NEW YEAR, NEW BOOKS

Happy New Year y’all!

I have made my “To Be Read List” for 2019, including the book I’m currently reading: Smart Women by Judy Blume. I’m planning to keep them next to my nightstand so that hopefully I can stay focused. I hope to finish these sixteen books well before the end of the year, so that I can add more to my list.

As y’all know my favorite types of books are mysteries/cozy mysteries but I did try to add a couple from other genres.

I’m excited for the New Year, and I’m especially excited for my new Bookstagram account!

 

Be a Friend of the Library!

Happy Saturday y’all!

I am so excited, because yesterday I joined Friends of the Library here in Charleston. I have been wanting to for a while, but I finally did it yesterday at one of their book sales they hold each year at a local library. It was just $20 to join, and it goes toward such a good cause. I even got a free book when I joined, which for me was already worth the $20.

It was an awesome day, because I got twenty books for just $52! I got a few novels I had been wanting to buy but just couldn’t pay full price for (books can get expensive) and I also got a few that I wouldn’t normally buy myself, like some kids’ Christmas books that are classics and some books that go along with the Harry Potter Series.

I love the local library; it has always been my happy place since I was a kid, and I hope that they never become a thing of the past. Groups like Charleston Friends of the Library help to promote the local library and the different programs it has. The goal is to enhance the programs and things the library has in place, by donating time and money.

If it’s something you’d be interested in but you live in a different area, you should definitely check to see if your local library has a similar program. And if you don’t have a library card, well you better go get one of those too!

Have a great day!
