Library Day

West Jordan Library

After spending several years working in a public library and having constant access to all the books my heart could desire I’ve had to make it a regular habit to stop by my local library to get my fill. I wanted to give you all a little peek into my weekly ritual and the fabulous building I frequent. Since I tend to max out my request/hold list at all times there’s almost always something for me to pick up and for my husband’s sanity I try to always have a stack to return. This is the main branch of the Salt Lake County library, a gorgeous, spacious building that also houses an event center that gets used for a ton of youth programs, author readings, art and music displays and more. There’s always something going on. I like to spend a few minutes perusing the shelves to see what’s new, taking pictures of covers to add to my Goodreads queue when I get home and often picking  up an extra title or two that really jumps out at me.

After checking out my holds (I’m pretty sure I’m going to end up with back trouble due to my weekly load) I head home and jump right in. I update my Goodreads status, make a list of which books I plan to review and which I’ll just read for fun, and depending on the time I may start in on the actual reading.

Here’s this week’s haul.

Thoughts for a Winter’s Day

It’s definitely winter here and all I want to do is curl up with a good book and read until spring. C.S. Lewis summed up my thoughts perfectly.

What are you doing to stay warm this winter? And more importantly, what are you reading?!
