ruined by reading

It is 4:36 PM Thursday late afternoon. It is raining and it is very cold. Maybe the rain will turn into ice tonight. I am extremely tired so I will get right to the point. This afternoon I covered for someone at our local library used books store The Book Nook. While I was there I bought some used books for our library. I will make a list of the used books I bought today to add to our library-
