“Usually the recipe for a bestseller is to give people what they want. My challenge is and was: give them what they do not expect. Be severe with them. The world of media is full of easy answers, wash-and-wear philosophies, instant ecstasies, what-me-worry Epiphanies. Probably readers want a little more.”
― Umberto Eco

My husband is a carpenter working in some very upscale homes and took me to look at his latest job. This house is incredible! While he was closing up, I explored the library. This is a relatively powerful and respected financial leader in New England (the opposite of me😂) but our book tastes? Identical! I kept saying “I read that! I read that!” I‘ve found my new best book loving friend whom I‘ll never meet! 😂😂😂 Kind of like Litsy TBH! 😂😂😂

rwmg So husband says to homeowner, "Do you need someone to help you catalogue and expand your library?" 7mo
Readergrrl I have to admit @rwmg to being more than a little jealous: dark wood, fireplace, rolling ladder, huge soft leather chairs, with a floor to ceiling window looking out across the mountains, but most of the books were clearly well-loved and worn, lots of thrift and library sale books, very well loved children‘s books clearly from their own kids to children‘s books that must have belonged to the owners. Absolute heaven! 6mo
BooknerdsLife Wow! I‘d love to have books loving friends in real life like that with beautiful library at home so I could visit them all the time! 🤣📚 But I‘m grateful for all the books loving friends Ive met here on Litsy & on Instagram too 🤗💖💖📚 6mo

Cinfhen I MISS those days!!!!! 7mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen No libraries in Israel?? If so, that just seems so different!! 7mo
Cinfhen No, they have libraries but it kind of ends there. The selections in English are minimal and rather old, you can only check out 2 books (😳) on your account and there is no online requesting or interloan system in place. I spoke to a librarian and a lot has to do with publishing rights 😬🙄😣 7mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Wow! Two books, no online, no interlibrary loan. Smh! Get with it Israel!! I can imagine why they have a small English section. I‘m sure you hear many languages everyday in addition to Hebrew. I‘d miss American libraries, too! 7mo

1️⃣ What kind of library? The answer is different if it's a local library or a rare books library. As a patron of research libraries, I'd say I'd save whatever book I'm pouring over at that time.
2️⃣ Any Stephanie Meyer or Dan Brown book. Gleefully.
3️⃣ S'mores have chocolate.

Don‘t let a day go by without learning something. Every time you drive by a library and don‘t stop, it‘s like you‘re walking by a treasure chest you never open , to see what‘s inside.
