My Own Little Library

A few weeks ago I ran across a cute idea - someone had posted a picture of a little house with a door on it that contained books. People could help themselves from this box  - a little library at a person's home.  Seeing the number of books I have - despite my major book purge this summer- I have been holding this idea in the back of my head and mulling over it.  I talked with my neighbor, a handyman who is great at building and designing all sorts of things as well.

Little did I know that this was just one random picture from the Little Free Library website.  And that there were people all over the nation with their own little free libraries.  If I had an extra couple hundred dollars just lying around I would order myself one right now.  As it is, I feel like I should investigate having my neighbor create one for me, or wait until it is spring and the regular walkers that frequent my street will come back oustide after a winter of indoor workouts in order to get people to actually look at the books in my little library.

At some point I'll have to update you on how this idea is working out for me.  This is one of those things that I saw and immediately knew it was for me, and even a few weeks after I was first introduced to the idea, my enthusiasm hasn't lessened.
