Friday Wisdom – Books

Well, this week I mentioned I was building a bookcase, so here is everything I know about books:

I’m reading a great ScFi book on antigravity – I can’t put it down.

I was thinking of writing a book about sinkholes, but the project fell through.

My friend is writing a book about Mount Everest. He says it will be a cliffhanger.

I was clearing the books off my old bookcase when a book fell on my head – I only have my shelf to blame.

Did you know that most writers are cold – they’re surrounded by drafts.

The librarian told me he was going to retire next month. He said it was time to start a new chapter.

I was looking for books in the library when I slipped and fell down. Turns out I was in the non-friction section.

Burglars never break into libraries because they’re afraid of getting a long sentences.

I saw a pack of dogs running after the mobile library – guess they were chasing their tales.

Just found out that someone stole my thesaurus. I’m at a loss for words.

Math books are always sad – so many problems.

I asked the librarian if she had any books on how to fix automatic transmissions. She said that they only had manuals.

I’m working on a book on wind power – currently it’s in my drafts folder.

There was one third off sale at the book store – I got a copy of The Lion, The Witch

I never go anywhere without my atlas – I’d be lost with out it.

    They’re not the most sophisticated jokes, but I really enjoyed the anti-gravity one, and the lost atlas. Thanks for getting the weekend off with a smile!
