Wonderful Wimbledon Library, I have discovered you. I haven’t been a member of a public library for about 10 years, but Savidge Reads convinced me to join this one as I work nearby and I have to say it makes me feel like a kid again! I had to be restrained as I have lots of books at home stacked up that I haven’t read yet, so I just checked out two non-fiction, “how-to” type books that I can browse at leisure and a very short read, The Stepford Wives, by Ira Levin.
It’s a really excellent library with a huge selection of books and automatic check-out machines as well as plenty of comfy seats for when you fancy a bit of a quiet read. It has inspired me to make a concerted effort to borrow instead of buying this year (unless it’s a book I really want to keep) as I have very limited space at the moment. I think I’ve also found the perfect book to join the tail-end of Bibliofreak’s November Novella Challenge!
Are you a member of a library? Do you like to borrow or would you rather buy books to keep?
