A couple of years ago I was having coffee at a friend's house when a bunch of boxes arrived. I was surprised to find that she had ordered 5 different winter boots to try on and then ship back the ones she didn't like. Frankly, I was a little appalled. I asked her, "Why would… Continue reading Non-Fiction Friday #2!
Kate Klise and Sarah Klise are sisters who have written and illustrated more than 30 books. Most of their books are written for children ages 7-10. But like most good fiction of this level, their stories are an absolute delight to read as an adult. My favorite of all their books is the 43 Old… Continue reading Serious Series Love: 43 Old Cemetery Road by Kate and Sarah Klise

I argue that since grownups were once children we have locked inside all of us the memories and feelings of being younger. Reading children's literature takes you back and reminds you of things forgotten or pushed aside during day-to-day adulating. Beautifully written children's books are for everyone. But, I feel that a great deal of what… Continue reading Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Throwback Thursday was started by Renee at ItsBookTalk.com to showcase books that were published over a year ago and have been languishing on your to be read shelf. I actually found her throwback because she did a lovely feature of Sophie Kinsella's Twenties Girl for today's post. We all know I am obsessed with Kinsella!

How many of us have been standing in the bookstore or library trying desperately to discern which book is next in a series only to be thwarted by a sale sticker or barcode?
