lauren was sure to pack enough books to last the assignment:

I am just about to close my box o’ stuff so we can palletize it tomorrow but not without giving you a list of the books packed in it: Selected Stories of Franz Kafka... Paradise Lost and Other Poems by John Milton… Living the Wisdom of the Tao by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty, and We Die Alone by David Howarth…

If you’d like to know more about Lauren’s reading list, click the titles above to search in the Delaware Library Catalog. I’d also asked Lauren to pose for a photo outside of a local public library, but she was going straight to the site. We’d love to know more about YOUR reading and library adventures, though! If you’re a Flickr user, we’d love to see a picture of you outside your public library- either your local library or one that you come across on your travels, wherever that is in the world. Upload a picture to Flickr and give it the delawaredivisionoflibraries tag. We’ll use the pictures to educate everyone about library services and to build support for your libraries at home.
