Carnegie's Maid: A Novel | Marie Benedict
post image

I always have an audiobook in the car for unexpected traffic jams. Like today, where the wait time is 40+ minutes just to drop off donations for the semi-annual rummage sale. On the plus side, their book tent is set up like a store, complete with wood shelves and everything sorted by genre and author. I'll be back on sale day!

Megabooks Wow! That‘s fancier than ours! 1mo

I love inscriptions in old books. I bought this navy history book (1943 edition) at a library sale this weekend and found a dedication from the author. Does anyone still write in books before gifting them?

CrowCAH Wow this is amazing! ❤️ it!!! I usually don‘t write in books when I give them. 2mo
LeahBergen So cool! 👏🏻👏🏻 2mo
DivineDiana Sometimes, if it is a special book. I do love when I find used books with inscriptions. 2mo

The treadmill at the gym overlooks a donut shop. I'm hoping this book will distract me, but with 'bite' in the title, I'm back to thinking about donuts. 🍩🍩🍩
