“Life is an enigma. We have to approach it not scientifically but poetically.”

LibrarianRyan Love that graphic. 1mo
LiterRohde @LibrarianRyan Thanks! The human body is such a scientific marvel that it is poetic. It‘s not just mechanics, it is beauty. At least that‘s what the graphic said to me! 1mo

So (as if I haven‘t bought enough books on this road trip already), I just happened to spot a Little Free Library when we were walking to a restaurant for dinner. Oops. 😆

I never feel bad about grabbing a book from these as I figure my “LFL Karma” is pretty good from the bags of books I‘ve donated to them over the years. Right??

Grrlbrarian Right! 14mo

Found this beauty at the Dollar Store! Any fans of Great Expectations who have read this? Sounds pretty interesting.


DGRachel I bought it last year but haven‘t read it yet. 1y
AlaMich I would be curious to hear your impression when you read it. I‘ve heard mixed things about it. 1y
batsy It was a good read, in a quiet kind of way. Not mind-blowing, but I did love having that backstory for Miss Havisham. 1y

Surprise #bookmail from @TheKidUpstairs ❤️ Thank you so much, Megan!! I am so excited about all of them and overwhelmed by your generosity!

Also, if anyone is curious, Yankee Candle claims this candle smells like Chris Evans. I don‘t know if that‘s true, but heaven help him if it is - I don‘t know how he can go out in public without being mauled. 😂 God Bless Captain America.

robinb I‘ll take Captain America in a pinch, but any that smell like Thor??!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
LauraBrook I like that scent even more now! 2y

GA_Bookworm07 Im way behind. But whos chris evans? And why does a candle smell like him. 2y
DGRachel @AvidBookWorm02 Chris Evans is the actor who plays Captain America in the Marvel movies. I‘m not sure how the candle thing started, but it seems to have roots in Tumblr with fans saying the candle smelled like him or how they expected him to smell (sexy man). Yankee Candle then turned it into a marketing campaign. If you Google “Chris Evans Yankee Candle” you can find more details. 😊 2y
DGRachel @robinb 😂😂 I don‘t know if they have Thor candles or not. I imagine they have something appropriately Nordic in their shops. 😂😂 2y
robinb @DGRachel sorry, I couldn‘t resist! 🤷🏻‍♀️ I prefer Thor but Captain America is nothing to sneeze at! 🙌💪🇺🇸 2y
GA_Bookworm07 id buy a thor one before a captain american one. Im sure its just a smell of axe cologne 2y
DGRachel @robinb If I‘m completely honest, I find Loki even more swoon worthy. But, I doubt I‘d say no to dinner with any of them. 😂 2y
robinb @DGRachel now that I think of it, I‘m not opposed to Loki either. Hmmm, even the Hulk wouldn‘t be bad as long as I didn‘t make him angry...😡....OK, I‘ll stop, I‘ll stop! 😊😂😂 2y
TheKidUpstairs Yay! I'm glad they arrived quickly. Happy Reading! 2y
Bradleygirl Make a Sebastian Stan one and I'm all in 😙👍 2y

Miss Havisham is the queen of white weddings 👰🏼 Years after being left after the alter she still wears her wedding dress and preserves the room where it was going to happen.

"Sprig embroidery on the bodice and along the edges of the sleeves. The neck and cuffs were trimmed with Bath lace. There was a delicate tracery of gold foil on the back of the dress. The miniature buttons were each painstakingly worked in silk."

Catherine Havisham looks forward to a #whitewedding that will never take place. This is a compassionate re-creation of the early life of one of literature's most symbolic characters. #rockinmay @Cinfhen

rohit-sawant This is quite interesting! 2y
