Library Visit

I think one of the best things you can do for your mind, your family, and your community is get a library card for the local library and use it!

I go to the library as often as I can (read: once a week) to peruse even if I don't check out a book (but let's get real, I always do).

I sit on the floor and spread books out around me and flip through.
(yeah I'm that big of a nerd)

After all, it's free education and learning and knowledge and wisdom and so much more- and trust me, after college that "free education, etc" has a nice ring to it.

This week I returned:

"Franny and Zooey" by JD Salinger
SOOOO GOOOD! Review to come soon!

And I checked out:

"The Bell Jar"
By Sylvia Plath

"Bent, Bound, and Stitched: Collage, Cards, and Jewelry with a Twist"
by Giuseppina Cirincione (yay Italian!)

"Little Felted Animals"
By Marie-Noelle Horvath

"beading for the first time"
By Ann Benson

"Guide to Crochet: The Chicks with Sticks"
By Nancy Queen and Mary Ellen O'Connell

For those of you in Knox County, TN check out for information on how you can get a FREE library card for books, DVDs, CDs and more!

Any suggestions for next weeks reading list?


  1. I love The Bell Jar!! And all of Sylvia Plath, of course. I'm reading The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan right now, and it's a real thinker. Check it out if you haven't yet. I also recommend picking up some Margaret Atwood novels. All of them are great reads. :)

  2. YOu know that I am a fan of the library! I am reading The Girl Who Played with Fire....I love it! We saw the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, it is the first of the trilogy by the Stieg Larsson, it is super! I sent you the hummus recipe and some more Aldi info!
