Whenever I let too much time pass between visits, I forget how much I love the library. Amazon.com, on the other hand, loves when I forget it. So does Barnes & Noble, Tattered Cover, and now, my new local indie, Talking Leaves Books.
Having just moved into a new neighborhood — er, county — er, state, if you don’t count that 6-month little stop-over in NYC, I had to get a new library card. Downtown Buffalo has a really super cool library so I was all excited about that, but also, I found a branch right down the street! Like, even closer than my favorite Greek diner which we’ve already hit up about 5 times this month! In fact, I have to walk past the library to get to the diner!
Why, it’s utter genius!
So Alex and I took a lovely mid-afternoon walk down Elmwood Avenue, found the library, and signed up for new cards.
And now I have a bunch of new books for my ever-increasing to-be-read pile:
- The Year My Sister Got Lucky – by Aimee Friedman
- The Nature of Jade – by Deb Caletti
- Lessons from a Dead Girl – by Jo Knowles
- Little Brother – by Cory Doctorow
- The Earth, My Butt, and other Big Round Things – by Carolyn Mackler
YA books. Free. Right down the street (on the way to the diner). What more can a girl ask for?
