Our very first weekly challenge for authors is...
Rainbow Rowell
I wanted to make this one as easy as possible and since one of our book of the months is a Rainbow Rowell I figured this would be an easy peasy week for everyone.

However, in case you aren't reading that book here are some others by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell Landline by Rainbow Rowell Attachments by Rainbow Rowell Carry On by Rainbow Rowell Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell

haha you really can't abuse it, and you don't get fines because it will automatically take the book back unless you renew it.

Oh I like the idea of not getting fines. That's one thing that I sometimes have an issue with because of the due date back. I mean what if an emergency happens and I can't get it back on time because I'm in the hospital or something. I get punished for something beyond my control.

Our library let's you renew physical books online unless there is a hold but yes zero fines with kindle our audiobooks that are checked out through overdrive.

That's not a bad process.

My library doesn't have that process. Of course my library is a tiny little thing. I mean it's turning more into a media center than a library. I have spent little time there over the last few years. One of the last times I went there the kids section got smaller because they put computers on one wall for the kids to use. The other side of the library where they keep adult books has half the amount of books it once had and three-quarters of the room is now computers/media things.

Oh no, ours is really nice and big. I was kind of surprised. Not that Clarksville is a tiny town, but it isn't a city.

Prattville isn't tiny but our library is tiny and it bothers me.

That really sucks. Wish people would realize how important they are.

Yes, because some people can't buy any books. They have to rely on the library.

Exactly, and they aren't cheap.

I thought Landline was okay, I didn't love it as much as I loved other books by her.
