Right now, most of us are stuck at home. This is definitely the right and responsible thing to do but we understand that many people don’t have access to books as freely as they did before. Bookstores are still open and you can find out how you can continue to support them right here.
Since April is National Poetry Month, we’ve added some beautiful books in verse. We have also decided to add a few additional Free Reads to our site so that even if you can’t get to your local bookstore you can continue to read amazing books!
