Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.
Day Twenty One: Library/Bookstore
The King’s English. It’s the best little independent bookstore in Salt Lake City. It’s the reason I get the chance to meet so many incredible authors.
It used to be an old house. There are tiny rooms stashed with books, tons of little nooks and corners and the friendliest staff. The roses in front of their newsletter? They were trimming a rose bush outside and put them in the vase while I was there.
One of my favorite spots in the store is the Mystery room. It’s where the authors sign. It just always looks so cozy and inviting. <3
There is this website called Thrift Books and I just got $66.90 worth of books for $19.93 (five books). Shipping was free. You’re welcome.
Yes! I just bought $82 worth of books for $17.85!

Woodcut of Archbishop Laud as the Antichrist in Witchfinders. Interestingly the unusual south porch of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin (where I took these blossom photos the other week) was partly paid for by Laud’s chaplain and was used against him in his trial of execution - parliamentary troops shot at the statue and you can still see some of bullet holes today.
“My spirit. This is a new thought. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it suggests I’m a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It’s not as if I’m never friendly. Okay, maybe I don’t go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but i do care for some people.”
