Reading locations-I finally decided to brave the horrible smoky smell and read outside. I was out there for about 40 minutes before it became unbearable. Then I went inside.

What is the name of your local library? What city is it located in? William E. Anderson Library of Penn Hills in Penn Hills PA, near Pittsburgh
How often do you go to the library? If you're a regular, do the staff know you? I go there maybe twice a week. I've been going to the library forever. A few weeks ago one lady told me how neat it is that she knew me from when I went to the childrens' section!
Do you browse while you're there or just pick up items you have placed on reserve? I usually just pick up books. I've been trying more recently to browse some too.
What is your favorite thing about your local library? I love how it is new. It smells new. The layout is great.

My little sister decded she wanted to join in a little bit of read-a-thon fun. She joined me reading a Lemony Snicket book outside. She read 48 pages. Here is what Alyssa has to say (exactly how she wrote it. She's nine.)

A part of it was too predictable. I am reading a series of unfortanet events by Lemony Snicket. I am on the 7th book of like 13. The on I am reading now is called the Vile Village. The Village is called UFD. It is about three children who's parents died in a fire and left a fortune. The first gardian they went to was Count Olaf. Who really wants the fortune! He has a tatoo of an eye on his ankle and a unibrow.
