I love the library in Longmont, Colorado, the nearest city to where I live. It has a great selection of books; it is in a terrific network of libraries that enable me to get just about anything via loan that the library doesn't hold; it has dozens of Great Courses on CD plus loads of audio books; it hires friendly people; and is one of my favorite places.
However, I've always felt a bit badly that the village I live in doesn't have a bookstore, library, or even branch library...until now. We just got our own LittleFreeLibrary and it is adorable. I stopped by on my morning walk earlier this week to donate a copy of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and to pick out a book for myself. I ended up with The Broker, by John Grisham.
This will be my first Grisham novel. I've always liked lawyer shows, starting with The Bold Ones: The Lawyers back when I was a kid, and I loved LA Law, and now The Good Wife, and most recently Suits. But, I haven't read many, or any, lawyer-based novels, so this should be fun.
I don't really need more books on my TBR shelves--I have enough reading material to last for awhile and I keep on finding new titles/authors via my book blogging friends. But the way I see it, I have to support my neighborhood LittleFreeLibrary or else it will starve and die, and it's too cute to let that happen.
