Man, I'm Broke Monday: The Bibliophile Has Needs, Too

I'm keeping this one short and sweet.  If you're a reader like I am, don't forget to use the library. Many systems have e-books available (even my tiny county has them now!), so you don't even have to leave home to get books without spending a fortune.

On my desk right this very second.
You can get books, magazines, newspapers, movies...and there are often toys and fun things for the kids, too.  For free.  And if you want just a quick visit, put an online hold on the book you want, and it'll be waiting for you! If you don't have online holds, start asking about one.  Libraries listen to their patrons. It's such a blessing to have great services like these.

Also, consider starting a book swap with friends. I'm a member of two such groups.  We get together every two months to share books we've been reading. I find it much less stressful than a formal book club, and you'll learn about books you've probably never heard of!  (Just don't bring books we all read in high school. No one will pick them up)  Plus, it's a great excuse to hang out with pals, eat snacks, and drink wine.

The real point of this post is to get you to join me over at Goodreads.  I love getting book suggestions from others, and the site makes it easy to follow your friends' reading habits.  Here's my profile.  Be my friend! Validate my existence!

  2. We go to the library once per week. I put books on hold all the time and I also happen upon books just by chance. Our system also has movies and music - so that's how I keep up (2-3years later) with all the cool kids!
