The things kids say.


I was chatting to a grandmother today who was looking after her grandson. I was at work. Just general conversation about how marvellous libraries are these days with what they offer to their members and to the general public as a whole, when she told me something that made me laugh out loud and run to the desk to get a pen and paper so that I would not forget.

Her grandson, we shall refer to him as Master 8 as he is eight years old, said to her today the following classic comment: “I’m having a book crisis.”

A book crisis.
