These Farmhouse Bookshelves

Gift Book

It’s unusual for someone to come to my house and not have a book pressed into their hands. If you stay with me, I will place a stack of books I think you might like by the bed in my third-floor guest room. You will not be allowed to leave until I have slipped a book into your suitcase.

This page is me giving you a peak at the bookshelves lining the walls of this old farmhouse. This page is me slipping a book into your hand.

First, a few disclaimers. I don’t promise reviews in exchange for free books. Southern niceness is bred deep into my bones, and I know I could never be impartial. Of course, don’t let that stop you from sending me free books, if you are so inclined. However, if I mention a book here, it is almost always because I have sought it out myself at the bookstore or library or I have been given it by a friend.

Some of these posts contain amazon affiliate links. If you are lucky enough to have a local, independent bookstore then, by all means, please do your shopping there. Independent booksellers are a rare but precious breed. They deserve trophies, ribbons, and as many book-buying dollars as we can spare.
