Hi guys! *Waves excitedly*
So as you may know, I
One problem…books cost money…money that (most of the time) I don’t posses. Thankfully this problem is easily solved!
Library’s are full of books, (Duh! XD) and mostly free! One down-side to the library is getting over whelmed. Maybe this doesn’t happen to you, but it sure happens to me! So here are some tips and tricks I’ve found helpful for finding good books in the library.
1. Don’t Worry Before You’ve Tried.
Until a few years ago, I never went into a library, I just bought all my books, because I was too nervous.
What if I damage a book? What if I don’t finish it in time to return it? What if I get a late charge on a book?
All of these things compelled me not to try the library. Until one day I couldn’t find a certain book anywhere! I looked high and low, west, and east, north and south, and… You get the idea. Finally my mom convinced me to look at the library. So after searching the library top and bottom, I found the book I had looked for, for months. And this rolls nice into point two.
2. Get Familiar With Your Library
As I said, I searched the library top and bottom, because I didn’t know where to look.
Getting to know your library is super helpful in finding the book you want. Knowing which shelves have what kind of books, knowing the divisions of your library etc. is a good thing!
3. Finding the Book
So, you’ve completed step one and two, now it’s time to find the right book!
Here are some tips!
First, look for a section of books you enjoy reading
Action? Mystery? Romance? It all depends on what you like. Try finding a section of your library that has the kind of books you want.
Second, scan the titles
Now that you’re in the right section, scan the titles of the books. Are there any that jump out at you? Any that catch your attention? Take them of the self and try the next step!
Third, look at the cover, and author
Does the cover look interesting? Have you ever heard of the author? Do you enjoy his/her other writing? All things to consider!
Fourth, don’t be afraid to read some of it
OK, guys. When I first went to the library, I couldn’t figure out why they had so many chairs and couches. And why those weird people were reading the books before they took them home.
Until it came to me. You can read some of the book before you take it home, to see if you like it! It was like an epiphany! Now I have a favorite seat in the library were I always go to read some of the book. (The seat is blue and very comfy, if you must know. XD)
Fifth and final, try new things
Step out of your favorite kind of books, and try a different kind, you might like it too! I used to only, exclusively, and singly read mysteries. There was no other kind of book, in my book. Then, mom
made asked me to read a historical fiction for school. And guess what?
I enjoyed it.
So yeah. That wraps up my first real post! I hope it wasn’t too boring, so that you guys may have been able to enjoy it!
Thanks for reading!
