This Little Free Library is located at 3215 Centerwood Court SE, Olympia and is part of the Little Free Library Project. This high quality Little Free Library has bright, cheerful colors and inside there are over a dozen books, mostly children’s chapter books. It seems like I always have read at least one title and this time the title was Gone Girl.
Little Free Libraries is part of a community movement which offers free books. When I considered my first Little Free Library in November 2012, a Wikipedia article informed me that there were over 200 of these libraries. Per their website, there are now over 25,000! Each of the libraries is registered and can be located by their GPS coordinates.
Amazon.com went online selling books in 2005, a brief 10 years ago. This past Tuesday, November 3, 2015, they opened their first bricks and mortar bookstore. It has several unique features.
All of the books face cover out.
Each book has a little card in front of it that says a little something about it’s Amazon reviews.
The prices fluctuate as they do online. To find out the price, the customer uses the Amazon app to scan the book’s barcode.
The store also sells other Amazon technology which customers can use.
The record of the sale has appeared on my amazon account.
And there was a line to get in!
There is currently only this one Amazon Books location in University Village in Seattle.
While I was there I strolled around the entire shopping area, which was very busy! Aooarently dogs of all size and shapes are allowed in all of the stores, but not restaurants or the grocery store. I snapped a couple of shots of the outside art.
Naked Pizza at 417 Ramsey Way (Kent Station), was a takeout stop for me after my dentist appointment today. It is part of a small chain that has 7 US locations (this one, 4 in Virgina, one in New Jersey and one in New Orleans, LA) and one location in Kenya. I really enjoyed the mason jar lighting system over the largest table in the restaurant. When I finally got home almost an hour later (I5 traffic is crazy!) the pizza had to be reheated, but it was very good. Their website tells me that the pizza is made with an abundance of good stuff.
