One for the Books

~~ Action Shot, as Camelot & Vine is placed into the LFL ~~

Yesterday I met my friend Petrea, of Pasadena Daily Photo, at Bean Town.  We had a cup of coffee and a visit, and then we set off for a walk-about.  Our aim was to visit Sierra Madre's own Little Free Library (which I like to think of as the LFL).  Now, did I mention that Petrea is a published author?  Well, she is (cool, huh?), and we went to the LFL to place a copy of her book, Camelot & Vine, into the Library.  Having read the book, I can tell you without question that the lucky someone who takes that book is in for a treat!  However, if you are not that lucky person who borrows it from the LFL, do not despair!!  Her book is available on Amazon, in both paperback and e-book format.  I have both.  Really.

    1. Oh Chieftess - you have totally trumped me! I was feeling pretty cool-adjacent, just for knowing PB, but you are the very coolest!! I read the Kindle version, but got the paperback so she can autograph it for me. Of course, I forgot to take it when I saw her! :)

  3. By coincidence, I just took a photo of a bunch of FREE books! I think we live in an age where there are a greater supply of authors & books, than of readers.

  6. I want one of these. Wonder how it would faire in my hood. Maybe a Spanish/English/Tagalog section.

  7. Thanks for the nice comments, friends. PA, I think it would be a great idea in your hood. If you go to the Little Free Library website you can order a kit, but I think you and Mr. V can make one of your own. I'll put some books in it (hint).

    1. PA, I agree with PH, that you and Mr. V could really make a great one of these.

      Also, PA, Got it!!! I was away for the weekend, but saw your note, and picked it up on the way home.

  9. Better late than never to comment on your photo, your story, the comments left by others and your responses...all wonderful!! The whole concept of having a library just like this to share books is amazing and the bonus here of adding Petrea's book to the collection, lovely.

  11. This LFL was built by my husband Jeff with the help of plans that he found on-line and then slightly modified. The door is a window that he bought at the Habitat store in Pasadena. We love having it, meeting people who come by, and reading the books that people leave. Keep reading!

    1. I wish we hadn't missed you, ellen! May the Little Free Libraries, and reading, proliferate.

    2. Hi Ellen! I'm so proud that you and Jeff have put Sierra Madre on the map with such a perfect LFL. Very nice that the door came from the Habitat store, too... I hope to run into you next time! (Oh, and did you see the post with your kitty and the LFL??) :)
