“THE TOP 10 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT NOVELIST”

 

 

Do you like to keep a list of the books you have read?  Is your notebook getting too big to carry?  Have you ever found yourself at the library and left your list at home?

You may be the interested in our database, NovelistPlus.  These are the things I personally like about it:

GOING ON A TREASURE HUNT

 I have always love things that are shiny and glittery. I love to discover buried treasure. I especially love to find something old and restore it to new life.
Maud Smith Marks Library is a great place to discover buried treasure. I love to browse the shelves and find a book I never knew about and discover it is my new most favorite book. A person could do that everyday and always find a book you never heard of before. It might be a new author, a book in a series you missed, a classic you always wanted to read. I have discovered my favorite author in the whole library
