 “You’re so lucky; you have lots of free time. I wish I had all that extra time, like you do.” This statement came from my seven year old granddaughter, one of four grandchildren that I babysit on a regular basis. She is one of four children, all ranging in age from 2 to 10.

New Adult Fiction @ JCPL: Priceless!

“You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time,” was a favorite saying of my Mom’s. One thing that I think we can all agree on, though, is that the price of gas these days is intimidating.

On With the Story! Check Out These New Fiction Titles From JCPL!

I take books along with me everywhere I go; in fact, on a recent visit to the dentist, I took a book along for company, because "I've been to the dentist before, so I know the drill."

Busy Summer Days Call Some Great New Fiction From JCPL!

Moms are spot-on. With eyes in the back of their heads, 365 days a year, they are all-seeing, all-knowing beings whose sixth sense keeps children (and grandchildren) on the straight and narrow (for the most part).

"I was walking through the park one day; in the merry, merry month of May..." and so the song goes.

It's Only Human to Love JCPL's New Fiction Titles!

Kids are people too. I know this to be a fact, because my seven year old granddaughter tells me so.

She is observant and comes up with some very thought provoking statements. When she was four years old and her baby brother, Eli, was born, in a very mature voice she said, “You know, baby Eli won’t be a baby forever.”

Good Fiction is "In the Bag" at JCPL!

Once in a blue moon,” you “go for broke” and “race against the clock” to find that perfect book to read, and when you do, you realize that you “can’t judge a book by its cover,” because as you read it, you think to yourself, “it’s all Greek to me.”

Try Something New! Check out These New Adult Fiction Titles!

I like to try new things and go to new places, and agree with the late, great Dr. Seuss when he said, “There’s no limit to how much you’ll know depending how far beyond zebra you go.”
