Why So Series-ous?

Stories so long they need to be split up

Some stories are long. Real long. But often times, authors take pity on us and break the stories up in to chunks. And that's how a series is born. Here are some of my favorite series for kids.  The first book of the series is discussed along with other series like it. The Giver By Lois Lowry

Crafty Man

One of the hobbies I do that raises eyebrows quite often is knitting. There are so many people I encounter on a regular basis who are just downright surprised that not only can I knit, I'm pretty good at it and I actually enjoy it. Maybe it is because I'm male. Maybe it is because I might not look like someone who is particularly crafty. I don't know the reason, but I do know knitting. Here are a few books that I have used in not only learning how to knit, (being self-taught), but which also serve as good resources once people get started.

The Future is Now

On New Year's Eve in the year 2000, my father and I sat down to watch the classic science fiction movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. While watching it, we commented on how many of the technologies in the movie had either been surpassed or were still too fanciful to have occurred. We decided, in short, that we were living in the future. With each new generation, the future changes but even more fantastic ideas get presented in science fiction. Take for instance, the comparison of communicators in the original Star Trek TV series to iPhones.
