• Where To Find Books?



    UPDATE!!! (As of April 7)

    I went to a Virtual Workshop and found out about all of these digital options. Give them a try! Click the links.

    This is a link to buying "real" books online. They support local, independent bookstores: Bookshop

    Once again, there are many resources on the MS Library Page. The link is below. E-mail me or Ms. Mouyios if you have questions. (You can check the HS Library Page, too.) Read below, too. There are more ideas there.





    Now that we can't go to the library, or the bookstore, or my classroom shelves, WHAT TO DO?

    Here are some ideas. Please email if you have anything to add to this, including good spots to find books online for digital reading.

    ~Look around your house. Any book has potential. There’s no such thing as too easy or too hard right now. If it looks good to you (and your parents are ok with it if it’s an adult book)- go for it. If you hate it- put it down. If you read it in 4th grade and loved it, read it again. Enjoy what you’re reading. 

    ~Did your friend just finish a great book and you want it? Go get it! But say NOVID (Get it? “No COVID”- I made this up!) Stay 6 feet away from your friend. Or have them leave it on their porch or in their mailbox. Pick the book up with a bag. Leave the book in the bag for a couple of days. NOVID! Get reading. 

    ~Amazon used (or similar sites). Great deals. (Again- NOVID! I’ve been leaving my mail untouched for 24+ hours.)

    ~Digital. I use Kindle to get books from Amazon, but also through my library (Stone Ridge). If you have a library card, search around your library site. Search the web- you can find a lot of books for free or inexpensively. Call Elting to get a library card if you don't already have one.

    ~Reach out to Ms. Mouyios via email or check out what she has on this LinkMS Library Website.  Speaking of Ms. Mouyios, she told us about this once and a parent just reminded me, NYS residents can get the New York City Public Library's SimplyE app to check out books online. Give it a try. Let me know how it goes!

    ~Audiobooks… yep! Go for it. Why not?

    ~What else? Email me with ideas and info!



    This is the Long Room in Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

    (I was there a few years ago. There are A LOT of books!)
