I’ve found one at last!!
And to my utter shame, it was only four houses down from where I’m currently staying. How did I not notice this for THREE months?!?!?!
Shame, shame, shame.
But I was overjoyed because taking a few books on loan from this wonderful little gem does NOT count against my book buying diet! HA!
Especially since I have six books (to the three I took) that are ready to be put back in there for others to enjoy. And I’ll probably also return the three I borrowed, as well.
So here’s my score from the Little Free Library:
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Prey by Michael Crichton
Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
I find it odd that with all the children’s books I read, I haven’t yet read Because of Winn-Dixie. It’s only 100 pages long or so and with a LOT of space between lines, so why haven’t I read it? Or maybe I did as a child and just forgot. Let’s be honest, here. I started reading at a young age, but didn’t start keeping track of everything I read until recently. I’m sure there are a lot of repressed memories of books flying around this old noodle of mine.
I think these Little Free Libraries are a genius way to get more people reading who don’t have access to a library or book store. I’m so glad to be staying in a town (until November) that has not one, but TWO, of these libraries.
What do you think? Have you heard of Little Free Libraries? Have you used one? Which of these books have you read, if any?
Happy writing! And reading!

“I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and type of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.”
