|Current books in my own library on crafting that I am reading.|
Do you ever wish you could know a little more
about how a person ticks?
Thus...I am sharing a part of my private life with you today!
|My current books from the library.|
Is anyone else having trouble posting photos that have been positioned right, but when you put them on Blogger they go back to the original way they were taken?
First of all...
I keep a notebook with me so when I am at places and see a book
I want to get from the library I can jot it down.
I then keep notes to the side for when I've ordered it from the library, and if it is a book I want to purchase for my library.
Before doing this I used to always try to 'remember'....
what book I saw and wanted...yeah right!
The memory just ain't what it used to be.
Another thing I have come to adore is
If you aren't apart of this and love to read,
I highly recommend it!
You can keep track of books online you see that you want to read,
record and review books you have read,
hook up with 'reading' friends,
and because of the lists you create,
Good Reads makes a list of Recommendations just for you.
And last but not least,
I adore my new Kindle Fire HD the Guitar Man
bought for me before he left.
I never thought I'd like to read a book on a screen,
but it's been great!
Especially for times waiting around for something,
I can pop my little Kindle out of my purse and
catch up on some reading, instead of hauling books around.

I downloaded their app onto my device
and each day they have a list of all kinds of FREE books
you can download!
Here is my own little reading nook by the fireplace...
And I have to tell you,
if you've never been to a used bookstore you are missing out.
We have a fantastic one here in Nashville called McKay Books.
A HUGE delicious store to get one's self lost in.
I turn in books from my own library that I don't want anymore for
store credit or cash there.
Yesterday I went downtown to our favorite place to have breakfast together...
that man that used to be here..hrumpf!
Provence Bread Cafe.
Ordered their omelet with artisan cheese, had them put some spinach in it,
served with fresh fruit and artisan bread toast,
and sat and read.
Next door to this place is the Bookman Bookwoman used bookstore.
I can find more books in this tiny little place that I am looking for to buy secondhand,
than anywhere else.
Yesterday I found the King Arthur's Flour Cookbook for 1/2 price.
I also sit at Books A Million and spend hours reading and writing.
One of my top 5 things to do.
And if I have the energy, I will go across town to Brentwood and hang out at the lovely Barnes and Noble. That is if I want to fight traffic.
My latest finds at BAM
Loving both of these reads!!
So there you have it ladies....
And after this post,
I think I'm just going to head down to BAM now to get a little inspiration,
a pick me up with a latte' before I really dive into my day!
Happy Reading you all!
And I would love to know what your favorite book of late has been!
