Flash 55-Books


“No more than five”, the librarian said, scanning her card. She runs home, the leaves scurrying along side, thinking about the books left behind. New places, words and faces all within her reach, five books at a time. Climbing the stairs, her shoulder aches under the weight. She hears the pages whispering in her ear.

Flash Fiction--a story in 55 words---for more see the g-man!

You just described my childhood.

I loved this! I love books, and can completely understand the excitement. I get it when I walk into a bookstore, a library, or even the home of someone with an impressive book collection.

Fun!

Thanks for doing Friday 55!
You can read mine right here.

Oh, yes. they do talk to you. Great 55. Thanks for coming by to see me so often.

Ronda--wasn't it amazing when you first learned to read? I couldn't get enough--thanks c

Janna--I've gone digital 'cause there is no more room in my house. Books just draw me in--whenever I travel I make it point of finding a local bookstore or museum and I am lost for hours--best-c

Hootin' Anni-it truly is love at first sight isn't? c

brian--books are one of my vices-shoes and purses fall way behind, but I digress--I am going to work on writing more this year and Flash 55 is a great way to wake up the writing flow. thanks for the encouragement-c

mike--thanks--it feels good to bring back those moments of pure joy-c

monkey man--thank you for the great writing that is why I keep coming back --that and the monkey music;-) c
