…it is SO big.
You other readers can’t deny
When a book comes in with a bitty typeface and it’s all up in your space –
You get hooked, wanna curl up quick
‘Cause you notice that book was thick
With information got you raring
I’m booked and I can’t stop staring
Oh pages, I wanna flip right through you
Look at your pictures
My librarian tried to warn me
But that twist now made the plot so thorny!
Ooh, paperback or hardcover
You say you wanna be a book lover?
Well, use me, peruse me
‘Cause I’m a book club groupie
I’ve read books on dancin’
I’ve read about romancin’
And yet, I bet,
There are some I haven’t got to yet
Good mysteries and horror
My librarian lets me borrow
Take the average bookworm and ask over lunch
What books are gonna pack a punch
Bestsellahs! (Yeah!) Sellahs! (Yeah!)
Has your best friend got a book? (Um, yeah!)
Tell ‘em to read it! (Read it!) Read it! (Read it!)
Read that big ol’ book!
Thanks to the Hillsdale Free Public Library for inspiring today’s post with last week’s sign (and a nod to his eminence, Sir Mix-A-Lot) Here’s to all of you readers out there who want books “real thick and juicy.” Over here at Workman, on this fine Friday, we want to remind all of you who “wanna get the fiction (or nonfiction) on” to beat the summer heat by heading to your nearest library and curling up with a good read and air conditioning.
Happy National Book Week!
