     February is right around the corner; it is National Heart Month, Super Bowl month, and the month that predicts whether winter will last 6 more weeks or end in a month and a half. So many more special events are set aside in February, however, and you’ve probably never heard of most of them.

Hike on Over to Your Local Branch of JCPL for Great, New Fiction!!

Plenty of vacations taken through the years stand out in my mind. Isn’t it always nice to get away? Nicer, still, to get home and just enjoy relaxing with your family.

Some folks like adventure; some like scenery; others just enjoy the thrill of seeing something different.

Operation 'New Adult Fiction' is Underway @ JCPL!

Learning new things is daunting; following directions is not my strong-suit. Discovering, however, that You-Tube contains so many useful tutorials, mostly made by real people, I have come to depend on this quick, concise video format to learn how to complete a variety of tasks.

Great New Adult Fiction is Always in Season @ Your Local Branch of JCPL!

One morning as I ventured into the home of my daughter and four grandchildren, I was greeted by one of their two cats. Asking my nine year old granddaughter where Sugar had been that morning, she replied, “Oh, she was probably out hunting mice, you know, getting as many as she can before hunting season is over.”

Get the Facts From These Great, New Non-Fiction Reads @ JCPL!

One of my favorite games is Trivia Crack. Am I good at it? Not really, but it’s fun trying to remember what I learned in geography, history, science, & art, and how much I pay attention to the world of entertainment and sports.

Enjoy These New Adult Fiction Titles Thoroughly, Through and Through!

American pianist, conductor and composer, David Burge had it right when he said, “Yes, the English language can be weird. It can be understood through tough, thorough thought, though.”

Though the thought behind this tough sentence might be thorough, the toughest thought, is that although thorough, it may be true, through and through.

You'll Find Your Very Own 'One of a Kind' New Fiction Title @ JCPL!

It is said that no two snowflakes are alike. There is a scientific explanation for this phenomena; something to do with ice, molecules, hydrogen and oxygen. I am no scientist, but I do know that when it comes to the human race, no two people are exactly alike, either.

How Do I Love Books? Let Me Count the Ways!

I love words, and because I love words, I love books. In fact, I love books just as much as I hate math, and I hate math very much.

My checkbook knows this, and would actually be better off taking care of itself. Even calculators don’t help, mostly because calculators are only as good as their operators.

Live the Life of Riley With These New Adult Fiction Titles From JCPL!

‘Working like a dog,’ ‘dog tired,’ ‘it’s a dog’s life;’ these phrases give me pause as I look over at both of my dogs, stretched out on a couch in each room, comfy and dreaming whatever dreams that dogs dream.

Kitten 'reading' a book.

New Adult Fiction @ JCPL is 'The Cat's Meow!'

Cats have nine lives; I grew up believing it to be fact. I have 2 cats; one of who is an excellent escape artist and can hide herself away in unknown spaces for any length of time she wishes not to be found.
