Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

Quote of the Day

“The first essential in any book is that it have something significant  to say --a book that leaves the reader with bigger ideas than when hbegan reading - that stimulates his  thinking, stretches his mind, deepens his feelings. A good book sticks  to your ribs.”  

Rebecca Caudill (for whom the Illinois Young Reader's  Book Award is named)
