I finally found the library! Yeah, I know that sounds silly, but they moved in the summer (when we were away) and I just couldn’t find the adress they listed on the website (google maps isn’t all that acurate here). But two weeks ago, I suddenly saw them, right at the side of the road I drive on almost weekly, because it connects the two supermarkets I go to most frequently. That’s so great!
I usually get books on alternative medicine or regional history and stories from the library. They have a lot of books in their collection that are no longer for sale.
What I took home with me this time, top to bottom:
– in the 60’s a priest asked local people for stories about the past and lore. He wrote them all down without comments or analyzing. His books are such a great source!
– a book about menopause. I’m still trying to figure out some facts about that.
– the first book of our famous island herbalist. I bought the other one, but this one is out of print. I have borrowed this many, many times and I’m slowly copying the information in my notebooks.
– a book about the healing powers of water. Could be interesting if they don’t go over-the-top with the spiritual stuff (that’s an extremely fine line with me)
I think they also have a good selection of fiction, but I read a lot of novels on my e-reader, so I’m never really checked those out.
Since I know people will ask what fiction I’m reading: I’m on a Morgana Best binge – if you like cozy mysteries with a bit of paranormal, you should check her out. I just finished 18 (!) books in the Kitchen Witch series and now I’m binging her Vampire and Wine series. I also read Practical Magic and it’s prequel Rules of Magic, by Alice Hoffman. Yeah, there’s theme in my reading these days 😉

there is nothing as exciting as a library visit. I love our local library. It is really big and you can borrow from any library in the county (nice!!).
So glad you have found your library, yeah! Enjoy your reading which all sounds wonderful and my kind of book.
Those little boxes of books for books exchange are interesting. We have one in town, last time I looked it had romance novels and some mysteries. The library always has more books. Reading for knowledge is beneficial.
hurray for the library!
i used to take maddie and isaac all the time when they were home with me. i don’t go to the library here very often – i keep buying books (ebay and our thrift store are both places where i only spend a few dollars on a book) – so i have quite a few at home that i haven’t read yet.
if i ever get through my stack at home, maybe i will take a trip to the library!
the Morgana Best books sound fun. 🙂
have you read any fredrik backman?
