Hardly education
All them books I didn't read
They just sat there on my shelf
Looking much smarter than me
-Modest Mouse, Education

InuYasha sat at the table with Kagome, looking around at all the library books. He had never seen anything like it! This room was the biggest he had ever been in and there were shelves full of books everywhere. Tables were scattered throughout the room as well, offering seclusion and a quiet place to read. He wondered where they all came from and what was in each one. He left the table to wander through the shelves, reading spines as he went. Pride and Prejudice. Shakespeare. Gray's Anatomy. Harry Potter. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Edgar Allen Poe. Twilight. Where the Wild Things Are. Stopping abruptly, one title in particular caught his attention. Grabbing the book off the shelf he hurried back to where he had left Kagome.

Kagome looked up at a grinning InuYasha. He thrust it at her, asking her to help him find others like it. Surprised, she left her studying to go to the card catalog center and find other books for her hanyou to read. Nine books later the couple sat back down at the table, Kagome to study, InuYasha to settle into his light reading.

The afternoon flew by and before they knew it the sun was going down. Kagome snapped her book shut and stretched in her chair. She had gotten in more studying than she had anticipated and was grateful for the stack of books that still seemed to enthrall InuYasha. Had she known a Choose Your Own Adventure book would make studying easier she would have bought him the entire collection ages ago.
