Find Free Books in Your Neighborhood
It can feel like luck to stumble upon a Little Free Library (LFL) — those often whimsically decorated boxes that bibliophiles love to place on their front lawn, inviting passers-by to pick up or leave a free book. Now the non-profit organization behind the concept has an app that allows users to find most of the 150,000 LFLs around the world, read their backstories and save their favourites. Download the app for free on iOS and Android devices or search online. It found the six LFLs within a few blocks of my home in northwest Washington, D.C., and only one was missing. (Some stewards, as the library owners are known, choose not to register them with the LFL organization, according to communications director Margret Aldrich.)

Hilderbrand and her fans gather in Nantucket for a bucket list weekend.
Beach Bound? Try the Latest Hilderbrand
It’s beach reading time folks! And few writers are more beach-loving than beloved Elin Hilderbrand, who has been writing her Nantucket-set novels for more than 20 years. Their new one is The Hotel Nantucket – next on my TBR list is the renovation of a storied hotel on the island of Massachusetts haunted by the ghost of a 19-year-old maid who died there in a fire decades ago. See the article : Get 40% Off Official Elden Ring Strategy Guides. It strikes a personal nerve: when I was 18, I spent a summer working as a maid at another hotel in Nantucket. Luckily the experience was far from tragic, but the book brings back some fond memories of those golden (minus the toilet cleaning) few months.
Incidentally, if you’re one of the world’s countless huge Hilderbrand fans, consider accompanying her to her annual Elin Hilderbrand’s Bucket List Weekend, held in Nantucket every January for the past seven years. But the author has announced that 2023 will be the last year for this festive gathering (usually about 150 fans attend), so she is planning two: January 5-9 and January 12-16. Both are full but there is a waiting list. And while itineraries have not yet been confirmed, last year’s gathering was jam-packed with author-led activities, including a walk on the beach, a cocktail party, yoga, and a gala dinner at the Nantucket Hotel (not to be confused with the aforementioned maid-haunted Nantucket Hotel ).
