I love libraries

I have a confession. Sometimes I cruise library websites to see if my book is checked out. and then I try to imagine the person who is reading it. For me, a trip to the library is like going to a candy store. Or even better–Harrods in London. I always come home feeling richer and full of anticipation.

And now I know someone who checked out my book from her library in Indianapolis–the incomparable 2009 Debutante Saundra Mitchell. And she sent me a pic!

If you haven’t read Saundra’s book yet, you’re in for a treat. SHADOWED SUMMER is a delicious ghost story with romance, friendship, and family secrets rolled into one. If your local library doesn’t have it, be sure to request it.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that my library owns your book, and I’ll sooon post a recommendation for it on our staff picks for teens web site! It’s always great to see an author who appreciates libraries!

  2. I totally appreciate librarians. Because they love books. And know so much about them! I spent a lot of time talking to librarians when I first decided to write for young adults.

    Plus I’d go broke trying to support my reading habit without libraries.

    If you think of it, could you send me the link to your recommendation?

    And I’ve been thinking of offering free Skype visits to book clubs, if you have any of those 🙂

  3. Will do–hopefully will get that up this week! I have one up on my personal blog right now: http://beckerdwellinginpossibility.blogspot.com/

    We currently don’t have a book club, but I’ll keep it in mind if we ever do & if colleagues ever ask for recommendations!
