Whether you usually read off of your own book pile or from the library shelves NOW, chances are you started off with trips to the library. (There’s no way my parents could otherwise have kept up with my book habit when I was 10.) So … What is your earliest memory of a library? Who took you? Do you have you any funny/odd memories of the library?

I must say (& I really hate it) that I don't have a favorite book store in the town where I live. We do have a Hastings & it is fine, but I don't really shop there that much. In the town close by, they have a Barnes & Noble, which I do enjoy visiting. My favorite book store, the one I actually use the most is Amazon.com. I can find out all kinds of information about books I am interested in there. I can read editorial reviews, reader reviews, top-selling lists, & I can buy new or used. I go book shopping way too much, at least once a week, if not more. I do not attend events at local bookstores, there are none that I know of. I will have to check LT to see if there are any events.
p.s. please enter my book giveaway:)

The Miracle at Speedy Motors
by Alexander McCall Smith
I always enjoy reading the next book in Alexander McCall Smith's #1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. The Miracle at Speedy Motors is another enjoyable story of Precious Ramotswe and her assistant, Grace Makutsi. At the agency, the ladies have a mysterious letter writer and a lady looking for relatives. At home, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni meets a doctor who claims he might be able to heal their adompted daughter and Mma Makutsi has a little incident with a new bed. This series is always charming, warm, and feels like an old friend.
