Perfect Book Lovers Vacation – The Open Book, Scotland

Are you a book lover? Do you need a vacation? Are you willing to wait…3 years?!

Well look no further because I got you covered.

This wonderful little bookshop has a room available and for $50 a night, you can run the bookshop!

No better way than to be able to run a bookshop for a week with a little less commitment. Sounds perfect, right?!

CBS did a wonderful little segment on it, which you should check out below!

While it does hurt me a little bit that the bookshop isn’t run by a massive book lover (she watches the movies more than reads the books) it’s still a fantastic idea. There’s also a potential up-and-coming movie about this place. Not sure how to feel about that, but I guess well see.

But if you’re looking for a little quiet get away, and are willing to wait about 3 years for a spot (as she’s completely booked up until then) then this is your destination!

New Years Reading Challenges

New Years Reading Challenges

Are you looking for some reading challenges for the New Year to motivate yourself?

Don’t worry. I have some great suggestions for you!

Penguin has a fantastic reading challenge going on. They give you a prompt for the month and if you can’t think of something, they suggest some great books. Check it out!

Want a classic book challenge? Penguin has you covered too! Each month they have a new classic book suggested to read! I’ll be trying to join that one when I can, as I’d really love to read more classic books this year.

If you want something a little lighter, and more of a ‘bucket list’ style, check out this challenge from PopSugar! It has some fantastic suggestions, and you can definitely find some simpler books to complete it, if you’re pushed for time!

Heroes We Need, But Don’t Deserve

Sometimes people come forward who do something so good for others, even when others don’t do good things to them.

That is exactly what is happening at McPherson Square Library in Philadelphia.

The librarians are having to teach themselves how to administer Narcan because of so many overdoses on their lawn and on their property.

It’s disgusting that the town cannot come to conclusion about what to do, provide the training themselves, or give them the support they need.

Instead, the librarians took it into their own hands.

Read the full article.

As Batman once said, “A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.”

I am pretty sure that these librarians qualify. They are going way above what they are required to do.

“14 of the Most Spectacular Libraries in the USA”

Chronicle Books came up with 14 of the Most Spectacular Libraries in the USA and I have to say, I 100% agree with this list.

Like wow, some of the places I just wouldn’t ever want to leave. I mean, I can’t complain about my library at all as it’s small and adorable and I love it, but these places are just…wow!
