@ Your Library

by Beverly Ewart


Vacation was fantastic, though I didn’t make it through the stack of books I brought along.  The reading plan was ambitious, but my vacation would have needed to be at least twice as long for me to complete what I set out to do.

However, returning with a (slightly reduced) stack of unread books by some favorite authors made for a lovely reentry to routine.  It is always so nice to have a book with which to share the quiet spaces in everyday life.

While I was away we received boxes and boxes and boxes of NEW books!  I have not yet made it through those stacks, either, though I am working fast and furiously to get them out on the shelves for YOUR vacation reading plan.

Visit soon for some great new titles to add to your stack!
