Pokemon Go at the Library

I know this is a book blog but I have to make a very difficult confession. It is one that I am almost embarrassed to admit.  I LOVE POKEMON GO! Yes, it is true.  I have caught Pokemon Go fever. I blame my husband.

The one and only time I won a gym battle
One of the reasons that I have been enjoying it so much is the fact that the library where I work is a Pokestop.  This means that every 5 minutes, I can visit the Pokestop and refresh my supply of Pokeballs, potions, and various other things needed to play the game.  Here are some of the things I have caught since I started playing.   Please note, these were caught during break time or while preparing a Facebook post on the library Facebook page.

Look who showed up for work! Drowzee

You never know when you will see an Oddish shopping at Target

Someone keeps on putting Lures out at the library where I work and I catch the weirdest stuff
 Soon, I will return to my regular book reading and blogging, but I had to let you know that I did get sucked into this crazy new game.  Gotta catch 'em ALL!!!!
