Bonus-

What is a Little Free Library and what’s so special about it?

-A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. In its most basic form, it’s a wooden box of books where anyone may pick up a book or two, or bring a book to share. If this were just about providing free books on a shelf, the whole idea might disappear after a few months. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. These aren’t just any old books, this is a carefully curated collection. The Library itself is a piece of neighborhood art that functions like a mini-town square.)

-How many Little Free Libraries are there?
As of July 2015, there are over 30,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world.)

**Using the letters from ONE or more of the following words- 'LITTLE', 'FREE', OR 'LIBRARY', you may read a book by an author whose first or last name starts with that letter or you may read a book whose title or series title starts with that letter. Feel free to disregard articles: a, an, the, etc. If you use the series title, please make sure to include that in your book list.

Example-
F-Tawna Fenske- Marine for Hire
R- The Rosie Project
E- Eve Langlais- Bunny and the Bear
E- Otherwise Alone(Evan Arden, #1)


There is no minimum page requirement for this challenge. Rereads and audiobooks are allowed. The Bonus can be done with any level and done any time during the challenge.

You may update your original post as the challenge progresses, but please repost upon completion!

What is a Little Free Library and what’s so special about it?

-A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. In its most basic form, it’s a wooden box of books where anyone may pick up a book or two, or bring a book to share. If this were just about providing free books on a shelf, the whole idea might disappear after a few months. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch and there is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community. These aren’t just any old books, this is a carefully curated collection. The Library itself is a piece of neighborhood art that functions like a mini-town square.)

-How many Little Free Libraries are there?
As of July 2015, there are over 30,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world.)

**Using the letters from ONE or more of the following words- 'LITTLE', 'FREE', OR 'LIBRARY', you may read a book by an author whose first or last name starts with that letter or you may read a book whose title or series title starts with that letter. Feel free to disregard articles: a, an, the, etc. If you use the series title, please make sure to include that in your book list.

Hi Julia! The Genres that the book has shelved are to the right of the book's main page. The top genres for that book are listed there. It is based on how the book is shelved on reader's shelves. Although Slammed doesn't have 'Poetry' listed on the main page, it is shelved by 101 members, and is obviously poetry. You can use it :)
I will reword the task to make is easier to understand and find something for :)

*edit

I'm not sure if the whole book is written in poetry form, but you can use it, as poetry plays a large role in the story. I edited #4 to reflect this.
