Decisions, Decisions - What's a Montana Bibliophile to do?
It is time for new plates on the vehicle in my new state, and there are actually a few choices for the discerning bibliophile. The standard plate is nice and simple, which I like for a standard plate. However, for a bibliophile who can't practically drive a bookmobile (*at this time*), it's nice to personalize the wheels a little to tell strangers how much I love books.
The first is of a grandma in a chair reading to two kids. This plate supports something to do with old fogeys. I mean that in the nicest possible way, perhaps even nicer. I do like this a lot. Is it the only license plate to feature someone reading? The next is a little ho-hum from the Montana libraries. Open book with the state as a cover. Not bad, but a little boring. The last supports the Montana Newspaper Association, and features a printing press! A little hard to see, but I think it's a Washington hand press, which if you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I love newspaper history and printing presses too. That leaves us with quite the quandary... What do you think? Which would you choose?
