E-Books and Audio at Your Local Library
Have you heard about Libby yet? Libby is an app by OverDrive that connects you with your library!
With Libby you can read e-books and even listen to audio books. All for FREE! It's super simple to use. Just download the app onto your phone, pick your library, and enter your library card number. That's it! In a few minutes your connected and you can immediately begin borrowing books.
Request a book at your library
Did you know that you can request a library carry a book? If the book is distributed wide, meaning they aren't exclusive on Amazon, then it's likely the book is available through OverDrive and can be purchased by a library to have in their collection. It's easy, just ask! I know Luminata is available through OverDrive, so I'm asking my local library to carry it so people can read it at no cost to the reader. It's a Win/Win for everyone.
I'm currently listening to Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. It's my very first audio book and I have to admit it took me a few minutes to get used to it, but I'm totally diggin' it now.
I'd love to hear your experiences using Libby or another similar app for renting books from the library. Here's the link to find out more about Libby: https://meet.libbyapp.com/
Talk to you soon, Yvonne
A She-sheier She Shack
Thanks a lot State Farm for putting the term 'She Shack' into my consciousness. I'd never heard it called that before, but now that I know about it, I'm hooked. Granted, I may call it my writer's retreat, but She Shacks are definitely all the rage right now.
I've been searching for ideas and I have to admit, I'm a little all over the place trying to decide what I want to do. The hardest part is that I'm pretty handy and I can see my husband, our best friends, and I creating whatever we out our minds to.
It's a blank canvas right now. I could go totally normal and create a modern shed to write in that would be pretty and functional. I can get a pre-fab shed and adjust it to meet my needs. While the simplicity of this idea appeals to me, I keep gravitating to a shack that is more unique. More elaborate. More MAGICAL!
In a perfect world my She Shack would be something out of one of the stories I love to read.
Maybe a castle? I'll be the book nerd in the turret, my reading nook, floating away to distant lands.
Or what about the witches cottage in the woods? I could create a fairy tale tiny home complete with flower garden filled with herbs for potions.
What about the house from Practical Magic? Midnight Margaritas!!!
Oh wait, I'm limited by the size of my backyard. LOL (Reign it in, Yvonne!)
But really, the possibilities are endless and I'd love to have a retreat from the world I could read and write in that is inspiring and I can call a place all my own. So, maybe I can talk my husband into building a mini-castle in the backyard. ;-)
Check out my Pinterest board with the fun ideas I've saved. Let me know which ones are your favorites.
