Louise Reads: The Good House by Ann Leary. | I happily dove into into The Good House. I’ve been a fan of Ann Leary (wife of comedian/actor Denis Leary) since her 2004 memoir, An Innocent, a Broad. Her 2009 fiction debut, Outtakes From a Marriage, was equally enjoyable., and her blog, with peeks into her life with her family and menagerie of animals in rural Connecticut, is a lot of fun to read. I am happy to report The Good House did not disappoint...

Miri finds herself and her place in her family and the community in this book for grades 4-7. She is the heroine, but will she be the princess? Are the two mutually exclusive?

Cozy Wednesday with Leslie Budewitz – Author of Crime Rib (Giveaway too!)

Finding time to read should be non-negotiable. I often tell my students how important reading daily is. Often we only read what is necessary and do not read beyond what is expected. In today's digital age you have many options for reading and can even listen to great books as well. True learning moves beyond the classroom and can only be found deep within the seams of a great book.

I figured this book might be too young for my kids. It is a clever read-aloud for parents to read to toddlers and preschoolers. But my third grader has almost read the entire thing to me now, as his daily reading assignment for school, tackling some BIG word and rhyming tongue twisters a midst the giggles that are hiding God's word in His heart. So thrilled!

The School of Essential Ingredients -1st Book - good read, but had an abrupt ending!

The New York Times bestselling author of Just My Type and On the Map offers an ode to letter writing and its possible salvation in the digital age in TO THE LETTER. Simon Garfield traces the fascinating history of letter writing. At a time when the decline of letter writing appears to be irreversible, Garfield is the perfect candidate to inspire bibliophiles to put pen to paper and create a form of expression, emotion, and tactile delight we may clasp to our heart.
