4 books I checked out from THE LIBRARY this week
You guys, I LOVE the library. Mine has a tally of the value of the books we check out each year and our family is already over the $13,000 mark, and that doesn’t include audiobooks!
So, when I saw that Janssen from Everyday Reading on Instagram shares four books they checked out from the library that week I knew this was something I wanted to do as well.
