Hey Book Nerds!
This is just a quick between-episodes post because I couldn’t resist sharing a book-related tidbit with you.
It’s a library. In a grocery store.
Wait, no, that’s not quite right. It’s a grocery store that is now a library.
I haven’t succumbed to any panic buying during the pandemic, but I could see myself raiding the shelves at this grocery store!
So this particular library is the Carmel Clay Public Library in Carmel, Indiana, and they’ve turned a former grocery store into a library. Instead of canned food, they have Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, instead of dried beans they have Barbara Kingsolver’s The Bean Tree. Looking for the candy aisle, you’ll find Laura Esquival’s Like Water for Chocolate.
And while I think stocking the shelves of a store with books instead of junk food, is a brilliant idea, unfortunately, this is only temporary while the Carmel Clay Library waits for a the construction of brand new building.
Seriously, though, you can’t beat finding books like Winter’s Bone, The Winter’s Tale, The Snowman, and The Ice House in the freezer department.
If you want to see the full article about the library from the American Library Association, you can find it at Books Fill the Aisles at This Supermarket.
But before you go…I also want to share a couple new book promotions you might be interested in. The first features books with a historical setting where the ladies take the lead. And the other is full of free tomes ranging from horror to sci-fi to fantasy. Just scroll down tad bit to see the deals.
Have fun browsing, and as a bit of fun, let me know a title of a book and where you’d shelve it in your grocery library!
