November 1, is Book Lovers Day; a day for all of us who love books, to have an official excuse to have our nose buried in one.
I love the smell of books, new or old – doesn’t matter. Even my cat loves the smell of books and sniffs them all over when I bring a ‘new’ one home from the store. I like holding the book in my hands and turning the pages.
I’m not terribly fond of those newfangled tablets, though granted, I haven’t had much experience with them.
Why not drop by the Barriere Library and check out a book or two, or three. They have all sorts of different books in at any time, and there is usually something for everyone. How-to books, cook books and craft books, history books and novels, mystery books and sci-fi, and lots and lots of children’s books. And remember to check out the book sale bins… books are only 25 cents each, which is an awesome deal.
New releases just in include the following titles:
Rose Harbor In Bloom, by Debbie Macomber – In Cedar Cove three women, innkeeper Jo Marie Rose, young Annie Newton, and high-powered businesswoman Mary Smith, make peace with their pasts as they boldly welcome their futures.
