I thought it was long overdue for a fun list type of post, so today I’ll be discussing 10 of the things I think are the best at libraries!

Reason #1: They have free books!


Reason #2: Did you not see number #1? They have FREE BOOKS!!!!


Reason #3: They are full of interesting bookish patrons like your own bookish self.


Reason #4: If you get to know the staff and be on a first name basis with them, it not only makes your experience better, but they can also recommend great reads.


Reason #5: There is a vast array of physical and electronic books that you can choose from.


Reason #6: You can find a cozy spot to read that new book you just checked out at the counter.


Reason #7: You can literally get lost in books by navigating through the numerous aisle ways.

  1. I agree with all of your points! I went to my library today after work and started reading one of the many film magazines that they purchase every month while sat on a cozy chair amidst students studying. I read a library book on the train home. Sounds counterintuitive but it works.

    1. That’s great! I wish my library carried film magazines. They might have some in their electronic magazine, but I’d have to check. And I pretty much always find myself reading a library book, when I’m not listening to music, when I take public transportation.

  2. I haven’t been to a library in years!! 🙁

    When I was a teenager, I used to go every day after school and even during college. But ever since I graduated, I have preferred to buy my own books because I don’t want to return them. lol

    I used to love going to my corner every day and reading Harry Potter. Fun times!

    Maybe I should go to libraries more often because I currently live in a house with 4 other people and it’s difficult to find peace and quite, which is not conducive to my reading experience.

    1. It is quite peaceful to get some reading done in a library so in your situation it might be a good idea. I love buying new books, but it can get very costly. There are a lot of new books I want to read, but if I feel a bit iffy about the synopsis I’ll pick it up at the library if it’s a pricey hardcover. On top of that I read a lot of series, and I can’t afford to buy each book in each series so the library is such a big help to me. 🙂
