One of the things I miss most during our collective Covid-oh-pause is my local library. I’d gotten back into the delicious habit of a weekly visit to browse the stacks, wander, socialize, and select. Now, a pile of long-overdue books sits by the door, ready to be returned and exchanged for a new set. When? No one knows.

For now, I find comfort in the unread books on my own shelves, and the regular check-ins from the library via Facebook and email. This past week, in celebration of National Library Week, they suggested a BOOKSHELF SCAVENGER HUNT and I couldn’t resist!

Post your own finds on your blog or Facebook page, then share a link back here! Let’s go!
