Saturday was Independent Bookstore Day. I try to get as many books as I can from the library but I decided that it really was my responsibility to go to my favorite little local book store The Book Bin and pick up a few books. Browsing in a book store is a quick way for me to find some instant happiness.
I have been looked for Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward for awhile. It was on a book list I saw awhile ago and had added to my Goodreads list but hadn’t found it. I am looking forward to reading it! I am also trying to add a little more poetry to my life and Bright Dead Things by Ada Limon caught my eye. I also bought three copies of Language Arts by Stephanie Kallos because buying books to give to friends is more fun than buying them for yourself!
Last, I found a book for Taelin that I am really excited about! Do you remember Choose Your Own Adventure books? I used to love them when I was younger and I found a whole series of them that are part chapter book/part picture book. I am hoping that she will get hooked and end up loving them as much as I do!
If you have a local book store, go check them out and buy a book or two!
