I was out walking Rita the other day, and someone had put a "little library" on one of the side streets by our house. It had just started, so there weren't too many books then, but I did get Room, which I've been wanting to read.
The other day, we walked back over there so I could add one of my copies of Rescue Me, Maybe to the collection. I still have some copies with the original cover, so I took one of those.

In Other News...
The *new* Rescue Me, Maybe just officially re-launched on Tuesday the 25th, and it hit the #1 spot on the "Literary Humor" list. Yay!
AND.... if you haven't already, be sure to check out my interview with Meg Donohue and enter the giveaway for her novel DOG CRAZY!
Do you have any little libraries in your neighborhood?
Happy Wordless Wednesday! Thanks to BlogPaws for hosting! You can check out all the blogs in the hop here.
I've always wanted to find a LittleLibrary! They're never near where I live. But i just found one near me in New Mexico (just moved here)!ReplyDelete
I've actually found a couple more just a bit further from our house.Delete
Isn't it a cute little thing?!Delete
Nothing in our neighborhood, but for a while my old job had a spot in the break room. I used to add books to it all the time. Even better, my dog training school has an audiobook shelf where people can share. Since agility trials can be a long drive away, audiobooks make the ride to/from so much better. I had been listening on my work commute as it really eases the frustration of the traffic!ReplyDelete
Ooo, an audio book library would be cool!Delete
I love all the little libraries springing up all over the country! Our area is so rural that I've never seen any here, but the closest village has a library and it is pretty small. lol Congrats on that #1 spot! Well deserved.ReplyDelete
Lol. Well, almost like a little library!Delete
Yeah, hit #1, and then got a mean 1-star review. Just to make sure I don't get a big head. :)
What a cute little library. I think that idea is so cool and I believe there has been some talk in our community about getting a few set up. Congrats on the #1 spot.ReplyDelete
They made it out of some wood crates. It's really cute.Delete
We are starting to see them around the bigger towns here in Iowa also...they are cool. stella roseReplyDelete
That's good. Maybe you'll get one near you.Delete
What a wonderful idea.ReplyDelete
Very nice - I just saw my first one over the weekend before I read this. They had built a little house with a door to put the books in. Then two silver drums for children's books. Nice idea.ReplyDelete
Oh, very nice. There's one a little further from our house that's really nice and looks like a little house too.Delete
Sad to hear in the news that they are "removing" some of the "made-up libraries" It's a great idea :-) and we've seen many on our walks too. Golden WoofsReplyDelete
Oh, no. I hadn't heard that! Had to go google it. Can't believe some people are so crabby and negative about everything they have to gripe until the little libraries come down! Ugh. People!Delete
Congrats on the success with the book!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Hopefully it lasts more than 1 day. :)Delete
Yes we do people are always leaving books and boxes of free stuff on their front lawn and even at the park. How nice to leave your own book! Love DollyReplyDelete
Hopefully someone will pick it to read!Delete
Congratulations on your #1 spot! We don't have any little libraries around here. I saw one somewhere once, but now I can't remember where it was! At the time I thought it was so cool.ReplyDelete
Hopefully people are really using them. Ours is pretty full!Delete
Little LIbraries sound pretty cool. Congrats on your book!ReplyDelete
I love those little libraries. They make neighborhoods seem much more, well, neighborly!ReplyDelete
Jean from Welcome to the Menagerie
Yeah- and our 'hood has a lotta jerks so it could stand to feel more neighborly! :)Delete
The little library - what a neat idea!ReplyDelete
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Isn't it fun? Good way to find new authors and clear out some old books.Delete
Love the little street libraries. You have reminded me to look for some near me. Congrats on the success of oyur book. That is so cool as humour is a tough category.ReplyDelete
Hopefully it will stay there a while! :)Delete
This sounds like a great book! Your little library is really cute. It looks like Rita was having a good time at the library too. Have a happy National Dog Day!ReplyDelete
She was looking for a selection for herself. :)Delete
Little libraries are great! I'm sure people will be delighted to find a copy of Rescue Me, Maybe!ReplyDelete
I hope so! :)Delete
I've heard about those little libraries from our friends who live in the city. We don't have any here. However, the vet hospital where our Angel K had her bone cancer treatments had a little library. I brought a book to trade into the circulation every three weeks when we went there for her treatment. It was a great idea for a stressful waiting room where many pet owners had to sit for hours and hours.ReplyDelete
Oh, that's a good idea to have a little library at the vet hospital. So stressful waiting around in those places.Delete
We know of a couple around our area. People really take time to build them nicely and they seem to be real weather proof too.ReplyDelete
Congrats on being #1. Better save the copies with the original cover. Might be a collector's edition one day. :)ReplyDelete
A little library would be great. Some campgrounds do the same thing. And woo hoo on the release of the book, again.ReplyDelete
I just heard of little library a couple months ago, how very cool and so cool you took your book down there.ReplyDelete
There's tons in our neighborhood. New ones seem to pop up all the time.ReplyDelete

We have a Little Library in our neighborhood, too! It's such a great idea.ReplyDelete
