November is a good time to remember what we are thankful for, and reflect on what is good and true in our lives. This month helps our mindset be put into a ‘thanks’ and ‘giving’ kind of mood. While it may be easy to reflect in our minds and moods, it’s not always easy to [...]
I absolutely love the fall season, and where I live the trees are changing colors and the air is crisp and cool. I recently visited my favorite apple orchard and winery and it was such a sweet and simple pleasure! I am also one of those adults who likes to still dress up in a [...]

Libraries often face the dilemma of unwanted books, those that have [...]
Choosing a book to read, for me, is a never-ending process. I have a stack of unread books on my shelf and an even longer to-read list on my Goodreads account. I always vow to never put another book on the list until I’ve read every to-read book I own, [...]
What does it mean to read from the heart?
We are bombarded with the written word every day. We are thrown little tickers at the bottom of newscasts, huge advertisements on billboards as we commute to work, and then in our email which we get on every device possible. Sometimes all that reading overkill can [...]
