January 12, 2016 – Book Advice
I was surfing the net over the holidays and came across a thread asking people to share the best advice a book ever gave them. This is my favorite!
I don’t use this advice enough! Thanks Douglas Adams for writing this line. Thanks to whomever posted this line and created the image!
**Do you know who I can credit for creating the image? It is not my own, and I would like to make sure the right person gets credit. Thanks!**
November 25, 2015 – Christmas Decorating Idea
This came across my Facebook feed and I just had to share it! I love this – although I’m not sure if it is book blasphemy or a chance to showcase my book love. Thoughts?

October 15, 2015 – Alice and Dorothy, courtesy Gregory Maguire
My favorite author, Gregory Maguire, posted this to his Facebook page today. Too good to pass up!
I mentioned this the other day and some kind soul re-supplied me with it. (It used to be in my teaching files under WONDERLAND, NEVERLAND, CAMELOT, OZ.) From the New Yorker originally. Not sure of the artist.
October 8, 2015 – Awesome Bulletin Board
Check out this amazing bulletin board created by one of my co-workers, Heather Jones. I am jealous of her creativity, but plan to use her work as much as humanly possible!
