When I was young, going to the library almost everyday of the summer was a ritual. Almost like going to the pool.
Except my days were filled with the adventures of Nancy Drew, the Sweet Valley High twins, the Baby Sitters Club girls and the Baudelaire children.
My sister and I, in fact, were always trying to “out-read” each other every summer, but, of course, I always won.
And, we had ALL of the prizes to prove it: coupons to the zoo, the Horse Park and Snappy Tomato Pizza, stickers, stamps, bookmarks, Frisbees, cups and new books.
