Summer reading has graced our presence once again. As we reach the midway point, everyone is getting just a little bit tired, a little bit complacent with the whole ordeal.
|So last year.|
Kids are thinking, "Reading, woo hoo. You mean if I read for six straight hours I can get one of those weird Chinese paper yo-yo's that break after a second? Awesome." Parents are thinking, "Can't you just make one more macaroni banana cozie so mama can farm her watermelons on Farmville?" And librarians, well, we stopped thinking. Autopilot has stuck in and we are all reflex, "Book there. Please stop run now. Who want hear tale of cat and hat?" The librarian brain also has a cool Russian accent.
|I'll pause while you re-read that last bit and say, "Moose and squirrel," to get the accent right.|
I say we spice up this whole affair with a couple of shocks to the system. Something to get the parents saying, "You learned WHAT at the library!?" You know, community service. Hit the jump for the 6 Books You Should Totally Read Next Story Time.*
FTW. For. The. Win. All the way. The book is titled "The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories." I do not care if this is for kids, it looks like it should be and that counts. If you have the cajones to story time this bad boy, I bow to your librarian badassery. Your book cart runneth over.
why read This?
Dude, LESBIAN HORSES! I did not even know there were horse romance stories, much less homo... wait... is it still homosexual if it is a horse? I guess so. Eh, words. Although "equusexual" sounds kinda... there is no real way to end that sentence without sounding weird.
It sounds nice. There, now I am the weirdo for saying what we were all thinking.
*The author and website of this post assume you are not crazy and will not actually read any of these books at any event where children may be separated from their parents or a responsible adult.
