Caption Contest – Winner is

I meant to do this earlier this week, but I found that on days when I have to earn table money, I can’t get any blogging done. the 2 hour trip home involves traffic on 5 highways and I am pretty wasted when I get here. Energy is all.

These are our entries:

• That’s not what I meant by saying that books make an impression on children
That playpen needs to go on the recall list
And secondly, I continue with my argument for the greater use of E-Books
Perhaps the library should switch to E-Books

Books are warmer than Grandma’s quilt.
Sleeping with books brings sweet dreams.

OK, maybe there IS such a thing as too many books!

I was amused by many of these, and if the Cupid/Bookseller quote was shorter it would be perfect. But it’s my contest and I always choose the one that mak
es me laugh the loudest.

the winner is:
