On Thursday, July 7th I will be at the Boune Public Library with Laura Woollett as part of their Summer Reading Program! This is a great chance to escape the beach for a bit and grab some books for your kiddos for their summer reading!
I am a book addict. I love the multitude of stories, the feel of the paper, the weight of a novel – everything. And I read – ALL THE TIME. I also snoop all the time when it comes to books, so I’m always stumbling across novels that grab me by accident. Recently, I taught […]
