Look what I found on my morning walk on Saturday! I am not sure when it was 'built' as I have not taken this particular route on a walk since last summer, and I was unable to find it on the Little Free Library map, but I was excited to find one (kind of) close to my neighborhood. I returned on Sunday morning (as you can see a grey, dreary day--the sun never came out and the wind was an unwelcome guest all day long) to add a few books to the selection. Most books on offer are juvenile literature and a few mass market novels for adults. I shared a few more novels and a child's board book that were in boxes waiting to go to a second hand shop. I think I'll have to make a habit of walking that way more often.
I still would love to have one of these of my 'own' (rather, have one by my house and 'curate' its collection)!
Speaking of library books . . . I just picked up a few new ones myself--from the free 'big' library!
Stefanie recently wrote about Peter Wohlleben's The Hidden Life of Trees. I already knew I wanted to read the book, so that was the little nudge to move it to my bedside pile. One blurb calls it "at once romantic and scientific, beautifully articulating his personal relationship with the trees he has dedicated his life to."
I've already started Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing and am liking it very much. While I had seen it on lots of favorites lists at the end of last year, it is the possible inclusion of this title on the (very soon to be announced) Baileys Longlist that made me finally reach for it.
Greer Macallister's Girl in Disguise just sounds like great fun. The novel was inspired by the first female detective in the mid-1850s.
And lastly another thrillerish novel by Caite Dolan-Leach called Dead Letters about twin sisters, one of whom is dead but has left behind a trail of clues about her 'disappearance'. Spooky!
My posts this week might be on the wonky side as my home PC is in its last gasps of air. At the least I might be posting but the posts will be on the very short side (it is freezing on me every other word). I am hoping I can finally buy a new one as soon as my little tax return comes in.
