Needful Things | Stephen King

#happyplace Big Chicken Barn books in Ellsworth, Maine. The entire upstairs is crammed full of used books, downstairs is also antiques/general weirdness. They must've had a big summer, some of the shelves were a little depleted and aside from serials of the Green Mile they had no Stephen King paperbacks (still a lot of hardcover though, he and his fam have a special section in the Maine room).

Moved my twin boys into their dorm yesterday. I'm officially an empty nester. 😐 Hubby and I wandered downtown and it warmed my heart to find this adorable bookstore. ❤️🤓 #bookstore #happyplace

Is there a place that could ever compete with the library? #HappyPlace

Just picked up The Tiger at Midnight and Foolish Hearts and I can‘t wait to read both of them.

wanderinglynn What is cli-fi? 6mo

IamIamIam @wanderinglynn Kind of like sci-fi but with devastating effects to the climate, like a weather related or disease ridden future. If you haven't read this, I highly suggest it. I didn't expect to really like it that much but I absolutely fell in love!!! 6mo
Cinfhen Cli Fi stands for Climate Fiction- it‘s a subgenre where climate change is part of the story‘s plot @wanderinglynn 6mo
Cinfhen And echoing @IamIamIam recommendation!!!! Station Eleven is EXCELLENT @wanderinglynn (edited) 6mo
wanderinglynn Thanks @IamIamIam @Cinfhen ☺️ So many sub-genres these days, it‘s hard to keep track. And I did love Station Eleven. 👍🏻👍🏻 6mo
4thhouseontheleft I have a winter prompt leftover too, I‘m sure we‘ll both get to it eventually! 😂😂 6mo
IamIamIam @4thhouseontheleft LOL, so many books, so little time! 😉 #wegotthis 6mo

Ugh. I just really don‘t like Fred as a character. I hate that two of the last five chapters are his. 👎🏻 #RantingOnASaturday

HOWEVER, the views out my windows are gorgeous! Dogwoods and azaleas are in bloom! #HappyPlace

Crazeedi Beautiful!!!❤ 6mo
Megabooks @Crazeedi Thank you!!! 😊😊💕💕 6mo

My #HappyPlace is probably my personal library. It‘s been a slow process organizing things (we‘ll just ignore the books I keep ordering, which has stalled actually putting books away). But, I just love gazing at the shelves. So many stories! #Library30

Librarybelle Thank you so much, @398.2 and @erinreads ! @Crazeedi ...I think this is the first time anyone said I was envy invoking! Haha! It‘s a work in progress 6mo
Crazeedi @Librarybelle 😁🤨😉💖 6mo
Librarybelle @Crazeedi I should say the library is a work in progress! I just reread my comment...I really shouldn‘t multitask. 6mo
Crazeedi @Librarybelle that's funny! You could actually be a real library! You may have more books than some small rural ones do!! 6mo
Librarybelle @Crazeedi Haha...I probably do! 6mo
DivineDiana A dream! Fantastic! ❤️ 6mo

What an awesome book/series this was! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I‘m using this as my #booked2019 #happyplace because I just love a great YA fantasy series like this, with awesome world building, characters, action, magic, light romance! And the audio with multiple narrators was top notch! So I was definitely in my happyplace listening to this! That‘s a wrap for Winter, now on to Spring.

Jeralyn This is one of my very favorite book series (if not my favorite, but it makes me feel guilty to just pick one series over all the others:)) 6mo
Cinfhen Congrats on wrapping up winter!! 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Great job on the prompt and the season! 6mo
MommyOfTwo I loved these books too! 6mo
