I found a few books at the library booksale, While headed to a nearby little free library I found a new little free library about five blocks South of where I was headed. Lastly some books that were ordered months ago came, and I'm still receiving some choco;ate tea and books sweeps packages.

2.The Shape of Desire by Sharon Shinn
3. War of the Wizards - A World of Lone Wolf RPG fantasy book - I've been collecting these used since high school so I was super exited to find this one at the friends of the library booksale nook. Hopefully it isn't a double copy but the others are currently packed up in storage.

More Little Free Libraries!

Evanston is sprouting Little Free Libraries all over. The following two were discovered unexpectedly while riding my bike to do errands:

Little Free Library at 1206 Hinman ave.

This Little Free Library was spotted while riding home from the library. I love the Tardis structure. It has two shelves with the bottom one full of children's and young adult/teen books and the upper shelf filled with adult books. I did not see any official markings on the box itself, so it looks like it may be unregistered.

Location: 1206 Hinman ave.

Little Free Library at 637 Hinman ave.

While riding to drop books off at the 1206 Hinman Little Free Library I found this new to me location. I tend to ride on Hinman fairly often, so this  may be a newer Little Free Library to the neighborhood. It is located next to a tot lot playground so would be a great place for children's books. When I left my books there it was mainly filled with adult non fiction and fiction. There is an official little free library sign, but no noticeable charter number so maybe it will show up on the official Little Free Libraries map sometime soon.

Side note, A copy of Ill Wind that I released in a different localLittle Free Library and that had spent a good chunk of the spring  there was in this Little Free Library when I stopped and checked it out. With so many little libraries popping up  I can see books easily traveling from one part of the city to another just through the Little Free Libraries.
