Free (or Cheap) Books for Holiday Reading

Sometimes it’s just your lucky day. Don’t you love it when you’re in the right place at the right time? For instance when returning books to the local library and they happen to have a stash of books that they are giving away. With an offer like that I couldn’t pass by without having a rummage through the assorted books.

It didn’t take long for a few titles to jump out at me. Instead of fiction books these were all non-fiction and ones that should make for very interesting reading. The titles I was lucky enough to pick up were:

Contribute to the State Library of South Australia Collection

Did you know that you can play a part in history by contributing to the State Library of South Australia digital collection? Your contribution will become a part of South Australia’s history in a collection called ‘Remember My Story Covid – 19’.

Love Where You Live

For the time being in Australia it’s a good idea to stay within your postcode area. On the bright side this does give you the benefit of getting to know your own neighbourhood better and perhaps see it in a new light. Now can also be a good time to practice your photography, experiment with your camera and gain more confidence in using it. We are fortunate to live near a beach which is usually a popular holiday area but thankfully most people have been adhering to the idea of staying at home for the moment. This is obviously hitting local businesses hard but they can be guaranteed that as soon as we can, we’ll be happily spending money with them, especially if it involves going out for a drink, a good meal and socialising again.

Time to Get Creative

creative lifeThere’s always time for reading! I’d be lost without it and it takes all forms for me. Obviously I’m a big fan of magazines, especially those that promote travel in Australia, caravan and camping and 4WD destinations. I’m also a sucker for house décor and garden design magazines and as for books, I have a huge list noted down that have been recommended by bloggers, friends, websites, reviews I’ve read in newspapers and more. With isolation or at least keeping distances from crowded areas prudent at the moment there is the bonus of indulging in this pastime.
