  1. My favorite library memory is meeting my boyfriend:) I was in the YA fiction section, and he tripped over someone’s backpack as he was going to the rebuilding a car section (yeah, I really don’t know where that section is;) and practically fell into me, knocked me into the shelf and apologized profusely. We got to talking that way;) Now while he’s fixing up old cars, I read;)

    LOVED Breaking Beautiful – haven’t read any of the other buy they all are on my wishlist.

    Thank you so very much:)

  2. That is a fabulous story!!!! I LOVED Breaking Beautiful too!!!! Good choice and good luck with the giveaway. If you win the boyfriend will have to work on lots of cars. :o)

  3. Wow, what an awesome giveaway! As for fave library moment — I was 4. Mom took me for the first time and I didn’t quite grasp the concept of ‘borrowing’. I thought that book was MINE and surrendered it reluctantly. OK, I threw a tantrum.

    A very pretty librarian came running over with an armload of puppy books similar to the one we’d just returned and assured me I could take as many as I wanted home as long as I promised to bring them back when I was done. I sniffled and said, “You mean I can’t keep them?”

    She said, “You can’t keep the books, no, but you do get to keep their stories.”

    I’ve been hooked since 🙂

  4. My favorite library memory is when they got a new librarian. I go to a small-town library, and I have been called “the person who keeps our circulation up” ever since I started going. The librarians know me on sight and have my library card number memorized – I haven’t used it in years. Then last month, they got a new librarian…who also knows me and my library card number on sight. I’m a famous library-goer 🙂

  5. Wow! Amazing giveaway! I don’t really remember anything in particular about going to the library when I was younger except that my mother had to set a strict limit on how many books I was going to check out because she was always afraid I would lose them. I wanted ALL THE BOOKS. (Ironically, my husband now does that at the book store.)
    I think I spend more time at the library now then I did as a kid. My parents weren’t really that into reading but my son wants to go every day after pre-school. And we ususally do. Hopefully he’ll end up with quite a story to tell when he grows up.

    • I wanted all the books too! I used to bring my own paper grocery bag to carry them home in LOL!

  6. I have a lot of them. I love my library and all the workers know me when I go in. They asked me if I have read a book and if I say no they go hunt it up for me. Anytime I can’t make it for my weekly trip and my hubby goes instead they always ask him where I am.

    • That is the best feeling…when your library knows you inside and out!

  7. Fantastic giveaway, Kimberly! Wow, such a wonderful selection of books.

    I guess my strongest library memory isn’t necessarily a good one:(. But it’s the one that’s stuck with me many years later. I always loved reading fantasy and science fiction, even when I was a kid, and I remember not being able to find much of it in the kids’ section. But when I found a better selection in the adult section, the librarian said I was too young to check them out! I wasn’t that young, maybe twelve, but to this day I prefer to purchase my books.

    • Awwwww what a bummer, but you’re helping to keep writers in business so that’s the silver lining. <3

  8. This is a tough question! I think my favorite memory of a library was back when I was in elementary school. I was always a good reader, but my speech was a little funny. I had a wonderful librarian that would sit with me every Monday morning and read through the Dr. Seuss books to help me speak better. She was always so patient with me and was the only person who didn’t rush me to finish. Afterward she would always give me some sort of treat, usually a lollipop. I was so sad when I had to move into the middle school! Years later when my brother started at my old school, I went with my mom to one of his parent/teacher conferences and ran into my old librarian. She still remembered me!

    • I just want to hug her!!!! Tell her I want to hug her for being awesome!!!!!

  9. Hi,
    I loved spending hours in the small bookstore when I was young. My friend and I would sit on the floor with books all around us, talking about what we wanted to buy and what we needed to buy. I just do not seem to have the time to do that anymore.

    • But we need to make that happen because awesome things happen when we are surrounded by books with no where to rush off to! <3

  10. Thanks for the AWESOME giveaway! My favorite bookstore memory was meeting up with Gina Damico in one by where I live. She recently did a roadtrip tour, and she stopped just for me! It was the first time I’ve met an author and she was so nice!! We just kinda hung out and chatted in the Teen section of the store. It was so great!

    • I LOVE Gina!!!! That is a great bookstore memory!!!! My favorite bookstore memory is now both of my local book launch events. <3 It's going to be hard to top that!

  11. Hmm library moment? I don’t think I have one since going to the library is just the mundane picking out a book and checking it out sequence. 😀
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • But having a library to go to is awesome so that totally qualifies!

  12. Hmmm. . . My favorite library memory is probably when myself and a few friends got to spend the night in our school library. A Night in the Library was actioned off during an annual fundraiser, and my parents won it. So my friends and I along with our awesome school librarian ordered pizza, played hide-and-seek in the school (which got really scary), watched movies, ate candy, then camped out in the kid’s books section of the library.

  13. WOW! This is super fantastic.

    I have several memories from both libraries and bookstores. I think the most memorable and obviously my favorite(s) would be attending author events. The very first one I went to was at a B&N and I was meeting Richelle Mead for the very first time. The line was so super long that it was wrapped all the way around the building outside. Honestly, I was kind of freaked. I’d never seen something like that at a bookstore before. Luckily, I was in the first 10 people in line so I was able to really enjoy the event and it was a huge bonus that I didn’t have to wait in line for hours to get books signed. 🙂

    Thanks so much again for the opportunity!


    • Fan-girl-dom is a fabulous thing!!!!! I remember many special lines LOL! You can make some nice friends on those lines. :o)

      • You are absolutely correct. I’ve made several friends attending events and we still all meet up to talk books and usually grab lunch/dinner either before or after all events now. Couldn’t ask for more! 🙂

  14. My fav memory of the library was the day I discovered Diana Wynne Jones’ Black Maria and started my lifelong affair with fantasy books 😀 I was having a reading slump when I chanced upon the book on the shelf. The blurb sounded interesting so I borrowed it. Needless to say it changed my life! Yay, library!

  15. I have lots of favorite memories from going to the library. My mom gave me a huge love for books by taking me to the library at least once a week, if not more!! If it weren’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be such a book addict! HAHA~!

  16. Well, I go to the library so much that all of the librarians know me by name, even though I don’t know a lot of theirs.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. i have my library card # memorize.

    i used to go to the library almost every afternoon in middle school and it is out of the way of our house. my dad (the only one who could drive then) would always pick me up after his work no matter how tired he was. i’ll always be grateful to my dad for that.

    • That’s an important number to know! And your Dad ROCKS!

  18. My favorite library memory is a little vague in my mind, but it’s still the most significant library moment I’ve ever had. One time when I was younger (sometime before the teenage years, I think) we were at the public library and I couldn’t find anything I wanted to read. Knowing that I would be super bored if I didn’t get any books, my mother went up to one of the librarians and asked if she could help me find something to read. The librarian instantly took me over to a shelf and handed me Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Years later and I’m still a DWJ addict, rereading my favorites every year and trying to collect all of her works.

    • Don’t you just love librarians? Awesome memory!

  19. My best friend is going to grad school for library science right now. She keeps telling me stories about her professors and all the cool stuff she gets to do. I’m super jealous, all I want from life is to be surrounded by books 24/7 🙂
