I've certainly been visiting my local library and hope to start visiting other libraries in the area to feature on the blog. Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscript Library at Yale. The architect's intention was to make the building look like a treasure chest and it certainly has that effect. Stay tuned for a post later this week.
AUTHOR EVENTS ATTENDED:
One book that I plan on reading is Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup. This book will violate the rules of the TBR Triple Dog Challenge as I didn't own it prior to Jan 1st. Its been on my radar and when I saw that the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center was cosponsoring a screening of the film and panel discussion on February 27th, I decided to make an exception and picked up a copy.

What's on your bookish agenda for February?
