Six-Word Memoirs

A bookstore in Blytheville, Ark., is celebrating its anniversary by soliciting six-word memoirs of customers’ experiences in the store. The owner based the idea on Ernest Hemingway’s famous six-word short story “For sale: Baby shoes, Never worn.”

It is a common belief among professional writers that the shorter a piece is, the harder it is to write.

So, since there is a long week-end coming up, let’s borrow the concept and see what those who love libraries can compose about their experiences. Here is my attempt: “Will never know all it holds.”

Share your six-word library memoirs here.

Have a good Labor Day weekend!
