It’s the first day of November! Which also means that it’s the first day of #buynothingnovember! And what better way to celebrate than to talk about library finds… because at libraries, it’s all free! Friends who are doing this with me- the library will be your friend this month? Books? Movies? Magazines? Tickets to local attractions? Music? ALL FREE, nothing to buy. Here are a few of the things I picked out this week.
Everyone Brave is Forgiven (for my kindle)- I try to always have a good book on my kindle, so that when I have a few minutes, I can read from my iPhone, instead of wasting time on Facebook. I have loved all the other Chris Cleave books I’ve read, so I was really looking forward to this one and it hasn’t disappointed this far. I love this dark, but sometimes silly sense of humor, and I really enjoy his characters. I’m enjoying this one immensely. If you don’t check out e-books from your library, you’re missing out! I have probably saved hundreds, if not thousands of dollars getting ebooks from the library rather than buying them.
Where the Wild Things Are (Audiobook) – My kids are obsessed. But I can’t really blame them because this classic was almost meant to be an audiobook. We’ve listened to it in the car probably about a million and a half times. Same thing I said for ebooks goes for audiobooks. My library uses Hoopla to loan out media (including movies and some music along with audiobooks!) and it rocks! It’s worth asking about at your local library. Nature’s Day– Nature stuff. Beautiful illustrations. Lots of great information. Well bound. Children’s books don’t get much better than this, folks.
Zero Waste Home– I checked this out from the library on the recommendation of a friend when she heard I was doing Buy Nothing November. I haven’t sat and read it cover to cover yet, but I’ve done quite a bit of flipping through, and I’m loving some of the ideas in there. I’d recommend it if you’re looking to reduce your waste and simplify your home and life. Can’t wait to dig in more.
When I Was Small– I thought this was such a sweet little book and my kids really liked it. A child asks her mother to tell her about “when she was small” and this is a playful take on the mothers’ answer. It made my kids giggle and I thought it was just lovely.
In the spirit of #buynothingnovember, what do you borrow from the library that saves you the most money? Tell me in the comments; I need all the tips I can get. And if you’re so inclined, link up with us below. Be sure to check out what everyone else is up to, as well. Happy reading!
