Ballard, Seattle: Sharing Books with Little Free Libraries

I met a wonderful friend for lunch at the Hi-Life in Old Ballard, Seattle--I recommend the red pepper and tomato soup, by the way--and afterward, traipsed off to do that fun little thing I like to do, which is buzzing around neighborhoods, leaving good vibes, and sharing my stories. Check out these cute Little Free Libraries:

February 2019 Reading Challenge: The Letter V

Along with hearts and flowers, chocolates and cupids, comes a February reading challenge dedicated to another letter from the alphabet, V. Not necessarily V for Vendetta, and doesn't have to be V for valentines. It could be the start of a word, like Verity or versus, or it could be contained within, like Ivy, Heaven, never or selves. To shake things up a bit, I pulled together a nice mix of titles that didn't involve the word "love" or the color pink. Read on:

The Letter V

1.) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

2.) Girl V. Boy by YVonne Collins and Sandy Rideout

3.) The ReinVention of IVy Brown by Roberta Taylor

4.) Penny from HeaVen by Jennifer Holm

5.) Things I'll NeVer Say: Stories About Our Secret SelVes* by Ann Angel
