Jim's All Excited Aboo Something, But We're Not Sure We Get the Concept

OK, Jim is all excited, becoo Jenn introduced him to something called the Lye-berry. We asked if it was all blue like a Blue-berry caaaandy, or red like a pretty Rasp-berry caaaandy, but Jim said no, it wasn't any color at all. It was full of books. Apparently, Jim went there and they gave him books, and then instead of showing them his 'Merican 'Spress Card, he showed them his...

What was the name of that thing again?

Thanks, Noel "Snowflake" Chompsky.

He showed them his Lye-berry card.

We're glad Jim is happy, but we don't really get it. If Jim used his 'Merican 'Spress Card, he could order on-line, the books would come without ever having to leave his house, and he could keep them forever. But with this Lye-berry card, Jim has to go out to get the books, and then--and this it that part that really confooses us--he has to go back out to give the books back.

*much shrugging of shoulders of Bears*

Does anyone understand why you would use a Lye-berry card instead of a 'Merican 'Spress Card? Please 'splain.

OK Bye

all i can say, is that if you do try to keep the books, they don't let you take out other ones fromn the lye-berry. and then a mean person calls you on the phone on sunday afternoons and says that you owe them two hundred dollars. meh.

Dear Bears,
The reason the lye-berry is sooooo good is because Jim saves money by using the library and the more money he saves by not buying books the more money he can spend buying caaaandy!
OK, hope that helped.

We think we like the Lyb-berry near ikcUl (more room for caaaandy!) and the Lye-berry near leone (more money for caaaandy!) more than the Lyb-berry near Julia, with the mean person that calls you on Sunday. When mean people call us, we just let the phone ring, and don't answer.

OK Bye

Jim got out a book on China: The New Chinese Empire by Ross Terrill; and two books for Jenn: The Way the Crow Flies by Ann-Marie MacDonald, and Sushine by Robin McKinley.

Hi Bears!

I just wanted you to know that your post inspired me to go to the lye-berry and get 4 books today! I had totally forgotten about all those free books. Good thing I have Bears to remind me.*nods*

Now I have too many books to read. Ack! That's almost as good as having too much caaaandy!!
