OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
We invite you to participate as much or as little as you like in the Book Cottage library system! We are writers and publishers, and we want you to enjoy the books your find in the cottage. While you are our guest you can 1). Ignore the books. Eat, sleep, rest, and work as usual! No pressure! 2). You can read any or all of the books! You can also use the sticky notes on the desk to tuck secret messages inside for future readers to find. 3). You can bring a book with you (or find one at a local bookstore) and swap it out with another book you find in Book Cottage. If you do this, we highly recommend that you write in your left book (maybe leave your name, where you're from, the date, and a note for the next reader!) or tuck a little message inside on a bookmark or sticky note. 4). If you find a book you love, you can take it home with you! Yes, just take it! Love it, share it, and remember your stay at Book Cottage fondly.+ More
