This Week at the Little Free Library

Since the snow’s melted, it’s been a busy time for the Little Free Library. People are dropping off armloads of books, and other people are coming over to borrow them or simply browse. It’s fun to check it out every day and see who’s left what.

Can’t seem to keep enough children’s books, which makes me glad. I remember so well the joy of learning to read (even Dick and Jane and Tip and Mitten were exciting to me) and I’m glad to know other kids are feeling the same. It was the very beginning of a lifetime of reading thrills.

Here’s a sample of what’s available today:

Tender at the Bone by food writer Ruth Reichl (actually, two copies available)
Mac OS8 Instruction Book (yours free!)
The Great Santini by Pat Conroy
The Great Orion Mystery by Bauval & Gilbert (sphinx related, I think)
Eat the Rich by PJ O’Rourke, which sat on my bookshelf for years, so I’m giving it up
The Red Hunter by William F. Buckley Jr (based on the life of Sen Joe McCarthy)
Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss (One woman’s journey toward Godliness)
Women & Money by Suze Orman, which I should probably read but won’t…

A very nice person dropped off a bunch of books for small kids, including a series of Thomas Train ones, which I expect will go quickly.

What are you reading these days? Come on over and have a look. You might find your next favorite author here.

    I think it is so great that you’re getting that kind of traffic to the library! It looks like a nice assortment circulating through that cute box.
