On Saturday I managed to have an unplanned day revolved solely books and it was awesome! I’ve recently become a little obsessed with the library and it’s seemingly infinite amount of knowledge you can get for free. I know we can find all this stuff instantly online but there’s something special about being literally surrounded by words and information. Books are just that little bit more magical than reading Wikipedia. Curling up with your laptop isn’t quite the same!
I’ve been reserving a lot of books from the library too lately. I’m not sure how it works where you are, but in Kent you can search the libraries all around the county and if you want a book from another location, they’ll transfer it to your local library for free! A godsend if you are always after very specific books and your local never ever seems to be the one to stock them!
Our local library is this beaut. Just look at it!!
I headed into town early on Saturday to pick up my reservations. Looking forward to getting stuck into these:
Saturday night I visited the Folkestone Book Festival, an event I worked on for 3 years and haven’t been back to since! The discussion between Matt Haig and Nathan Filler we attended was based around both of their books focussing on various mental health issues. The conversation and Q&A was really interesting and open regarding their own experiences and discussed what we can all be doing to help. Because there is never enough we can all be doing to make each other’s lives that little bit better.
