December 3rd is Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day! Here at I Heart Classics, we believe this is the most important holiday of the year. If you don’t have kids, just take yourself and your “inner child” to the bookstore. Hey, it counts!
To learn more about the holiday, visit the TYCtaBD website!
Nestled in the small town of Clinton Corners, New York, next to a small cafe, inside a small British phone booth is America’s smallest library!
Created by the Clinton Community Library in an effort to improve community outreach (success!), The Book Booth is a library powered by the people: besides it’s unique phone booth location, The Book Booth features a “readcycling” program (take a book, leave a book,) specialty hours (open 24/7/365,) and an awesome green initiative (solar panels have been installed on top of the booth, and the light is motion sensitive.)
If you’re in the New York area, The Book Booth is definitely worth a visit. And if you’re planning to be in NY for Halloween, The Book Booth might be dressed up as a certain time lord’s traveling device…

READ: seriously, you should do it.
This was the installation we’ve been tumbling about all day erected on our front steps made of 10,000 Dr. Seuss books as part of the Read Across America celebration. And check out this photo the NYTimes snapped of actress Keri Russell reading The Cat in the Hat to kids.
p.s. What was your favorite Dr. Seuss book?
This is wonderfully glorious!
