Your Friday Five

Bummer reading.

Summer reading is a real joy: breezy beach reads and long road trips accompanied by lighthearted audio books. But that's basically over now, and it's at this time of year that I just decide to embrace the imminent shortening of sunlight hours, the browning and dying of all things green and alive, and the weather's frightful march toward winter.This is when I get my bummer reading in, and I fully enjoy it. Real downers -- books that make me uncomfortable, unsettled, unsure, and unhappy -- are some of my favorites.

I <3 Paris

Oh la la! Paris, the city of lights.  A creative hub for writers and artists alike.  After doing several French preschool story times, I’ve felt inspired to do a Friday Five list about this magical city.  Through the pages of these children’s books, you can take a quick tour of the sights without having to spend a dime.

Good Taste in Coffee... Good Taste in Books

Some Book Suggestions from the Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel

We are a mid-week in our two-part Saturday morning coffee tasting program. This past Saturday, as we sipped our delicious coffee and rich talk from Peregrine Espresso and Madcap Coffee, we learned about the complex and poetic vocabulary that coffee lovers use to describe what they are drinking.
