The A to Z Challenge

atoz-theme-reveal-2015In the A to Z Challenge the idea is to blog about a subject beginning with a different letter every day (except Sundays) in April. I tried it for the first time with my travel blog last year, and I’m doing it again this year (on the theme of Gallus Glasgow if you’re interested). Then I had a crazy thought – maybe I could follow it on this blog too? It would be a good way of using the Library A to Z materials, and I could add in some of the quotes about libraries that I’ve been jotting down for years.

Library A to ZI’ve hummed and hawed and eventually decided to do it. I’m well ahead with the travel posts, and I’ve prepared a few for this which will get me through the first week. I’ve made my mind up too late to join in with the official Theme Reveal last Monday, so this is my own, personal little reveal. From 1st April I will be blogging about the benefits of libraries from A to Z – please come and join me and add your own thoughts.

To start us off, here are three of the more famous quotes about libraries:

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. Jorge Luis Borges.

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero.

I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book. Groucho Marx.

What do you think is good about libraries?

  1. What a great idea! I love libraries and bookstores… I think it’s just the feel and the smell of new books that makes me want to stay for hours.

    Good luck with these double postings!


  2. Howdy! TWO blogs for April AtoZ Challenge?? Wow! I’m following you here and on your travel one, also. is my Theme Reveal post, although hardly any surprise to BooksYALove followers.

    Happy AtoZ

  3. Hi just popped over from A-Z challenge, I cheat a little as rather than following the next five on the list I pick out the nearest five WP sites and I was lucky enough to scroll over your blog as one of those I will be following this month and probably long beyond, looking forward to your posts 😀


    1. Thanks Paula – I look forward to sharing posts with you. I’m quite random about following (especially as I’ve entered two blogs this year) but I know what you mean about looking for WP – it’s so much easier to manage commenting.


I'd love to hear what you think!
