I just want something for throwing books in when I go to the library. I need something fairly big, since I pick up books for my kids and children's books can be quite tall and wide. Sometimes my book load can be kind of heavy if quite a few books on my wait list come in at once, so I am leaning more towards canvas bags. I saw a couple of totes on the Target web site that were OK, but nothing that really jumped out at me. I don't mind something cutesy, since my daughter(almost 6) usually goes with me and likes to carry the bag of books if it's not too heavy. So if it had kitties all over it she would love it I have been using the plastic bags the library provides until the handles get too weak, and it finally hit me(duh! moment) that I should just buy a tote.
