WBTV Segment (October 26, 2015)

The books I recommended on the show were great to read to children at any time. Why? Because reading to children is always always always important. AContinue reading “WBTV Segment (October 26, 2015)”

The Sound of Glass by Karen White

Karen White does it again. Her latest book, The Sound of Glass, brought together endearing characters with mysterious stories and had me wishing I had nothing on my agenda except reading the entire book in one sitting.

WBTV Segment (August 24, 2015)

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philip Sendker

Maybe it’s the space of life in which I find myself. Maybe it’s the setting in which I read The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. Or, maybe I’m a sap for an interesting love story.
