    I just finished A Rose by the Door by Deborah Bedford. It was a wonderful book. I do belong to my library.

    tmg--good for you!!!

    I just finished "Just Breathe" by Susan Wiggs--it was awesome. I just started "The Horseman's Daughter" by the same author--so far I love it. Amazing writing!!

    I haven't read a novel for pleasure in so long--it feels wonderful--even better--to know there's a good book waiting when I'm ready.

    Our local library is quaint and cozy. I went there when in elementary school and on--took my kids there since they were babies--and still go. I love that I can put any book on hold in the whole system and it will be delivered to this library. I don't buy books anymore--well, fiction for me anyway. I still buy books for my profession and for students.

    Next week, my class is walking to the library close to the school--just to make sure everyone's library cards are updated and ready to go and to discover where the young adult books are! :wink:

    I could hang out in a library all day.

    I have difficulty reading because of my eyes, but I love listening to audio tapes. I have a large collection plus borrow them from the library.

    Currently I am listening to "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen.

    I am reading The House on Olive Street by Robyn Carr. It is a good book as are all of hers. This one was a bit hard to get into for some reason. Moving along better now. Yes I do belong to the library. Ours is very small compared to the one in the town we moved from. I spend a lot of time reading.

    I love to read. Our book club just read "A Reliable Wife". We will be getting together Thursday to discuss it. I am also reading "Mudbound" which is really well written. I like to buy my books but I do carry a library card and stop in there. My daughter is an English major in her final year. She is hosting book club this month and I am eager to see what she will suggest for next months book.

    The library is my best friend!! :D Seriously, I love to go and have my whole life. Thanks, Craftybear, for starting this thread. I LOVE talking about books and getting new titles.
    I just got 12 audiobooks. They are great for just about any activity I engage in.
    I am reading and listening to several at the moment :)

    If I hadn't been a nursing major I would have been an English major. I loved my Humanities courses, especially b/c nursing courses are really tough!! It was such a nice change from all the anatomy and physiology of everything :mrgreen:

    I just finished, "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton. It was an excellent book and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books. Since I lie in the back of beyond - 20 miles from the closest grocery and department stores, I'm very happy my wonderful library is only 9 miles away!
