Front desk


I came out here at the library to work an hour evening shift at the front desk.

The first person who came to me at the front desk wanted to check out a book.

The book was called "The Front Desk".

We are in for a wild ride tonight!

The Front Desk is a Jfic novel by Kelly Yang about an immigrant kid who lives in a motel with her parents. When her parents clean the motel rooms she handles the front desk.

I actually read this book a year or two ago! 

I don't remember much of it. 

So why, you might wonder, am I telling you all about it?

I'm biding our time while I wait for one of those "wild ride" things to happen.



Would you like to hear about the weather while we wait?

Here are some random, boring shots of my point of view at the front desk. I just took these photos of a couple generic library patrons, with my phone, from the front desk, while I waited for something interesting to happen. On the computer you can actually see me working on this blog post! The second picture even shows the "So. Would you like to hear about the weather?" part!

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
