I listened to Greenlights written and narrated by Matthew McConaughey after hearing a podcast interview. Funny, poignant and honest McConaughey shares the curves, crossroads and detours as he journeys on the highway of his life.
I was hesitant to listen to Unspoken: A Memoir by Luke Daniels. I wear my heart on my sleeve and was fearful I would be a hot mess, but Daniels is one of my favorite narrators and the first narrator I followed on social media.
Do you love Snowmen? Do you know someone who adores them? Then, The Illustrated History of the Snowman by Bob Eckstein is the perfect coffee-table book to keep or give. Filled with iconic and historical photos of the snowman throughout history I couldn’t help but smile as I read this entertaining and enlightening book.
Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham is an autobiography highlighting Lauren’s career with an emphasis on the Gilmore Girls. Lauren narrate’s the book herself an aspect I enjoyed. I laughed, recalled favorite episodes of Gilmore Girls and reaffirmed my love for Lauren and her character Lorelai Gilmore.
Do you crave making your own bath salt, shampoo, cleaners or making your own brownie mix? Then Little House Living: The Make-Your-Own Guide to a Frugal, Simple, and Self-Sufficient Life by Merissa Alink is the perfect book to add to your collection.
I rarely read non-fiction but from time to time, a book comes along that speaks to me. I am a history buff, a History channel junkie and have a particular fondness for early American history. Liar, Temptress, Soldier Spy by Karen Abbot screamed read me, when I discovered it was about four woman undercover during the civil war.
Today along with Random House Children’s Books we are Celebrating the Civil Rights Movement! As you might already be aware, August 28th is the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s landmark “I Have a Dream” speech, a watershed moment in the struggle for civil rights.
