Weekword - Browse



This week Anne chose the word browse to inspire weekword participants. Visit Anne for a list of other weekworders.
First I have to confess I forgot I was a participant-busy week, going away tomorrow, etc, etc. So I had a think and decided on the supply teacher's friend-the acrostic poem. If you are a supply teacher you will know what I mean, if not you will probably be able to guess!
Anyway, I spent my coffee time when I got home composing two poems on the subject of browsing. Thank goodness poetry is not my profession. I have also included a few photos of some of my favourite types of browsing-book shops, second hand markets and interesting arty shops-this one is in Hastings. I am actually a bad browser because more often than not, I turn into a buyer!

Tomorrow is the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, hosted by Candace in Athens. If you want to join in mad hat fun there is still time-just pop over and let her know! I will be back later with my tea party post-a little early as I am off at the crack of dawn tomorrow on a short half term break. See you later!

Very good, I'd say! Of course I want to see the second one now.

I'm great at browsing, but very poor at resisting temptation.

P.S. It goes without saying that I adore the header!

validation word is "desserps"!

Like you, my browsing all too often turns into buying - so I need to remember your little poem!! Have a ggod holiday - hope the weather improves!! Love, Anne

I love browsing, second hand bookstores are my weakness though, i can't seem to leave without buying at least one book

Great poem! I have to admit that I am a bad browser. I always want everything I see so I try to stay away from stores that are too tempting.

Leave me in a second-hand bookshop and you've lost me for sure. I love browsing... and shopping. Liked your acrostic poems.

Browsing is good for visual stimulation.
