My Berlin Kitchen


The latest buzz among my bookish friends is this great read is completely swoony

If you follow Luisa's blog, The Wednesday Chef, you'll already know why. I know what you're thinking: a popular new release like My Berlin Kitchen will take a year on hold at the library.

Nope. 

I know a secret and I'm going to share it with you, because I love you and want you to read this book in October with me. 

Sign up for Wowbrary. It's free, it's easy, and best of all, you'll be alerted by email once a week on new books, music, cookbooks, and movies coming to your local library. 

Yes - you can actually put new releases on hold, even before the library gets them. I know, somebody pinch me, this can't be real. The library is magic, sweet friends.


All you need is your library card.

A Simple Sock-Puppeting Solution



Have you heard about the author that was sock-puppeting his own books on Amazon while anonymously trashing competitive authors? 



Have you ever purchased a book based on reviews, read it, and wondered why it was given such favorable praise?



Did you know that authors can buy book reviews?




I have a swoony solution. Borrow books from the library first. 



Most of the great reads on my home shelves are purchased from the library book sale table, and only after I've read them



No-Man's Lands (I love this book)

They are precious memories for me, like photos of my family. Mementos of time spent with characters and countries I love. Meaningful beauty times infinity.

When you borrow beauty from the library, there is no buyers remorse. You can check out books, movies, cookbooks, magazines and my favorite: music. Pairing the various genres into themes can make every visit to the library an exciting adventure. 


In a world where we are constantly being told to spend, spend, spend, the library welcomes us to share, share, share.
