Books, books, books.
I am surrounded by books whether it is in my living room, bedroom, office or even in the little apartment over the garage where I store my books for my Little Free Library. They seem to be everywhere and my husband might even suggest that they are taking over my life and our house.
But that’s okay because they bring me and so many others joy.
I went to restock the Little Free Library last week as I like to do. I like to rotate books in and out and since The Whistlestop Market where it is located is going to be closed for a month I wanted to check on it and make sure it was stocked. I suspect it won’t be as busy but it was a good time to trade some things out.
I pulled out a donated book that had appeared recently. A book that I personally loved and know that a lot of others love as well.
As I was leafing through it before I stacked it on my library bookshelf I saw a paper inside the front cover.
How wonderful is it that someone donated their well loved book to a Little Free Library? I absolutely love this note and that the writer took the time to pass on the love. THAT is what Little Free Libraries are all about, my friends. Sharing the love.
As I leafed through some other donations a picture fell out of one of the books and I laughed and laughed.
I have absolutely no idea who donated the book that this fell out of but it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that someone took a picture of three men at what might be a wedding. The back of the heads picture needs no explanation from me.
My Little Free Library is booming and I have great plans to put up a few more but I have lacked execution on that. One day I will get it together.
What do you think about my cards that I am now sticking inside the books for bookmarks? Check out my Little Free Library Facebook page. I am always posting book related things on it and often share free e-books as well.
