Last week I social distanced myself at the beach. It wasn‘t crowded and we had plenty of sunshine and reading time. It was bliss. This week I‘m home, but still reading! #AnIntrovertsParadise #FLGulfCoast

Andersonville | Edward M Erdelac

Saturday Librarian here. I live between 2 National Historic Sites, The Jimmy Carter NHS and Andersonville NHS. We have a display in our Library from Andersonville, which is a former Civil War prison, and current cemetery and POW Museum. I‘ve noticed a lot of students stopping at the display to read, watch, and view. It‘s great when we can use history to lead to knowledge.

Picked this up before heading to work. It is set in Kentucky, where I lived for 12 years. Looking forward to pulling the night shift with this in my hand.

I gifted myself a Kindle a few months ago, along with a subscription to Kindle Unlimited. I still have my print library books that I can‘t live without, but am finding myself using the Kindle more often. Anyone else experience the same?

TheEllieMo When I first got my Kindle, I used it almost exclusively, but after a while I started going back to physical books. Now my use depends on where I am and what I‘m doing. If I‘m on the move, I‘ll use the Kindle, but when I‘m at home or sitting in my favourite café, I prefer a physical book 3y
robinb I use both but probably my Kindle a bit more because I read a lot of ARCs from NetGalley. I like the portability of the Kindle but miss seeing the lovely colors of the covers (I have the Paperwhite...b&w). I also read at bedtime and find the Kindle easier because I'm not fighting to keep the pages open like I do with some new, stiff books. 3y
TheSpineView I really love my Kindle. I have a lot of physical books but I am running out of shelf space and I am starting to think of the environmental impact of all those books. 3y

Good morning Littens. I‘ve had a severe lack of reading, partly due to this guy. He sticks like glue. Added to that, my granddaughter has been in the hospital since late last week with a chest tube to drain fluid off her lungs. She may be facing surgery tomorrow to repair a small hole in her lung. She‘s only 3, but has been a trooper. Please send good thoughts for C. Thank you. It takes a Litten Village.

Chrissyreadit Sending many good thoughts!! Chest tubes are hard! Your granddaughter must be incredibly brave! ❤️ 3y
JoScho Oh no. Sending love and well wishes for that sweet girl. Hang in there. ❤️ 3y
AmyG Saying a prayer that all goes exactly as planned and that your granddaughter heals quickly . 🙏🏻 3y

My daughter and I have a tradition of picking a book and then gifting to each other. This year we choose a guided journal based on Becoming by Michelle Obama. Merry Christmas to us.

TrishB I got this too 👍🏻 3y
marleed What a great tradition. Two sisters and I live afar from each other. At the same time on 23Dec we each loaded $50 on our Starbucks cards (each sister valued at $25 worth of liquid goodness). Then we went into our own Starbucks! Maybe next year we should add a book to the equation! 3y
